Best New Footwear
Footwear is a new separate category at the 2012 EFTTEX Best New Product Awards. The move recognises the unique innovations that set footwear apart within the clothing sector of the angling industry.
Wader specialist Snowbee is demonstrating the breadth of its product range by entering its new Prestige Nubuck Wading Boots, made of genuine ‘waterproofed’ nubuck leather. It faces competition from the new Move Mountains Seeglo pac-boots, made from, the company says, ‘the highest quality thermoplastic rubber’.
Waders are well represented. Chinese company Jinye Sports has entered its new Neoprene Fishing Waders in a camo design; Poland‘s Lemigo has a new line in hip waders – the Aqua X Lite; and the USA’s Redington has its Sonic-Pro Ultra Packable Wader designed for destination anglers.
