Vision Fly Fishing is collaborating with global tyre company, Michelin, to develop high performance rubber soles for its wading boots.
The UK brand, part of Guide Flyfishing, will launch its first wading boot with Michelin soles later this year, reports Tackle & Guns magazine in its March issue.
Vision revealed that it began developing and testing product a year ago. “We contacted Michelin when we found it had started working with outdoor shoes,” said a spokesman. “We told them about the need for a more premium rubber in fly fishing.”
Vision has been developing rubber compounds for wading boots for more than 10 years.
