Best outdoor boots for 2021 in Alaska
|Muck Boots Men’s Apex Mid Zip
These boots fit really well, are comfortable and are fully waterproof. We used them on multiple adventures, and wore them moose hunting. They held up well to the abuse, especially when packing out the 1200-pound beast. The boot features a lugged rubber outsole, dual-density insole, EVA midsole, breathable mesh lining and antimicrobial footbed insert. We like that they are relatively light, while remaining rugged and waterproof, and are easy to put on and take off with the integrated zipper.
|Lacrosse 14” Men’s Alpha Range Boot
These waterproof boots are up for just about any outdoor task you’ve got in mind. The 5 mm neoprene offers warmth, and the gusset at the top makes it easy to customize the fit for different calf sizes. We like the aggressive sole. It provides exceptional traction and the kick-off plate is handy for removing the boots, especially when they are covered in mud.
|Grundéns Women’s Deck-Boss Ankle Boots
Having tried a plethora of waterproof boots for women in her 20 years of field-testing gear for Fish Alaska, Melissa Norris is giving this footwear two thumbs up. The comfort level is among the best she has tried for rain boots thanks to the thicker insole design by Grundéns.
|XTRATUF Men’s 6 In Ankle Deck Boot
These boots feature XTRATUF’s signature slip-resistant Chevron outsole that gives you excellent traction no matter how slippery the deck becomes. The ankle boot is comfortable, waterproof, and easy to put on and take off due to the pull-on tabs. They are available in a variety of color options.
|XTRATUF Women’s 6 In Legacy Lace Boot
There is no doubt Alaskans love their XTRATUFs. The facts are that many of us have multiple styles and several pairs. And now with their recent onslaught of stylish releases like the completely waterproof 6 In Legacy Lace Boot, it’s easy to add one of the best outdoor boots to your collection. It is a great Alaska-style, all-weather, all-purpose boot.
