When it comes to hunting boots, the equation goes like this: Every ounce of boot becomes a pound of boot after 10 miles of walking. Dryshod is asking us to try a new equation, the Evalusion Hunt. The company promises a 12% reduction in the weight of their already-trim footwear line (of course, the exact weight will depend upon your shoe size). The all-new Evalusion Hunt, Evalusion Hi, and Evalusion Ankle boots boast a first-ever outsole material that makes them exceptionally light in weight, but does so while delivering superior traction and support on any terrain.
The Evalusion is Dryshod's first waterproof boot line to feature the company's exclusive Dureva outsole technology. Dureva is a lightweight and abrasion-resistant fusion compound that delivers the superior durability and traction demanded in a high-performance outsole while offering exceptional comfort, energy return and stable footing. This means a secondary rubber outsole is no longer required. By eliminating the need for a secondary outsole, Evalusion boots are nearly one pound lighter than Dryshod's already lightweight counterparts. Such weight reduction lets you go farther and for longer duration without the fatigue commonly associated with waterproof boots.
In addition to the weight reduction, the Dureva compound maximizes traction performance with the Evalusion's multi-lug tread design. The tread offers optimal stealth by quietly flexing and bending over ground elements. This is of great value to hunters, of course, but also to anyone moving over difficult terrain where superior traction is essential. Although the boot is currently only available in men's sizes, there's one more equation to know: Add two sizes to the men's size to get the women's size. (Example: A man's size 6 would be a woman's size 8.) MSRP $179.95; DryshodUSA.com.
