Gear: The Mudder Boot

You may have read our prior post about the re purposed snow shoes being used to aid marl walking on the Espn series "Pirates of the Flats." Our research on the subject also led us to find the Mudder Boot.

"Mudders overcome the two difficulties of mud travel sinking and suction by copying nature. Many of natures creatures are able to walk quite easily on soft mud. The Great Blue Heron inspired the inventor of Mudders with its ability to widen its foot when it steps down and contract it as the foot is lifting. Mudders work in the same manner."
