Ultra-lightweight boots, designed for walking across lowland environments without a feeling of tiredness in the legs.
When walking across expanses of wide open lowland, for example, it is not uncommon to walk many miles behind your dog when hunting pheasant or partridge. Hunters therefore need to be wearing light boots, which allow them to move across muddy terrain without the weight of these boots becoming a limitation. That's why our hunting engineers have developed this rubber model – the lightest in our range.
How can your boots ensure optimal comfort when you go out hunting?
With a weight of 1.7 kg in UK size 8½ (EU 43), which is less than the Aigle Arnay boot, the design of these hunting boots is based on Solognac's exclusive new rubber formula, which has proven itself with the Renfort 900 boot. And what about comfort? Comfort is provided, at the arch, by the 4 mm thick insole, as well as by an ultra-absorbent lining that dries very quickly (useful when hunting at the beginning of the season in the heat or in high humidity).
Optimal grip made possible by developing a new sole
Depending on your region, hunting in lowlands is often associated with beetroot fields, whereas in other regions enthusiasts may be moving across clay soils. So the grip must be excellent. For example, our teams have designed an outer sole (specific stud design and height) to help sticky mud come off the boot. For this, our designers took into account the opinions of our testers in order to develop distinctive grooving.
Rubber boots that remain resistant to vegetation
Our 500 Light boot (especially on the lower part and instep) provides resistance and protection against the low vegetation that can be encountered when hunting in lowlands. 100% rubber sole. This new formula has been specially developed in collaboration with an advanced laboratory so that you can enjoy peace of mind on your hunting expeditions and have no trouble following your companion tracking the scent of a hare or a rabbit.
To make sure your boots last and stay flexible, follow our maintenance advice
We know you can't wait to try out our boots. To keep them in good condition, clean after each use with water and/or Ph neutral soap (avoid using hard brushes or abrasive sponges). Then wipe them with a cloth or leave them to dry in a well-ventilated place away from heat sources. Store upright and not folded to avoid the rubber wearing down or cracking at folds.
How to protect your boots
To protect your rubber boots all year round, we recommend using a silicone-based spray on the upper (boot restorer spray available on the website) a few times a year. The silicone creates a protective layer between the outside and the rubber, making it is possible to extend the lifespan of the product. Store boots upright, away from humidity, preferably in a dry, well-ventilated place.
