LaCrosse Ursa MS
LaCrosse continues to build on their lineup of rugged boots built for the backcountry. Their latest offering is the LaCrosse Ursa MS (mid-season). It’s a boot that was five years in the making, with an end result that gives hunters one of the most stable, lace-up leather boots on the market. The boot features a highly durable upper construction consisting of TecTuff PU-infused leather with proven abrasion resistance that outshines traditional leather and a quick-drying, breathable SuperFabric quarter panel and gusset for protection against abrasion; and a large Hexguard rubber rand that has been cemented and double stitched for unrivaled durability.
The boot also features a GORE TEX breathable liner to provide waterproofing and breathability, while the Vibram Mont outsole optimizes traction, support and durability. It’s a 7″ boot that weighs in at 3.1 lbs (men’s size 10). The boots are available in Gunmetal/Orange and Brown/Gold.

The all-new LaCrosse Alphaterra boot is the perfect boot for hunting camp, or stomping through mudholes out on the farm. They’re built with hand-laid premium rubber over a 5mm neoprene core for waterproof comfort. They are easy to slip on and off thanks to a side zipper construction. Their thick, EVA midsole makes these boots super comfortable with shock absorption and rebound underfoot. The boots are available in men and women’s sizes.

That’s less than half the weight of other waterproof boots in its class.
You’ll find a comfort range from 10 – 80 degrees and an insole that’s built right into the boot, meaning no more soaked insoles or time on the boot dryer. With their easy on/off design, these boots are very hunter friendly, and best yet, they’re priced at just $90.
