Bob designed these hip boot style over-boots after having to wade creeks and bogs while out hunting and where a majority of the time a standard boot would be much more comfortable to wear than being in hip-boots. We now have floatplane pilots, surveyors, dog sled musher’s and hunters that are true believers in this unique item. They are designed to be worn over your regular footwear. The Sourdough Slipper are a weight saving alternative to hip boots on hunts where occasional wet areas are encountered. They are not intended to replace hip boots but to offer an alternative. These over boots are constructed of abrasion resistant cordura nylon upper. They also a Vibram sole, reinforced rand, Velcro belt loop to hold the over–boot and an adjustable leg cinch to help keep out water if the creek is deeper than you thought. . The Sourdough Slippers are a great addition to anyone’s hunting gear.
