Hoggs has designed and manufactured this wellington boot to incorporate a 4mm neoprene lining. Neoprene is a synthetic rubber which is laminated on to spongy foam to help maintain flexibility. It is very tough! More commonly used in wet suits, neoprene has been used for laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces, electrical insulation and automotive fan belts. There are many benefits of wellies with neoprene lining, including:

  • the excellent insulation properties against the cold
  • the absorption of impact energy
  • a comfortable wear as it moulds itself around the foot

XS Trek Vibram SoleIn addition to the neoprene lining, there is also a removable cushioned EVA insole with memory foam inserts. This insert will offer excellent shock absorption!

Sole Unit

Wide lugs, fantastic grip, and great comfort!

The Hoggs Field Sport wellingtons has an XS-Trek Vibram outsole unit. Vibram is a leading provider of highly technical sole units. This XS-Trek outsole unit offers fantastic grip, abrasion resistance, comfort, traction and durability. The wide lugs on the XS-Trek outsole are self-cleaning, so no more carrying excess mud!
