Chub Vantage Footwear
Want footwear that provides support and protection from the cold and wet? The new Vantage collection from Chub checks both boxes…

1. Vantage Field Boot

The clear hiking heritage of these boots means one thing: they’re rugged to the core. They’ve been engineered from a tough leather-and-nylon combo, making them equal to anything that the carp-fishing environment can throw at you… and more.

Not only are they lightweight and breathable, the Field Boots are waterproof up for to 4hrs of immersion. A comfortable, thermal-lining keeps your feet toasty, and sweat, the biggest threat to warm feet, can wick away through the breathable upper. It’s a clever combo that’s easily overlooked, and one that allows you to walk, and walk, and walk in search of the most elusive quarry, without your feet getting damp and cold.

The sheer depth of the tread promises more stability than most fishing footwear and the sculpted ankle support offers plenty of reassurance when navigating tricky terrain. “GIMME”: £89.99; chubfishing.com

2. Vantage Ankle Boot

These awesome all-rounders draw on the ruggedness of the Field Boot, but cut out some of the bulk, making them great summer footwear. Their suede-and-nylon construction offers plenty of flexibility, balanced with extreme durability; these boots won’t quit on you.

Like their bigger brothers, the Ankle Boots boast waterproofing that is guaranteed for up to 4hrs; traipsing through wet grass doesn’t have to mean wet feet for the rest of the morning any more.

The sole has especially deep tread, providing fearsome grip, which makes these boots perfect for scrambling into the very toughest carp-spotting territory. “GIMME”: £69.99

3. Vantage Camo Trainers

Wait… a waterproof trainer? Yep, but not just that – one that looks good and is made from real leather, fused with lightweight nylon too.

As with the rest of the Vantage range, these trainers are waterproof for up to 4hrs of immersion, which is more than adequate for our needs, right? Couple that with an extra-tough, grippy, waterproof sole and we reckon that you’ve got something approaching the perfect summer shoe.

What’s more, rather than churn out a me-too camo pattern, the guys at Chub have selected a special design that is definitively individual. Props guys, we like ‘em! “GIMME”: £74.99
