We occasionally come across a piece of equipment which raises eyebrows at first glance, the Mudderboot is one such product! Designed to be used on soft ground where there is a risk of someone sinking, the Mudder boot or mudders ‘wings’ spread out when the user stands on soft mud or sand keeping the person on the surface. These wings contract when on hard surfaces allowing the wearer to walk relatively normally.
The Mudder boot are a one size fit’s all boot and can be used with a variety of high leg footwear (wellies work best!). Whilst they could in theory be used with low slung footwear, the straps are likely to chaff the user. Ideal for cocklepickers, fishermen collecting bait, ecologists taking samples, mud rescue teams and many more…
The following video of the Mudders gives an indication of how useful they are. Compare the person who starts at the side of the boat wearing Mudders to the person making their way from the jetty side on the left!
