Tucket Giller with Realtree Xtra makes Perfect Fall Shoe

 

Tucket Giller with Realtree Xtra makes Perfect Fall Shoe

by Craig Lamb 

Until recently finding a camp shoe combining style with functionality was next to impossible.

You could find a stylish pair to sport around town. Showing the world you live the outdoor life came with a cost, though. The rugged look wore the same way, as in hard on the feet.

Now you can get a pair of shoes made by Tucket Footwear for wearing around town or at camp. These shoes feel comfy and can be worn the year round. Best of all they are functional, stylish and come in a camo pattern worn by serious hunters.

The shoe is the Giller, and they are now available in Realtree Xtra, the most universally popular camo pattern worn by whitetail deer, wild turkey, and waterfowl hunters. Basic leather colors are also available.

Realtree designs the world’s leading camouflage pattern, and started the industry revolution for innovative hunting clothing and patterns in 1986. Since then, wearing Realtree has evolved into a lifestyle, not just a camo pattern worn by hunters.

The match is perfect for Gillers, made using a patent-pending outsole and features that stand out to make the shoe one-of-a-kind. Tucket designed the Giller with a purpose.

“Before now no one made a camp shoe designed with performance features,” notes Dennis McCormick, a respected veteran of the outdoor apparel and shoe industries. “You couldn’t wear such a shoe without it getting wet and staying wet.”

Getting wet is part of being outdoors, obviously. McCormick, the founder, and president of Tucket, calls the Giller a performance shoe and the first of it’s kind. He has plenty of facts to support the claim.

 The EVA innersole is the most popular material used by Nike in many of its high performance running shoes. So you get the same comfort and foot support as your running shoes with a unique twist.

What else makes the Giller different is being the first drainable shoe of it’s kind. The Giller has 24 drain holes that quickly drain water to speed up the drying process. Completely submerge the shoe, and it will drain and dry within seconds.

What else is really cool about the drain-minding design is the patent-pending outsole. Multiple pods quickly channel larger volumes of water through angled treads that are counter-angled to the next thread. So water drains from the sides of the shoe and through the bottom.

Those features even provide superior grip. No more foot slippage that can sprain ankles. Feet stay inside the shoes instead of coming out. You get a firm footing on a slippery boat deck, another plus for my feet. The outsole material has even passed slip testing by OSHA standards for occupational footwear.

The Giller is light, too, and thus the reason why it can be worn all day, anywhere and anytime. One shoe in size 11 weighs just 8.4 ounces. Slip on a pair and you don’t even feel like they are on the feet.

All of the above features add up to the perfect camp shoe. To clean them all it takes is rinsing off the dirt or washing with a mild soap. The shoes will be ready to wear again within a few minutes.

Best of all, the same Gillers you wear in duck or deer camp can be worn in town when date night rolls around. Add a pair of socks, if the dress code is required, and you have the perfect shoe for the night.

There is a feel-good aspect of wearing the Giller beyond the performance features. For every pair purchased, the company donates funds to community food banks to buy at least three meals per consumer purchase.

“We want our company to fulfill a greater purpose,” added McCormick. “The fact is that there are many children all around us that go to bed hungry every night.”

The Giller in Realtree Xtra is available in whole sizes, from 9 through 12. Get a pair for $80.
