Our Muck Fall ’22 collection is really focused on and inspired by that consumer’s specific needs,” said Xavier Kawula, senior product manager at Rocky Brands, Inc., parent company to The Original Muck Boot Company. “Not only are our new style offerings designed for higher endurance excursions and increased mobility, but they also incorporate the best in footwear innovation available on the market – from insulation to traction to protective yet durable flexibility.”
