traction pattern. Most traction patterns are designed to go forward or side to

comfortable transitional feel and still remains very durable. Moving upwards the

stitched on or welded on uppers that will shred or peel over time the Attack is
a single piece that will remain intact even under extreme abuse.

Attack will be available in sizes from 7-13 and will retail for $89.99 when it

their technical fishing apparel needs from hood to toe.
