Palm Equipment have updated the super popular Gradient boots for 2016. The previous version is firm favourite at Unsponsored HQ.
So what have Palm done to make the Gradient boots better?
Firstly river boots can have a tough life so making them as simple as possible and adding key reinforcement. So Palm have reduced the number seams, bulked up the components and have added reinforcement at the high wear points.
The good bits still remain, such as the grippy Vibram sole, good ankle support and low/boat friendly profile. We’ll hopefully get a pair in very shortly for review.
