In 1999, The Original Muck Boot Company™ was founded with the sole purpose of supplying the most comfortable, high-performance outdoor footwear on the market. Over the years, Muck Boots™ has expanded into the work, farm and garden, outdoor-sporting, equestrian, and casual-footwear markets. Its exclusive technology and construction sets the standard for comfort and quality in outdoor footwear. Today, Muck Boots™ has a reputation for providing the most reliable footwear that works anytime, anywhere, and in the harshest conditions. They launched muckbootcompany.com as a new direct-to-consumer channel in October. This meant the winter selling season was already well underway so they were a little slow out of the starting gate. Having already had great results with Rocket Fuel, they turned to them again.
