  • RUGGED SHARK

    An acquisition of SG Companies in 2009, the Rugged Shark® brand began life as a single boat shoe designed to bring marine footwear into the 21st Century. While technology was changing the face of all manner of consumer products, marine footwear was stagnant. The shoes available to boaters and fishermen were thin-soled moccasin-styles that were hard on the wearer’s feet and only modestly effective on wet surfaces.

    Along the way Rugged Shark went from being a marine shoe line to becoming an outdoor footwear brand. Fishermen and boaters who tried our Atlantic™ shoe styles and Marlin™ shoes fell in love with the performance and comfort of boat shoes that made their feet feel good—all day long!

    Today, Rugged Shark creates and markets footwear which combines cutting edge design with the latest advances in component materials. The brand is sold in national and regional outdoor store chains, such as Bass Pro Shops, as well as smaller independent stores across the nation.
