After moving its operations from Illinois to China, XtraTuf faced criticism over the poor quality of their new boots.
U.S. Senator Mark Begich decried the shift, using the move as an example of why America needs to support local manufacturing. He blamed high corporate taxes for forcing XtraTuf out of the country, resulting in the new “Sort-Of-Tufs.”
Now, the company says they’ve worked the kinks out of the line, and the boots are as good (or better) than ever. To prove it, they say anyone with a faulty pair of boots can return them, no questions asked. The XtraTuf website encourages customers to return the boots to the place of purchase.
