Rubber boots

Postby supr87gt » Thu Nov 15, 2012 12:20 pm

Alright guys, Im in the market for a new pair of insulated rubber boots. I am coming off of a set of the Cabela's comfort-trac's. For the price, they work well. They always kept my feet warm and dry. The problem I have with them, is they dont last. Both boots cracked around my achilles. Anyone have any input on a warm boot that lasts? Any experience with Under Armour, Drake, Muck, or Irish Setter boots? It gets cold here in Central, Illinois too so warmth is definately a factor.

I have had a pair of Boggs Classic 1000gr for a while now, no complaints, very warm, really like the neoprene boots.

Of its over 40 and I wear my Muck Boots I need to put odorless deodorant on my feet to keep them from sweating buckets. However they are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn and there have been many (due to my job)

Muck Woody Max are much lighter and more comfortable the the Cabela's mentioned. They are warm and will last you for many years.

Muck boots, I love them. comfortable, warm, durable, and they are light! I wear mine at work when its nasty. (I work at a cattle ranch) and they are comfortable enough to wear all day long, after I started wearing mine at work my boss tossed his Lacrosses and picked up some much boots.

Muck boots are definitely the best cold weather rubber boot.

Muck is the way to go, had many of the other brands and mucks are really comfortable

I like my mucks and if you are doing anything other than sitting, your feet are sweating.

After 4 years, they are starting to look pretty rough but thats how I treat them. I knicked my mucks with an ice auger with the trottle pinned the first time I wore them. After I picked the thinsulate out of my big toe and shoe-gooed them, they were good to go.

I had a pair of cabela rubbers do the same thing you said after one season. You should not have that problem with mucks.

I have a pair of mucks, I love them but I do have one negative about them and it's a big one. Traction, make sure you get ones that have better traction than the stupid lines.

Been really happy with my pair of Muck boots so far, have alot of friends who also wear them. Really comfortable just remember to buy them loose.

I got the Muck boots woody sport addition at Basspro. They have great traction on the bottom, their really comfortable and they breath really well too. Only thing i will add is be careful to remember you're not wearing waiters (because they fit just like them, at least mine do). I walked into a pond and kept going having forgot this and by the time i realized it at my knees, I damn near lost em'. lol

Muck vs Irish Setter is like comparing a metal folding chair to your favorite lazy boy.

Mucks are box like, designed to fit through whole sizes only and conform to the largest number of foot 'types'. Put on a muck (of any variety) and then put on the Irish Setter Rutmaster 800gr.

The flexibility is unmatched as is the fit. Like a glove- I put on my thick hunting socks and there was just enough air pocket to know the cold won't come straight it, but around the foot and ankle it was just tight enough to let you know you have stability, traction and that it won't slip off in any mud.

Never going back to anything else... except when its warm and I'll bust out my LL Bean, 10" uninsulated bean boots... cant beat the ability to feel exactly whats under foot when you are stalking around.

The neoprene boggs were great but I got them before they added the rubber boot portion and all the fabric came loose so when I replaced them I got a pair of the Irish setter rutmasters. I'm hooked Irish setters from now on!!!! :thumbsup:
