Thread: Boots

  1. #1

    Default Boots

    Whats everyone wearing for boots while stomping across the prairies? I am looking for a waterproof, long lasting, and most important, comfortable boot.

    May have to be a little more specific on your question—
    There is no one boot that will fit all occasions—
    I know I have pairs from—browing—danner— meindle— and rocky—and more than one style of some brands-
    But one of the reasons is I hunt just about every day of the season until Dec. at least so temps. vary a great —I also almost never wear the same pair two days in a row to let them dry-

    If I could only pick one pair or style however it would be :
    Danner Pronghorn or sharpetail—or meindle—JMO

    The cabellas branded boots have a lifetime guarantee against defects. Stitching is the first thing that goes bad for me. I've had a pair of there mendel ultralights for a couple of years. They are comfortable and give pretty good support.

    I wear Maine Hunting shoes. I have two pair, one is the original from LL Bean and the other is a Lacross knock-off. These boots have rubber bottoms and leather uppers.

    I have replaced the original orthotic inserts with custom inserts for my plantar fasciitis.

    With these boots, I can walk many miles each day and keep my feet reasonably dry.

    Like david0311 said, I keep two pair so that I do not wear the same boots each day.

    I do not understand why but these boots last longer than any leather boot I have ever owned.

    I second the Danner Pronghorn, I have the model with 400g of insulation. I picked mine up for $180 and they're still in good shape going into season three.

    I like Irish Setter boots as they seem to fit me better. Currently have a pair of their Havoc Upland boots. Extremely comfortable. Irish Setter has come out with a new boot called the Ravine that I'd like to try on.

    Danners. I like mine as uninsulated, my feet dont get very cold. However, if needed a pair of good wool socks will be enough and I can go to about 20 degrees with that setup.

    Cold stuff, gotta go with my Rockys with 1000 gram. But for heavens sakes, dont wear more than one light pair of socks with them.

    My first pair of Danner Pronghorns were great, except the toe wore through the leather after miles of busting through CRP sections. I got the next generation of Pronghorn with the rubber toe caps, the toe held up and the boots look fine after a few years, but they're no longer waterproof and never were as comfortable as the originals. Danner has since changed them back to more of the original, but I doubt I buy another pair.

    I wear a pair of USA made Danners, forget the model, they're all leather with the airbob sole. They're comfortable and dry.

    Next production boots I buy will be the Meindl Ultralights.

    Have a gift certificate for some Russell Mocasins, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    For dry conditions, I just as soon wear my wedge sole moc Toe Thorogood workboots. The most comfortable shoes I own.

    Last year I bought a pair of Kenetrek boots. They did have a little bit of a break in period, but they are now by far the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. Another down fall is the price, but I am hoping that they last many seasons.
