    Irish Setter Upland Boots...hands down the best I've ever had. Still use them after 10 years in the fields. Trade out insoles every two years. Wash them at the car wash at the end of the season, then saddle soap at home, then rub in mink oil and store them in the closet.

    I wear LL Bean Maine Hunting Shoes, 10", uninsulated.

    I wear them with 2 pair of wool socks.

    They keep my feet dryer and last longer than any leather boot that I have owned.

    For a reasonably priced ($200ish?) upland boot. The Danner Pronghorn has treated me well. Comfortable to walk in all day prairie, mostly waterproof. However, I have pretty much switched full time to my Muck Chore boots. It seems like each year, more and more things in the midwest are wet. Lots of times before you know it, you are in an area of water you weren't expecting- and nothing outperforms the Mucks when that happens.

    Oy...I don't know. Mine ran true. They seem plenty roomy.
    Also, now that I've got a full season on them, I will say the I.S. Elk Tracker 885's are my favorite boots ever. Ultra-comfy. Light. No break-in required. No toe stitching. Good gription but easy on mud pick-up. Easy on/off. Lightly insulated. I seem to go through a pair about every 4-5 seasons, & as of right now, these show no signs that they won't make at least that. The only drawback is that they don't magically make the water less deep.

    I have been very satisfied with Danner boots. I have the “sharp tail,” but I’ve been told the Danner Grouse are really good as well. The Sharptails are the cheaper of the two. Mine have around 6 seasons in them, and no loose stitchings. Hope you find something you like, good luck.

    I don't have the anniversary version but same boots. Chocolate weather tuff leather with green accents, added D rings and not the studs, and a toe cap. I have owned for about 10 years and they look almost new, except for the soles which I am going to have redone this spring.

    Custom fit, the owner of the place even measured my foot in person. Every time I put them on they feel better than being barefoot. They are better waterproofed than any gortex boots I have ever owned and they have no goretex. Just proper construction to keep water out. I chose no insulation.

    Had them resoled and couldn't be happier. Walked 6.47 miles yesterday through grass, mud and some standing water. Feet were dry, comfortable and supported. And after 10-11 years the boots are good as new.

    Whoa, those aren't wallet friendly! A few options have them over $700. If a guy could get 10 seasons, probably worth the price. Great review.
