I have flat feet so I'm hoping there are some options out there with arc support. Should I go neoprene or rubber, or a combination of? How well does neoprene hold up in the thorns? Also wanting one that will be easy to put on and off. Brands with warranties vs none. How insulated should I go for wisconsin weather? Thanks.
Knee high boot recommendations
Tried a couple of mucks. The same issue with all of them for me. They just dont fit right. Heel slips, or moves when walking. Even if they are a size small and tight. Was a bad idea anyway. As I know they are not durable! The neoprene will get torn up and full of holes in the bush. Many friends have had it happen over and over. One buys 2 pairs a year because of it. But he loves the fit so much he just keeps doing it. Duct tapes and shoe goo's them until about to fall off.
Earlier this fall looked again. Dunhmas has a great selection. Finally found a pair that fit great. Was excited by these new Frog Toggs. That lasted one whole day! Seems leaked where the rubber meets the neoprene. Half mile into a cranberry/buck brush marsh, and they were done. Brush tore a big hole in the neoprene.
Neoprene just wont cut it in the tag alder swamps, blow downs, and cranberry/buckbrush marshes.
So it's back to the drawing board again. Had luck with Burly boots in the past. But they always crack up front. Like what I see in Boggs, but everything that is full rubber seems to be insulated. Dont like that idea. May try the Lacrosse Premiums, but they have a really terrible tread. For now just have to keep the bear grease or snow seal handy. Using my leathers instead. Feet may get wet at times, but at least they are durable!
