Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Original MuckBoots Daily Garden Shoe (Apparel)
I love these Muckboots shoes. Even though my feet get hot if I spend too much time in them (anything other than barefoot in Houston during May through October and my feet get hot! LOL), I love the fact that my feet are completely protected; not only from the sun, but from any fire ants that I may disturb. Also, the Asian Tiger mosquitoes can't get to the heels or the tops of my feet, as they can when I wear Sloggers (I always wear long cotton gauze pants to keep the skeeters off my legs when I plan on being outside for more than 10 minutes).
We recently had a major downpour (storm) that dumped almost 10" of rain within about 18 hours and major sections of our back yard turned into a bit of a swamp (until the rain could percolate down into the soil). I was able to walk around the yard in my Muckboots without fear of being bitten by floating fire ants, and my feet stayed completely dry.
I had originally purchased the size 9, which fit my 9˝ sized feet, but I wanted a bit more room to allow my feet to breathe, so I returned them for the size 10. I'm seriously contemplating purchasing another pair so that I have a pair to wear while another pair is being deodorized and drying out.

LOL Nah... Houston. Some years are worse than others. We'd been in drought for a couple of years (after I wrote the review). But I do, now, have three pairs. When I'm working outside in the heat and humidity during the summer, I sweat a lot. Ergo, my feet tend to get drenched. It's great to have extra pairs of dry Muckboots (or shoes) to change into when I come into the house to take a break or get a cold drink!
