Excellent Cold Water Work Boot,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Original MuckBoots Adult Wetland Boot (Apparel)
I was tired of having to buy a pair of cheap rubber work boots every year and decided to actually shop for what I truly needed and spend the money necessary to obtain it.
My boots are used mostly for launching and working in my boat. Our saltwater temperature this time of year is about 43 degrees with the air temp a bit cooler. With my old boots even with good socks and heater pads I would still have half frozen toes.
Last Saturday I spent 4 hours rebuilting my boat trailer in 33 degree weather with snow and rain without any cold feet issues.
While the boots are insulated I believe their superior construction and materials really make them worth the additional cost.
The boot tops are made of a material similar to neoprene waders with the opening designed to close in around the leg.
This is very nice on those occasions when you might step into deep water for a moment. It won't stop continuous soaking, but does inhibit water from splashes and brief dunkings from entering.
Unlike many rubber boots these actually fit and wear like regular shoes. My feet feel supported without any sore arches at the end of the day. Mine felt big when I first put them on, but with the proper socks (medium weight wool) they settled right in.
