BOOTS - I HAVE A BONE TO PICK,,,

For years I've went with Lacrosse. The last pair I picked up are the Lacrosse Alphaburly Pro 1600g. Had them now for I believe 4 years and this year was the first time I noticed I have a good leak in the right one and a very small leak in the left one. Probably briars poking through the rubber coating I would imagine as I don't notice til I'm over ankle deep. Frustrating because they aren't cheap but I have put a lot of miles on them and the rest of the boot has held up just fine. I have an older pair that I still wear, probably 12+ years old simply because they are comfortable. They too got snagged and started leaking later in their life. None of them have had problems with the soles.

Same here. Lacrosse alpha burleys. A pair will last me about 4-5 years of both deer and Turkey hunting and i'm hard on them. They never leaked at the seams but would eventually develop a crack on the top of the foot where it flexes. But after 4-5 years that's to be expected.

Looks like X-mas come early for me. Just delivered moments ago, and I'm one happy customer!

Lacrosse has a spray on preserver that really keep my hip boots looking brand new and you know how they like to deteriorate.

I had the same problem with the mucks. I bought a pair of Thorogood 800g on camofire. I would highly recommend them, rugged, comfortable and reasonably priced on sale.

My wife just bought a pair of Steady Yeti. Very insulated, ice grip and appear well made. She just got them so I have no idea how they hold up. Great reviews though.

The bad reviews for Mucks come from the models where there is foam attached to rhe rubber. I stick with the Chore model to avoid the foam.

Muck boots aren’t worth the money. They don’t hold up and they fit like trash. Lacrosse aeroheads or any other EVA foam molded boot is the way to go. More durable, much lighter, and way more comfortable.
