I am again in the market for some new boots. The Bean Boots just don't hold up for me more than about 10-12 months. At their price, I could buy a pair of better and more expensive boots to last several years.
I need the following:
Waterproof
Comfortable
6-8 inches high
Possibile insulated
Good for winter or summer

I live in South GA and does not get real cold, but several months of 20-40 degree weather (lows).

Russell boots are the best! Expensive but worth every penny.

I always have had good luck with Danner boots. In Oklahoma we have similar weather and need something to keep warm but not too hot. I love my pronghorns.

I also have always had very good luck with Danner. I have a couple of different pairs, but love my non insulated Sharptails the best.

Does anyone have the Double Moccasin Zyphyr and did you add height? I really prefer and 12-13" boot.

Love my Russells!! Between my wife and I we have 5 pairs. 1 south 40, 1 feather weight birdshooter, 1 sportingclays chucka, 2 african priemer chuckas. Would not trade for any other boot. You pay for them and have to wait a bit to have them made, but worth it for a boot that will last. My wife decribes her feather weights as they are as comfortable as stocking feet. I keep them well cared for and in 4 seasons of pheasant and grouse hunting and training have had no issues and no leaks. Call Lefty or Doug. You wont be disappointed. Also, gift cert. make great gifts.

I like Irish Setter made by redwing. Light weight and just bought my second pair. First pair lasted 8 years.

Interesting. My Bean Maine Hunting Shoes have lasted me over 15 years. I'd look at Muck and see if anything they have fits your requirements. I have the Wetland 16 inch and the Edge Water shoe (lowtop) and love both. They both fit all of your listed traits except the 6-8 inch height. The may have something in that range.

I have started using Danner pronghorns, uninsulated for spring, summer and fall. They can't crack.

I tried Bean boots and Schnee boots, they both would crack after about a year. You can get both types resoled for about half price but it seems like there's always a pair that needs sent back.

Russells or Danners are great. I really like my Danner sierras.

Tom: My Russell's are great but if you are talking about rubber bottom boots for North FL/South GA that also do well in somewhere like Chinook, MT, my boy's and I like Schnee's. Take a look at their on-line catalog and I will give you a hard copy when you return. Mike

White's are my favorite. They fit like a glove and wear better than any other boot I've owned. They are expensive, but last much longer than any of the Danner's, Lacrosse, Beans, Browning's or Rocky's I've owned. They are heavy boots compared to some of the others.

Three pair of Russell boots, one with over 10 years. Expensive but long lasting and can be resoled if necessary by Russell for a reasonable price.
