    Default Boots

    What is the best overall knee high boots (not too warm) to use for running dogs in the southeast where we are predominatley warm. I've been through 2 pairs of Lacrosse knee highs and they dry rot very quickly. I use watershoes for wet grass but need the boots for water work for hunt tests.

    Muck boots are all I use and it is always warm in Florida. They hold up to year round water and sunlight (carry them too often in the back of the truck) very well. I am on my second pair in 6 years and the first one just got nasty from the use I put it through (cut the grass in them too many times and they got stained and filled with dirt and grass). They are still in good shape otherwise, but I just got tired of wearing dirty nasty boots so I got another pair.

    Which ones do you recommend?
    I have the mucksters for regular dog training. Need higher boots for hunt test water series.

    I have the Muck Masters. I believe they are the highest. They also have great tread. They're very warm and durable.

    Still waiting to see a rice farmer in anything but La Crosse.
    If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

    (And to see just how confused I really am, join us in my online blind at: Rick's 2012-2013 season log)

    You must be storing your LaCrosse on top of a stack of car batteries or something ! I just replaced a pair I've had for about 15 years mainly because the tread was worn smooth.

    Maybe a reagional thing but I don't see anyone around here in anything but LaCrosse.

    Nope, they just cracked around the seams where the boot bends naturally to the flexing of the leg/foot. If you bought yours 15 years ago think about that. Just about everything made nowadays is junk
