I have several pairs of boots and like each of them for different things. I have some high sanke boots, by Rocky, that I've had for many years. They are very comfortable and comforting when I'm hunting the snake infested cliffs here in Southern Illinois. I have a pair of Danner boots that are light but very sturdy that I wear a lot in the spring and early fall.
I also have a pair of LaCrosse rubber boots that are great in the snow and goose pits and another pair that are well insulated for deer hunting.
Each of them have a place and work very well for what they were intended.
Lastly, I have an old pair of Nike boots that my son gave me many years ago that I wear around our place when I'm mowing or doing work in the trees and just about anything else. They are very well broken-in (Doris says worn out) but as long as they stay together, I'm keeping them.
