Are they worth the money or all hype? I pretty much want them for sloshing around in the mud and snow during the winter time. I would also be using them to cross about a 6" deep creek?

What do the experts say??

My favorite is xtra Tough boots. I can get about a year and a half out of them at work. That's probably 200+ days a year welding, burning, dragging the toes on concrete, and snagging them on rebar. Get the insulated boots. Not much insulation, but it helps moisture management.

Happy with mine. Warm, comfortable, seem to last.

Very much worth the money in my opinion.

Are they that much better than the similar white fishing boots I keep seeing? Those are about a fifth the price.

Skip the Mucks and get the Bogs. The Mucks have an inherent problem of the sole falling off.

I have worn three pairs almost daily for the last 5-6 years and have never seen that happen.


I live mine. They last a long time, and are comfy.

I have a pair it really was a impulse buy went in the store looking to spend 50-100 bucks on a set of boots came out with a 250 dollar pair. They where the only thing I found that I liked and did what I wanted. I only wear them a handful of times a year but so far no complaints.

I have a pair of non-steel toe mucks. They are fine, easy on and off. Can be worn inside pant or outside. They can even be worn folded down.

My only issue is that they do not have much arch support.

I like mine. I've thrown away a lot of cheap rubber boots over the years and these will stay with me until they croak.

I balked at the price too.

I love mine and I use the shit out of them.

The ones I have used, steeltoe or not, have worked well for me. They fit snugly and move around easily due to being neoprene dipped in rubber. They have good traction as well. My gripe is they moved manufacturing to China.

I like Lacrosse Burlys. Been wearing them for years. Last pair of Mucks I saw were made in China.
