Who makes the best hunting boots? Rubber and non-rubber.

Rubber- Muck Woody Max by a landslide

Leather- Danner with many models to choose from all are great comfortable boots.

I would not put Rocky in that list any more. They just do not seem to hold up like they used to.

Anyone used any Schnee's boots before?

I've been reading the reviews on Cabella's .. com

Seems open and honest, and they don't remove the bad reviews.

I agree. I had a pair of Rockys where the tread dry rotted and fell apart after 6 or 7 years. Now I wasn't too upset because they were years old, but the rest of the boot was still in good shape. So I replaced them with another pair of Rockys and those fell apart in the 3rd season.

I now have a pair of Wolverines that are in their 2nd season so I will see how well they hold up.

my favorite pair of rockys fell apart after a 4 or 5 years of hunting use too (the sole), but they were one of the most comfortable pairs of boots id ever worn. I wear danners now but next time i need boots id look at rockys again, for the price and the comfort ill overlook the shorter life span or try getting them resoled.

Default I won't tell you

The manufacturer find out they're the best, and no one will find a price under $500.

I bought ROCKYS for years and they just dont seem to hold up for too long (couple years) but they are priced right. This year I bought a pair of Cabellas brand boots cause I could get them in a 4 E width, very comfy from day one and now with snow on the ground I wear them everyday, so far happy as a pig in you know what!
