I had some rubber boots before this, but they were quite heavy, lacked support and hard to get on and off. This boot is a little tough to get on, but part of that is because of the narrow ankle in the boot, to give it support as you walk. It is a lot lighter than many rubber boots, a pretty good arch and excellent winter tread. I have not been out in really cold weather, so hard to evaluate the insulating properties of the boot.....but even with snow and temps in the 20s, the boot was pretty comfortable. To quote the title of an old song: "These Boots Are Made for Walkin!"

I have never been more satisfied with a pair of hunting boots. These boots are ready for the woods right out of the box ... no break-in period necessary. The minute I put my feet into these boots, I felt like I was walking around in a pair of expensive new running shoes. The fit is perfect and durability is top-notch. After 2 weeks of turkey and mushroom hunting, my feet stayed dry and comfortable the entire time.
The comfort provided by the AeroForm design is superior to any other hunting boot I have ever owned or tried. To say these boots were constructed with comfort in mind would be an understatement. Their level of durability and protection far surpass what I would hope for in an excellent hunting boot. The Armor Weld seal provides an extremely durable, waterproof seam between the neoprene inner-boot and the tough, yet comfortable and flexible, polyurethane exterior. After walking up and down hills all day in these boots, my legs and feet felt great and I was ready for more. This boot definitely redefines the traditional ankle-fit rubber boot category that I am accustomed to.
