    I like my knee boots.... But the LaCrosse that I have now leak where the neoprene meets the boot rubber..... Gave $120 for them and now they are $160 a pair....

    Just about every brand is made in China so I have zero brand loyalty....


    Found a nice fitting pair at Walmart for $44 out the door so to hell with the over priced legacy American brands that moved their manufacturing to China!

    You should have picked up a $5 tube of shoe goo to keep those $44 boots waterproof and fixed your old pair.

    I bet I've used $20 worth trying to stop leaks in the expensive pair!! The new boots feel great and with 400 grams of thinsulate they should be plenty warm for my usage.

    I HATE neoprene on knee boots. I wear the all rubber LaCrosse.

    It does seem to be a weak point. I liked the boots but hate wet feet while launching the boat!

    Walmart knee boots just don’t keep the sheep in place as good as Lacrosse does.

    I like my muds.
    Generic muck boots

    Has anyone else seen the ads for TideWe waders? Cheap as heck. They disposable or what?

    I need a tall boot. The LaCrosse Alphaburly is the only one I’ve found.

    My Cabela’s 1200 Comfortrac have lasted about 20 years (on sale $109.00) & still are going strong, BUT I probably only wear them 5-10 times a year. And I’m not hard on them. I dry ‘em then coat them w/Amour All at the end of the season.
