I am notoriously hard on boots. More times than not, they end up sitting on the front porch for months at a time if not year around and I have worn out multiple pairs of snake boots in less than one calendar year due to miles and miles of hard scouting, turkey hunting, consecutive days of submersion in swamps and dry rotting on the front porch.

I recently got a pair of these Cabelas boots: http://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabelas-G...ch-All+Products

I generally stay away from footwear made by a company that does not specialize in footwear, but these had really good reviews and I thought moving away from leather might be a good idea. I was also looking for a pair of snake boots that are Gore Tex lined. Even though I am not a fan of Gore Tex because of its lack of breathability, the amount of time my feet spend in 4 to inches of water around the swamps if West TN and North MS seems to necessitate it. I considered dropping the money on Danner's, but watched a partner of mine go through the process of returning his Danner's 4 times due to leaking within a few weeks of use of each pair.

Besides a couple of strolls walking the dogs to break these boots in, they have been out 3 times so far and exposed to water each time. Yesterday, I had them out rabbit hunting on the Hatchie River where we walked miles and miles with our feet submerged in the endless sloughs, kicking up briars as tough as steel.

So far, so good.

I bought a pair of Cabelas Whitetail Extreme boots with 600 grams of thinsulate. I have been satisfied with them, Cabelas seems to make a pretty good boot.

I'm a pretty lean guy, so I have found the zippered boots to fit too loose and therefore not provide enough ankle support. If you're of a thicker build, they may work just fine, though. -No doubt that they are easier to take off.

the zip up snake boots from Bass Pro are great boots also. Never tried the Cabelas but they look good

Another vote for these boots! HAd them for the past 2 seasons and never had wet feet, they are comfortable for hiking/scouting/stalking and seem to hold up well.

Downside is getting them on and off, so looking at the full zipper ones for replacements.

I ordered these boots and got them in last Thursday. I took them out of the box on Friday and walked 6.5 miles in the mountains in them. Obviously that was a bad idea, but my feet werent mangled. I had a blister, but they were brand new boots so that's to be expected for me.

When they get broke in - I feel like they will be awesome.

Didn't test the water-proofness.
