LL Bean (there's on in Marlton) has plenty of different models of duck boots (they call them "Maine Hunting Shoes") all the way up to 16". They're durable, breathe more than rubber wellies and have laces that help keep them on your feet. I usually call my order in when I buy them and have lace hooks put in instead of eyelets for like $1.50 extra. They're made in Maine, so that's a bonus. The only downside is they aren't easy on/off.Looking for wellies (calf-high 'farm' boots), galoshes (slip over the footwear you wear as an outer protective cover), or something like duckboots (waterproof boots designed for mud/marsh/wet)?
If you don't intend on using in snow or mud, what are you thinking you would wear them for? If you're thinking about a pair for the infrequent holy ___ moments, I would recommend getting a pair of middle-of-the-road waders with integrated boots. Nothing can ruin a day faster than slipping in the muck and getting a wet rear or sinking in over the tops on what seemed like shallow water/muck.Anyone have any recommendations for rubber boots? I don't have a pair and should keep one in my rig. I don't plan on any snow usage or heavy muds. General purpose I suppose around the western states, I don't know if I should go cheap or quality.
