How are the soles of your muck boots holding up? The soles of the Bogs muck boots I have wore out quickly.
Well, two weeks of almost daily wear in +90º F and humid weather, I rather like them. Soles seem to be wearing well but I'm really impressed with the fact that they breathe and unless I'm in the direct sun they're quite comfortable. No more foot sweat than a pair of athletic shoes. More expensive than the ones Anne opened the thread with (about $159, with tax) but they seem to be made of the same breathable material with a wicking liner. I have a fused 1st phalangeal joint in my right foot, that seems to be the only hindrance to full comfort but it's not the end of the world. I expect to get quite a few years out of them.
I just ran into a kid at the local store who was recovering from a copperhead bite. He said he took 8 doses of antivenom at $8,000 a pop, plus the LifeFlite, ER, transfusion, etc., said the total tab was a couple of hundred thousand. The most expensive boots are cheap insurance if you're mucking around rocks, ditches, and brush.
