A Review of Top Hunting Boots - Nov 30, 2017

Hunting Boot Reviews - Protection and Comfort

You've been there before. Out in the field, the mud or swampy ground or even snow sucking up at every step. Cold or moisture threatening the comfort of your feet. The boot you wear just might be the single most important piece of gear you take with you into the field. Your feet are your wheels. Keep the tread on them in great shape.

What We Look For In a Solid Hunting Boot

Our list of top requirements includes the following:

  • Waterproof or highly water resistant
  • Durable with a solid leather or synthetic leather upper
  • Great ankle support
  • Wide sole for stability
  • Comfort both standing and walking
  • Good price for the value

Check out the video to get a sense of what you should be looking for in a great boot:

Our Favorite Boot for the Price Is The Rocky Men's FQ0008729 Hiking Boot

We've put together a look at some of the better rated hunting boots out there and while we feel they are all a solid choice, our pick would be the Rocky listed below. They are lauded for their combination of waterproofness and comfort. The price is right when you look at alternatives and their durability is excellent.

If we had to pick a second choice, it would likely be the LaCrosse below as it is a great quality boot as well. A little bit pricier but an all around great piece of footwear for rough terrain and damp conditions.

If you're looking for new boots to take you into the rough terrain of the field, one of the choices below will likley fit your specific needs well.

Awesome Boots By:
These boots so far are fantastic. Very warm for the Iowa fall so far. Size was perfect and it gives a lot of support. I will say that at first it wasn't comfortable because it is tight around the calves and seemed very stiff but after about 3 times of fairly heavy use, the boots really loosened up and are a lot more comfortable but still as warm. So far I've sat in a tree stand for 3 hours in rain/ice mixture with 25 mph winds and my feet were perfectly warm with out any other heat. Much colder weather and I will probably have to have another source of heat though.
Good Boots! By:
I have fat feet (4E) so I order big. These are comfortable but a little tight for "wide". But, they are Rocky's so I am ready for hunting season!
The boots seem good. By:
My husband has not worn the boots yet. But I will be back to give a review. The boots seem good.
Excellent well made hunting boot By:
Excellent well made hunting boot. I wear a 14 2E and it fit perfectly. Very comfortable. Had a pair of Rocky hunting boots for 13 years prior to this pair. Finally wore them out. Looking forward to this years hunting season and wearing a good pair of boots!

House Slippers for the Field :o) By:
Needed new boots for bird hunting and wanted something comfortable so i thought i'd give these a try. Placed my order and got them in a couple of days. I have feet like Fred Flinstone so I have to buy W-I-D-E shoes and these things fit perfectly. They feel as good as my Rockport work shoes and have the added benefit of being waterproof. Can't argue with that, right? Anyway, slipped my feet in them, tightened up the laces and set out to test these babies for a bit. The more I wear them the better they feel. I've got other Rocky hunting boots but these are hands down the best wearing boots I've ever owned. I can see many comfortable days of hunting ahead. Just the right amount of insulation without being overly bulky like my 800 gram deer hunting boots. I can see myself wearing these boots on a very regular basis, maybe even converting them to daily wear...time will tell. My only concern is the leather being so dang soft. Time will tell as far as durability is concerned but I'm pretty confident if there's an issue, Rocky will make it right.

Good quality and price By:
Fit OK - big feet are always hard to get the best fit. Wore in snow hunting for 3 days and they stayed dry. Metal gussets versus the web, which is great - every shoe I have had with the web gussets end up breaking through. Overall a good boot value.
perfect ankle support and comfortable By:
Boots are light weight, perfect ankle support and comfortable.
Five Stars By:
i like the fit on my feet 10 to 12 hours a day at work
Five Stars By:
Perfect boot for flat land hunting. Light weight flexible boot that is very waterproof.
Great boot By:
I looked everywhere for a size 15 camo boot for my son. This company provided exactly that with quick shipping and great seller communication. These boots are lightweight and great for hunting in the rocky, steep, mountainous regions of southeastern Oklahoma. The grip on these is excellent and they are comfortable.
Five Stars By:
love these, awesome boot. Danner never fails to impress
