    That's a broad question!

    You'll need to elaborate on your requirements. Waterproof? Lightweight? Insulated? Etc. , Etc., Etc....

    you are going to get more answers than you want. whatever keeps your feet dry during wet conditions and another pair that are breathable in dry conditions. besides that, a boot that is comfortable.

    So, you've had at least one snake hit your boot and it didn't penetrate? :biggrin:

    I was surrounded by approximately 38 snakes, could of been as many as 400 though, I fought off most of them armed with only my good looks, charm and a pocket knife. I know out of all of the snakes approximately 23 bit me on the boots, I’m still here to this day so this is why I have no complaints.

    I don’t like to tell that story as I like to keep my heroics to myself and some would even have the audacity to argue it was a lie. I however know the truth.

    Luckily Iv only ever seen harmless ones in FL. Used to see a lot of Adders in England but only in the summer.

    no experience with snake boots. I don't have any deadly snakes in my area. besides i'll go out of my way to kill any snake before it has a chance to bite me. I hate those things.
