LaCrosse® AlphaBurly Pro 18'' Waterproof Hunting Boots for Men
Very comfortable rubber boot
I do a lot of hunting from whitetail in the hills of SE Ohio to whitetail and hogs in the swamp low country of South Carolina. I have already put over 40 long days of scouting and hunting in these boots this season. Even walked the dog in the snow a couple times. I purchased these boots to replace my old LaCrosse AlphaBurly's and am very pleased with the new design. I got the 1000 gram insulation and were perfect temperature with the change in sock liners from 8F to 70F.
I was worried about the exposed neoprene near the top would catch on thorns and briars but not a tear so far and I have hiked them thru plenty. The problem with the old AlphaBurly's was the cracking in rubber on the shin where the upper meets the lower which the new design looks to prevent. Most people I know that ever had a problem with the Allphas experienced this problem.
I did add Dr Shoals gel sport insoles on top of the provided insole and the comfort level is top notch. The aggressive sole held up in mud, snow, slop, flooded timber, and steep terrain without a slip.
People complained about the rubber smell... air them out, spray them down and the smell goes right away. Others complained about them not fitting right? Go to a store that carries them and bring the socks you hunt in and try them on and walk around the store before you buy; no problems with the fit.
I liked mine so much my wife got a pair and she loves them. I could not be happier with my boots and the new design; good job LaCrosse!

These are probably some of the best boots I have ever bought. They fit and wear very well. I have walked many a mile in the Alabama woods and swamps where I hunt, and have 0 complaints about these boots, except one. If the temp drops below freezing, I wear something else. These are the coldest boots I have ever worn. Once the rubber gets that cold, no sock or liner or even setting them on fire, will warm them up. Spring Turkey, and early fall deer season and the boots perform 100 %, but in late December and into January, when morning temps can and do dip below freezing, I felt like I would lose some toes I got so cold...

My third pair of lacrosse boots. They are all comfortable and lightweight. When wearing them I feel like I am wearing crocs. They are very durable and I don't intend to stray away from this name brand soon.

So far so good
This is my fifth pair of Alphaburly Lacrosse boots. The styling is noticeably different on this new pair. They are very lightweight and comfortable. However, compared to the older style, they are a bit large fitting so be careful when ordering online about size. Overall, they are a great product so far.
