I just bought my second pair of rattlers...It took me five years to wear out the first pair.
I wear mine year round,deer and turkey hunting,scouting,and working on food plots and roads on the property...I do a ot of walking and these boots are great for what I do,while not having to worry about getting snake bit!
The best all around boot out there,and at A good price too!

I was, key word - was -, sold on the Redhead Bayou boot, until I needed to replace them, $99.00 is a fair price won't pay much more, the Bayou went up to $140.00 & the Rocky's came on sell, I know Rocky name brand so for $99.00 I'll give them a try, so far the only thing I can find is I wish they had a thicker boot lace, the ones it comes with are pretty thin but if thats the only problem I can deal with that, ordered my regular size, fit great out of the box not to stiff, they are warranted for a year so if any problems I know Rocky will make it good, great boot

comfortable but short lifespan
Bought my second pair of Rocky sidezip snakeboots. Boots are very comfortable, but you are lucky to get more than one season out of them before the soles seperate from boots. I have purchased many pair s of Rocky boots and this seems to be a recurring problem. their quality control seems to be very poor.If you want the most comfortable hunting boot, buy Rocky. Dont expect them to last very long. All my huntin buddies always agree with this.

Best Snake Boot Period
I am an avid Hunter and spend entire days dog hunting in FL, GA and SC. I run miles in these boots and let me tell you I have been wearing these boots for 8 years and I am only on my second pair. On top of that I have had two bites that I know of (because I am sure running through palmettos and thick grass for hours on end there have been more). One was a cotton mouth and the other was a diamondback. Neither made it through and after bite one I will never go dog hunting or even hiking without snake boots. The remote areas I hunt in require you to wear foot protection and these work! Now for the common questions. I was quite irritated with my first pair not being waterproof. Dew on grass even got my feet wet. I exchanged the boots and the second pair was outstanding. Since then I have put 6 years of hunting on this pair no leaks at all for the first year but then they started leaking again. 6 bucks at bass pro for silicone waterproofing spray fixed that. I can literally walk a creek for 10 mins and I have not even had damp socks. The boots need to be broken in just like any other pair for max comfort. You cant dog hunt out of the box but just walking is fine. I highly recommend these boots if you take care of them they will last and last.
