RedHead Bone-Dry Big Horn 9'' Insulated Waterproof Hunting Boots for Men
A little snug in the toes.
I wear the 14W size and only have one gripe. The toes feel claustrophobic while wearing my Rocky insulated socks. The boot is warm and has saved me a twisted ankle twice. Last saturday I bowhunted from a semi-dry creekbed on a farm. My feet never got wet even during the rainstorm that day. I've worn them on 20+ hunts and usually a few hours after the hunt. I haven't noticed any defect in craftsmanship like the other reviewer noticed. Maybe a bad batch of sealant on his boots?
I like the quick lace hooks, they're nylon-ish and don't cut the laces like metal hooks do. On the back of the boot above your heel where it naturally binds they have included a section of soft material so your heel doesn't get pinched up. Alot of thought went into this boot. From the floor up you have about 8-9 inches of waterproof protection from the solid piece tongue design. They also don't hurt my feet. Most boots are too flat for my arch.

Best Boots Owned
These boots are the best boots I've ever owned by far. I like the fact that they are full camo, so a deer won't spot them. I hunt in 10 degrees or below weather, but with just one pair of wool socks, my feet were warm and toasty. The boot lacers are great because they aren't metal and won't rip the laces. The laces are very long, too, so you won't have trouble tying them. There is a flexible area in the back where the boots bend, so they aren't stiff in the area. These boots offer great arch support also. I pheasant hunted with them all day and my feet didn't get sore, or hot, at all. I have no clue what the other guy said about the black toe cap coming off. Mine has stayed on through many thorns and bushes. They are very good in consideration to being waterproof. My feet haven't gotten wet in them yet, even though I have crossed many shallow creeks. They worked so well that I was able to stay in my stand in 15 degree, windy, weather one morning until I shot and 8 point buck. They are very good boots and I highly recommend them.

redhead bone dry whitetail boots for men
I purchased these boots on a sunday and within 5 days of wearing them the black around the toe area began to peal away causing water to get on my foot.

Very nice boots
I just purchased these boots after freezing my toes off while wearing uninsulated boots and 3 pairs of socks. I have only wore these 4 times but every time I did they kept my feet nice and warm with only one pair of socks. I read a lot of reviews about the souls seperating but it's too early for me to tell. I have been rough on them every time I've wore them I've been threw mud up and down hill sides threw water and so far they are excellent. Only problem is I think they run a little small I wear size 11 w but went ahead and bought 12w and I'm glad I did.
