The Original Muck Boot Company® MuckMaster™ 13'' Waterproof Commercial Grade Boots for Men or Ladies
Best boots ever!!!! 10 Thumbs up!!1
I have been an avid duck hunter for over twenty years (I am 37), and I have tried more boots than I can count. I own Rocky, Redhead, Lacrosse, Irish Setter, and Danner boots......none of these come close to matching the quality and ease of use of the Muck boots! This is a real, down-on-the-farm, no bull rating of the most awesome pair of boots I have ever owned!
These boots fit like your favorite pair of sneakers, yet make you feel like you are wearing tanks on your feet...they go through anything and everything. And, like my favorite pair of neoprene chest waders, they roll down...because the uppers are made of neoprene, with a tough rubber shin guard. They are SO easy to put on and take off, you WILL be spoiled by these boots. And they fit so snug. They are super easy to keep clean, and dont slip on ice!!!! Wow!!! It took true outdoorsmen to create these boots. Been there done that.
Two days ago, the morning temp was a balmy 7 degrees, and the river was frozen 3 ft out from the bank. Riding down the river at 40 mph in those temps will chill through every other pair of boots i own......but not these bad boys!! My feet were warmer than they have EVER been in these frigid hunting conditions. The Muckmasters did not get stiff, even though there was frozen water all over the rubber and neoprene uppers. You roll down the uppers, tuck in your pants, and then roll up the uppers over your pants....simple. Airtight, and the uppers conform to your calf because they're not stiff rubber. The advantage of neoprene. I never felt the ice water through these boots. It was like having an automatic thermostat in the boots. No chill at all!! No leaks, and no drafts.
I dont normally write reviews about the items I purchase, but I cannot NOT say anything about these boots. I paid $99 for this pair, and would gladly pay twice that in the future. Absolutely the greatest pair of boots you can buy. Period. These are awesome!
To the Muck Boot Company: You have outdone yourself with these Muckmaster boots. You have now gained an eternally dedicated and faithful new customer. What you have done is given us the footwear answer we have been looking for since our grandfathers taped their feet to stay warm. Kudos to you and your R&D team, you hit a grand slam with these. I look forward to receiving the two pairs I ordered for my wife and son. Thank you so very much for a job well done.

I believe that the "M" in Muck Boot stands for "Magic". After walking for hours, when my legs should be tired, I find that I still have an amazing amount of energy left to climb a steep hill to get back to the car, They are very comfortable and warm. I have high insteps and arches and these boots slide on and off easier than any other brand I have tried, even with 2 pair of socks. The traction on / in soft surfaces like dirt, mud, clay, loose gravel or stones and even wet leaves uphill and down hill is amazing. They even do well on rough, uneven rocks. On smooth, hard surfaces they don't do so well. A walking stick is definitely in order when walking on wet rocks or smooth ice. I find it easy to get used to having great traction and then forgetting to be careful on slippery surfaces - a walking stick helps prevent sudden surprises when my feet go out from under me. I have worn them in icy water when the overnight low has been in the teens and the high in the mid 20's, with 2 pair of boot socks my feet were warm. Overall, I love the MuckMaster boots!

Do Not keep feet warm
I don't know what the other reviews are about but I live in PA and wore them in October approximately 35 degrees and my feet froze. Other than that they are great but don't expect them to keep your feet warm. I was very disappointed in that.
