Squeaky 135 Posted September 23, 2021 Report Share Posted September 23, 2021 Hi Guys: I am overwhelmed by the number and kinds of boots out there. Now I know how a non-gun person feels when they hear a jillion pistol & rifle calibers spoken about in conversation. Here in Texas, we had a harsh (and rare) winter storm hit us earlier this year. I've never seen single digit temperatures my whole life. My New Balance running shoes were not proper foot wear for snow and ice. I nearly slipped on several ice patches, and the snow soaks your shoes if it's deep enough. I want to finally get a pair of quality hiking boots or hunting boots that are at least truly waterproof. Both insulated and waterproof with ankle support would be nice. I am asking for any suggestions since many of you are actual hunters in mountain states. I want to be prepared for another winter storm with proper footwear. I was fine regarding clothes and jackets. However, I simply did not have proper footwear for real winter weather, and it took me aback. I didn't realize how much I took footwear for granted until we had that winter storm. The lack of one simple item nearly "froze" my activities. Thanks guys. I appreciate any recommendations. I'm sure it's hard to get into a final firing position if your toes are frost-bitten. It's also hard to take the garbage cans to the road too. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
