To be honest I wouldnt buy a boot online if I were you. Every single boot fits different. Youll be better off going to Big5 and getting some 6" hiking boots.Anouther thing I noticed on those is they have heels with ledges. Theyll get caught on roots and rocks more than boots with curved heels. Also since a lot of hunting is done off trail but not on rock climbs 9" boots will be a pain, something lower cut wil give more flexibility but still gives you support from twisting your ankles. And dont be afraid to look at "hiking boots" instead of "hunting boots", they are the same exept for the name and colors as far as function goes, but youll find a whole spectrum of better deals. And always remember WOOL socks.

I have that same pair of boots. I like them alot and they are well-built, especially for the price.That being said, they don't keep my feet warm in cold conditions (i'm a wimp when it comes to my feet being cold) so just last night I ordered Cabela's 8 point boots with 1000 grams thinsulate. Hopefully those will work better. They were 77 bucks, shipping was 13. Good luck in your decision!

I also noticed it says its made of split grain leather. I would try to go for something like full grain or Nubuck. Split grain means that the leather has been shaved down to put suede on the inside and out, and is therefor less durable. Full grain and Nubuck retain more of the leathers natural thickness, but Nubuck will have the outside buffed to give the apperance of suede.

That's probably one of the reasons they are priced at $69.99 or half the price of the Danner's. :drinks:

If they are anything like the RedHeads that I have stay away. My toes go black and blue every time I hike in them.

Over the years I have had very good luck with Cabelas boots. Have not tried this particular model, however have purchased several of their upland bird boots and have been quite satisfied. They are light, especially climbing hills for quail and there great for those all day pheasant hunts.
