State of the Muck

Lucy on the porch with Muck Boots

My Muck Chore boots are just over a year old.

They're holding up nicely with zero damage and a high comfort rating.

I wouldn't be surprised if they last over 5 years at this rate!

I love mine and wear them every single day for chores. However, the last 3 pairs have developed cracks (leaks) at the 2 year mark. But still, not a bad track record for the usage.

Looks like Lucy is starting to show her age a little bit in the face. How old is Lucy now?

Zimmy --- Lucy is about eight, which is the average life span of a dog of her breed (Chesapeake Bay retriever). She is a little stiffer this winter than previously, and less inclined to jump into cold water, but can still outrun me easily. I'm hoping clean living will give her many more years!!
