Muck boots-Day 1

Muck boots in action day one Chore version

I decided to upgrade my winter foot wear with some new Muck boots.

These boots fit my feet like no other boot I've ever encountered.

The stretchy material hugs the upper ankle area in just the right spots while at the same time having enough give to allow for a superior freedom of movement.

Good rubber boots are amazingly hard to find - having tried many different brands myself but not Muck brand, I will anxiously watch to see how they wear for you this season. Thanks for once again keeping 'us' (blog readers/homesteaders) in the loop. Happy Trails!

I love mine. They're comfortable and very warm in the winter, even in the snow. Once I filled both boots with very cold water in a creek. After dumping the excess water out of the boots the remaining water quickly warmed up to my body temperature and I wasn't miserable with freezing.

Dogpackmomma --- I totally agree with you about good rubber boots being hard to find! I'm in love with my new Bogs and I'm curious to see whose last longer, mine or Mark's.

Heath --- That's exactly what I experienced with mine. Plus, when it was 16 degrees the other morning, I went on my usual walk with no chilly toes --- quite a change from previous cold mornings!
