Anything not rubber. Rubber boots never last me long enough.

With all due respect finding a real "good" boot that can take a beating and still hold up well for 30-60 is pretty tough. I went cheap on my boots two too many times. Boots are the one thing that I will splurge on now, just to keep my feet warm and dry. When your sitting in the stand in late November, the last thing you wanna be worried about is your feet.

Lacrosse makes an awesome boot but I prefer the Bone Collector Insulate made by Scent Blocker. Used them in Late December, Early January and I was perfectly comfortable even with an all day sit in there.

Economically, it makes sense to spend the dough on some real nice boots that you won't have to replace for 5+ years than to spend $55 per season at Wally World because your boots fell apart.

Best of Luck to you!

Rubber Boots?

I understand all the reasons you should use rubber boots but the main reason in why I do not use rubber boots is because of how loud they are in the woods. I'm not sure if its just the people that I have hunted with but everyone who wears rubber boots seem like every leaf you step on is louder than ones that I do. Has anyone else experienced this or am I hunting with people that have heavy feet?

Well the loudest boots I can remember was a set of Itasca Swampwalkers. Maybe because the base was the size of Nasa moonboots. They also felt sloppy, and didn't last but 2 seasons.
