I am due for some new boots. Was thinking about crossing over to the world of rubber boots. Problem is, I have, at a minimum, .5 to 1 mile hike to my stand(s).

Which do you suggest and why? Or should I stick to the cheaper, traditional boot?

I found some ScentBlocker Dream Season® Knee Boot 17", Non-Insulated for $99.99, but have never worn rubber boots, so don't know if these are decent or not. I wear a brace on my one ancle (torn ligiments from football) and need to be able to slip on boots over it. So which do YOU suggest?

I am using Lacrosse Alphas ..... Great boot ... I travel .75 to 1 mile one way into two of my stands and I love them .... Comfy all day ... with your ankle brace you maylook for a side zip to better accomodate this

I have those same Scent Blocker boots and they are extremely comfortable. The only complaint that I have heard about these boots is that some of them leak but Scent Blocker stands behind them. I can't imagine a more comfortable rubber boot for hiking.

UnderArmour always make top quality stuff. But it is usually out of my wallet comfort zone. I have heard nothing but good things about the Muck boots, but like someone said above, a side zip might be better for me with my brace, or they might not come off at the end of the day, and my wife would be too happy with me sleeping in them.

I'm on my second pair of lacrosse alpha burly sports. I had my first pair for like three years. I decided since I needed a pair of higher boots for shoveling snow I would buy another pair of the burly sports to use for hunting and retire the old ones for shoveling snow this winter. Can't go wrong!!!

I've had great luck with lacrosse rubber boots. I picked up a pair of rocky rubber boots last year ant the soles came off in about a month.

I have A pair of Lacrosse Alpha Burly Sports. They feel like tennis shoes while walking. No kidding you could put 10 miles on them without a blister. The problem is when you sit for a while they are pretty painful across the top of the ankle/top of foot. I guess this is because of the fit for ankle support. If you do order a pair go a size big they run small. Also I've noticed the newer ones made in China seem to wear quicker. Hope this helps. I was thinking of trying Muck Armor / Armour. Rubber snake boots, but I don't know alot about them.
