I've been happy with the Lacrosse Alphaburly boots. Go on easy, and super comfortable. Being up north I have the insulated ones and they keep my feet pretty toasty

Thanks for all the input. I've been looking at some Sketchers. They are really hiking boots, but I guess the only real difference between a good hiking boot and a hunting boot is the camo. Anyway, the local Boot Jack has one model in stock, they look and feel pretty good. They also get good reviews online.

I've also looked at the Timberland. They get good reviews, but not as good as the Sketchers, and they don't look quite as well made.

This is the Sketchers I was looking at.

Remember, it's not how many guns you have. It's how many bullets you have.

I have resorted to slip on shoes. Low cut or boots. A lot less strain on my failing back. :(
