    Default Muck vs. LaCrosse

    I've been a LaCrosse wearer forever for deer hunting, preferring uninsulated boots. I've been looking at Muck's a bit now too and have narrowed my choice down to two boots......

    I wear nothing but my Muck Woody Max boots for just about all the hunting I do. But they're not the best boot for LOTS of walking. But I'm pretty much lazy and don't walk all day.

    I wear a pair of Muck wetlands if I'm not sure what the terrain will be like or if I know its swampy. If I know the area is dry then I opt for leather boots that provide more support.
    In rubber boots my feet get soaked with sweat...in muck boots they barely sweat at all

    all kidding aside I just picked up another pair of these this week.I was very pleased with my first pair.I was a little apprehensive on my first pair cause they were not tight conforming but they are light and i can walk all day with no fatigue.

    LuckyBuck I think we are going to stock the Bogs Boots this year. Everything I have heard compares them favorably with the Muck Boots with quite a difference in cost. We've sold PILES of Muck Boots over the past 3+ years and it will be tough to switch, but......

    I have the Woody Max and a pair of these; http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...014&hasJS=true

    The Sports are very comfortable. There is a definite durability issue with the neoprene on all of them. It takes some pretty rugged country to mess them up but it will happen. All that being said, I will buy another pair. I actually thought about trying their snake proof boots to see if they held up better.

    I have both and I preffer my LaCrosses all day long. They fit my foot much better and I've had them last a long time. I find the Muck uppers noisy and I've actually punctured them with a stick. And if that wasn't enough, LaCrosse are often less expensive.
    I always take life with a grain of salt, plus a slice of lime, and a shot of tequila.

    Muck kind of addressed the problem with the neoprene getting torn with these boots.

    I might give them a try.

    I'm going to be in the same boat this fall DL. I've been looking for a new pair also. The problem I have is oversized calves. Do any of you guys find the uppers on either of these boots too tight? I've found that the Lacross Burly are about the only boot that feels comfortable still hunting.

    Anything with a neoprene upper are pretty tight if they don't have the rear gusset to "allow the boot to open up for extra room".
