67 years growing up in south Louisiana and I finally broke down and bought my first pair of snake boots. After trying on every brand I could find, I finally settled on the Irish Setter lace up Vapor Trek. They are tall at about 18” but very light. I replaced the insole with one designed to support the Plantar Facia. These are about as comfortable as a good pair of sneakers. I pulled the trigger when Cabelas offered me 10% off and free shipping making them $180 plus tax.
