Finding proper footwear for myself is an ongoing battle. Without going into the medical details...I am looking for a boot for winter. I want/need a slip on boot for a couple reasons.
Time spent outside in winter these days is minimal. Mostly 5-10 minute trips to the barn etc. The most time is spent when doing snow removal on my tractor.
Even without snow my grass area is always wet - always.
I was in town yesterday and looked at a pair of Muck Boots - the genuine ones. The knockoffs all looked like junk.
I couldn’t try any on as there were none in my size (13 or 14) so I would have to order online. Looking at reviews at a couple different sites seems mostly positive for what I am looking for.
I normally take a size 13W (wide) but they aren’t available from Muck. Some reviews said they were OK going up a size with wide feet which would be a 14 for me.
There is very little available out there in a wide snow boot period.
The ones I looked at in person I liked. So before ordering something for which I would have to pay return shipping I was looking for some real time experiences from our members. I will likely order from LL Bean as I have a 25% coupon that actually works on boots right now. All other places consider Muck boots exempt from discounts.
As an addendum - I looked hard a Bean’s boots but just can’t get over the tread design. They look downright slippery to me - the last thing I need right now is to fall. Plus, again, no wide sizes.
I am looking at the Muck Arctic Sport mid-high boots. They seem to run around $150 everywhere. With my Bean coupon I can get them for $112.
