I have some Rocky lace ups that are probably 15 years old. I'm not sure what confidence I have in a pair worn as much as these.

Looking for a decent brand, preferably with a slip on / zipper function in the $100- $150 range.

I looked at the Game Winners that Academy had on sale for $99 a couple weeks ago and they seemed VERY stiff. I guess in time they would break in but not sure enough to write the check.

Appreciate any firsthand feedback. Here are the old ones.

I just got some Cabela's Boas. I really like them so far. They are slip on and tighten with a ratchet.

I've checked a bunch of them out, and I like Lacrosse. They are the tallest of the ones I've checked out & come right up to my knee cap. My first pair (in the photo background) lasted a long time.

I had some Irish setters, loved them but after a few hard seasons they started to leak water and then the soles started to separate they were a good boot. Then I bought some Chippewas well I can't get them on my foot so after trying to put them on a few times and hunting in whatever I had (they fit perfect in the store BTW). I picked up a pair of the academy snake boots and they have lasted 4 full seasons fixing to start there 5th. I still have a pair of Chippewas in the closet worn them 3 times....

I've got a pair of Rockys that have just a zipper and they're very comfortable. They get a little warm at times but I figure that's to be expected.

I've got the same pair of Rockies you have. They no longer will stand up straight. They are however the most comfortable boots I own. Just have them re-soled and keep going when you get to that point. I also bought a pair that zip up the side, but they just are not as comfortable.

I'm going with zip-up Chips. I've done the lace-up Cabela's boots, but they don't keep the water out and the laces are a pain.

I have a pair of Redheads and they are super comfortable, but like you mentioned, I hate the laces so much I hardly ever wear them. I bought them for support after I broke my ankle just days before an elk hunt, so they got me through that I suppose.

Zip up Chippewas are by far my favorite just not water proof, I do have several other pairs from cabelas and they are all good. But never fails that my socks end up wet!

Chippewas are comfortable and lightweight, not waterproof. I love the Justin snake boots as well but are heavier and weight is beginning to be a factor.
Adios,
Gary

I have three pair. Chippewa ALL LEATHER. The Chippewas with the Cordura uppers tore my achilles up on both ankles. I have a pair of Danners that have Cordura uppers and are very comfortable. The ones I've been wearing the most in the past couple years are Twisted X like these. http://www.overstock.com/Clothing-Shoes/...02/product.html
