So have a house full of kids and a lease where snakes have been seen and Caruso kinda thick....I also have a pair of redhead snake boots that are still in great shape, above the soles.....soles themselves are coming apart exposing their innerds.

Anyone have any ideas or tricks on getting a little more life out of them? The outer harder part of the soles are 80% gone.

Take them to Bass Pro, they'll replace them for free. There is a documented problem with the soles which has been corrected. They replaced mine in August, no receipt, no questions asked.

Wish I'd known that. I just threw mine away because of that reason.

According to both Grapevine and Rockwall locations, over a year-I'm SOL. Call CS, of course they didn't know of any issues and said it was up to the store

You can get ray guards that cover the ankle and calf for $25 last time I bought some.. They go over any shoe or boot

New boots be cheaper than Hospital visit.

Yup, average hospital visit after a snake bite is $10,000. That's assuming you only need 1 dose of anti-venom and no helicopter ride...

The place I hunt is tall grass and there's plenty of snakes out there this year. I bought a pair of blemished Chippawea snake boots for $150, that very cheap insurance IMO.

Lots of camo duct tape and glue. Get the snake covers, I think they are plastic, strap over the boots.

Uppers are great, just the soles are worn out.

Get an old pair of jeans, and paint them from the knee down (just regular wall paint). A few coats and you've got snake proof pants!

With those, you can wear any kind of boots.

cut the uppers off, put the uppers on your lower leg then add regular boots
