ltl here...lookin for snake boots on ebay, saw these by Chippewa. Anybody got these and would recommend them? Is there a better brand? Or is this top of the line? Killed more snakes than dove last year, thought I'd finally give in and get some before sept 1....

I can't get my foot in those.... they are too tight around the ankle.

I've got a pair of Chips and they're the most uncomfortable boots I have ever had. Lots of people like them but they are not for me.

They fit different than other brands. Try a pair on first. They

The Chips are good boots, but I prefer these by Danner.

Buy them as soon as you can.

They are the only boots I'd recommend for this need. Mine are super comfortable like none others I've tried.

Danner is quality as well. Just too tight around the leg for wearing jeans tucked into them for me.

That's one of the reasons I love my chips, my jeans never rinkle and bunch up in them. I have the Viper model though, which is different from the one your looking at; the one your considering is more tapered around the leg because it's a riding/snake boot.

What he said; mine are comfortable once on but getting them on and off is a complete azz whip. 9 out 10 times I choose my cabelas front zip snake boots and leave the chips in the truck. I've even had em stretched and no dice.

I have not worn mine in about 5 years... can't get them on... and yes they are impossible to get off after wearing for 12 hours....

Boots are about FIT, Love them or hate them its about the size of foot.

Chips are far and away the most comfortable pair of boots, Shoes or slippers I own, But that's based on the size of my feet... slide on and off easily.... One thing... they are NOT waterproof.... if you hunt with lots of heavy dew, Your feet will get wet.... go out in the brush country though or mowing the grass these are awesome..... on me

Try several on and consider what you're using them for. The more you expect to use them, the more comfortable and minimal foot/ankle slip you want. Found a pair of Rockys at Bass Pro that felt real nice for @ $150-$160.

I bought these and they're very comfortable. Try both boots on to insure consistency in fit. I had to try in 3 pair to find pair that felt good on both feet.
