Hello All, I'm new to the forum here. I'm looking to buy a new pair of snake boots. I would like to get a pair of zip up style boots. I am looking for a value price pair. I purchased a pair of Justin Square Toe style 10 1/2D and they are not a great fit for me. Any suggestions would be appropriated. Please message me if your interested in buying my Justin Boots. Please remove this thread if not allowed.

Find a Justin Outlet and get a pair of blem Chips. My last pair a couple of years ago near Black Friday was about $86 IIRC.

I am on my second pair of these from Bass Pro:

I have very wide feet, and these are one of the few styles that actually fit.

Thanks for the replies. I have very narrow feet and I usually wear a B width in western boots. This makes it more difficult to find snake boots. Any suggestions would help. Adchunts I like the price point on the boots in the link. I was at Cabelas yesterday and I should have looked to see if they had them in stock. Maybe next time.

When you have a hard to fit foot, buying shoes and boots on line would have to be frustrating. My foot is just the opposite. It's real wide with a high arch. Can't wear just anything. No way in heck I would buy without trying them on. I mean think about it - you have to walk in them.

I am the same way. Tried on Chippewas and they did not fit right and seemed flimsy. After months of looking and trying on several diffeent brands I settled on the Danner San Angelo. [Linked Image]

Found a great deal online and ordered my size. Free shipping at the time and could ship back for free if they did not fit or needdded to exchange for another size. They fit like a glove out of the box and are very comfortable.

My left foot is a whole size larger than my right, high arches, and other issues. My 1st attempt at ordering a pair online and I am very pleased with the Danner brand.

I think I've ordered 5 pair from Amazon and send them all back for one reason or another. My feet like Rocky's the best but their quality has went down hill so bad that those are the one boots that I've kept a month only to have the seams come apart and the sole to separate from the boot. That's two weekends at the lease.

I'm so disgusted with snakeboots I'm just going to wear my last two pairs of Rocky's and call it good.

I have had multiple pairs of Rocky Brand boots with the exact same result. If they would hold up that’s the brand I would wear. I can’t see buying the same pair of boots multiple times a year. The search continues......I’m going to looking into the Redhead brand.

X2 on Danner. I tried the Chippewas and never felt solid and comfortable. Been in the Danners for 4 years of bird and early deer season along with countless scouting trips. Like a glove. When these wear out I will replace with another Danner pair.

My feet are also wide with high arch. I’ve found Lacrosse to be the best brand and most comfortable for me. Going on 4 years of hard use with mine. I don’t wear any other hunting boot anymore

I own a pair of Chips, but stopped wearing them last year because they're not terribly comfortable. Instead, I opted for a nice comfortable pair of 9" leather insulated hunting boots paired with snake gators. The leather on the hunting boots is plenty thick enough to protect from a snake bite. The 9" shaft of the boot goes to just below the bottom of my shin. The gators have plenty of overlap around my ankles and go almost to my knee. This set up is 100% more comfortable than the chips I wore for 2 years.

The benefit with this set up is that once I get into my blind or stand I can take the gators off. Can't beat the freedom or comfort! The gators I bought are the camo ones that Academy sells for $35. However, I found the same ones at Bucees for $19.99.

I’ve been been wearing Chippewas for a lot of years. Every GW I’ve seen in in S Texas has worn chips.
20 years ago I asked a game warden on the chaparral if they were part of their uniform, and he replied “no”, I asked why they all wear them and he replied “why would you wear anything else?” Bought my first pair that season.
I’ve had rocky, browning, and danner snake boots and never liked them near as much. Back zipper models are a game changer in my opinion. They take a while to break in and aren’t the coolest (temperature) but mine fit like a glove and I wear them about 10 months out of the year at the lease. I think for a sturdy boot they are extremely comfortable.

When I bought mine in Justin they said TPWD just came in and bought most so here is what was left. Luckily I wear a 9. All GW have been taller than me!
