    Wore Keen sandals all summer and now my noral shoes and boots are no longer comfortable and frankly don't help my shooting (add that to you list of "Lost" excuses. Anyway I need something light, waterproof or highly water resistant, and of course comfortable. None of my Rockports, Asics or old boots are doing the job. I know that everyone has a personal favorite, but was hoping for a couple of popular favorites. Thanks. Mike Redding CA

    Hi Mike, I have always liked a brand called Dunhams. They didnt have any fancy stuff like gore-tex(not that its a bad thing) or grams of thinsulate. They used to have the slogan "take water and mud in stride with dry feet inside". The Dunham Canadian Duraflex are the ones to get. They are sort of a mustard yellow. The last time I got them, I had to order them from a place in New Hampshire. The first pair of these I bought years ago had a bottle of Dow Corning liquid silicone in the box. The directions said to use the whole bottle, I have been doing that the current pair every fall since then. Best of luck to you.

    Check L.L. Bean for Technical Upland boots. They feature a steel wire BOA lacing system and they are comfortable as slippers. I really like them.

    Mike,
    Under Armour speed freak boots. Very nice, light and goretex.

    I also tournament bass fish. Lake Shasta is my favorite lake.
    Will be coming down in Jan-Feb to fish a couple.

    Red Wing 877's been in em' for decades, still a good boot. Great lifestyle that keeps you in sandals for months! My toes have never been exposed to direct sunlight.

    Red Wings are still made in the USA. Keep America working.
    Fifteen two and a pair is four.

    Irish Setter "King Toe" if you want to still feel like you're in your sandals.

    Russel Bird Shooters, true moccasin construction and rebuildable. They will make them to fit your feet, and keep the tracings on file.

    Give Lefty a call, you won't be sorry.

    Better by far than most factory made boots and shoes.

    Keen makes hiking boots now. If you liked the sandals fit,you'll probably like the fit of the boots.
