I thought maybe the first pair was a fluke but two tells me they are just another boot. Just cost a lot more.
    that was my take on them also. decent boot but not for the price.

    I would consider buying another pair but I would not pay more then 300 for them.

    I only paid $200 for my second pair, they were slightly used. I would have never tried a second pair if I had to pay new price. Both pair leaked from the back of the boot above the heal. I could feel the water seeping in within the first hour of the day. I was wearing gators and my feet we’re soaked from ankles down within three hours.

    I've been wearing New Balance shoes all my life. There are a few brands out there for sneakers and dress shoes, but very few for hunting. Cabela's used to make lots of 4E boots, but they stopped.

    Found Under Armour Men's Speed Freek Bozeman in 4E and like them very much. But the are more like athletic shoes rather than hunting boots. Did fine during deer season when temps dipped in to the teens.

    Wife got me a pair of Irish Setter Elk Trackers last year...I haven't broken them in yet.
    I have the same size foot you do ... and all the fitting problems that go with it.
    I hunted my whole life in boots that didn't fit ... didn't have much choice.
    Last year I tried Lathrop and Sons. They fitted a pair of Zamberlan's for my foot size. They're expensive but this year I had boots that fit for the first time and it was great. You might want to check them out.

    $200????? THAT is one thing I would never do.

    1. I do not want used boots.


    mine were ok boots , they just didn't last any longer then the cheaper danners. just cannot justify the price difference.

    2. no pair of used boots, no matter the condition is worth risking more then $20 on. (there is a reason they are being sold)

    I will get my $200 worth out of them during bow season, they are fine In fair weather. It tough to find a new pair of anything for less than that $200.
