    Kenetreks are the worst boots I have ever purchased. The soles started falling apart, the rubber wrap came loose, and they started leaking shortly after purchasing. I never could get them to fit right, always rubbed my heel no matter the insoles, socks, or lacing technique after putting myself through hell waiting for them to "break in", they never broke in. As you can see they do not have a lot of miles on them.

    if you've never had wet feet when hunting you aren't hunting/hiking extreme conditions.


    to those who say otherwise ,I must call BS. there has never been a boot made that will not fail you in certain situations.

    Guess myself personally am not speaking to the waterproof factor at all.
    I've got ankle issues and literally at the end of last year couldn't take the pain at the end of the day in my mid grade boots. Figured an expensive pair was worth a shot, and I can tell you they did.
    I've got 7 different pair of mid grade boots, that I've tried a pile of different insoles in, and if I'm at work climbing, walking, standing on ladders or tower rungs my ankle are fine. The minute I start putting serious miles on there not, that's the only reason I spent the cash, and really glad I did. Way more to a boot than waterproofing.

    yeah,I get that.

    some of those type issues can also be resolved in the way one laces their boots

    Whites Dri-foot boots are fantastic! Get the Claw lug sole. It's the best overall traction for any condition that I have ever used.
