Rubber boots
« on: Dec 07, 2019, 11:29:22 AM »
Who uses them?  What kind?

I bought some from Duluth Trading. They failed in less than a year.  Seams split and water leaked in.

Hey Wainiha,

The Duluth Trading commercials are some of the strangest I've ever seen.  :disturbed:

The company and marketing seems to be obsessed with specific body areas.  :gap:

One cartoonish commercial appears to target a man’s genital area with “Cooling Boxer Briefs" and “Buck Naked Performance Boxers”   Another commercial appears to target women who do forceful masculine type “work”, and they should be concerned with exposing an area on their back just above their butt?  :dunno:

The "Stop Yanking" TV ad starts with a back shot of an overweight woman sitting at diner bar stool with her back exposed as she reaches for the creamer.  She ‘yanks” her overly stretched tank top down to cover her exposed back right above the top of her jeans.  But we are not supposed to notice she is sporting a 75 lbs. butt!!  :yikes:

They also sell the “Buck Naked & Free Range” Undies for women.

Are the key words here: naked, cooling, performance, free range?

Look...I'm not saying that cooling my genitals from time to time is bad thing.  Or... that I shouldn't notice a woman with a big butt.  :moon:

I haven’t worn a pair of rubber boots for about 60 years.  :shake:    But... wearing good leak-proof "rubbers" is a must!  :thumbs:

I’m no help Wainiha.  :smack:

Gnarls. :inthedark:

I have a pair of rubber boots I got from Big 5 about 20 years ago.

But I doubt I have a month of actual usage...……...

It gets real muddy here with so much rain.  As for Duluth, I'm not liking them as much I did, and yes the underwear commercials are stupid.  Their sizing is to small.

Cabelas is cheaper and has better selection..  Unfortunately everything everywhere seems to come from China.

I used to have a pair of grange(la grange) something like that years ago, heck might still have them somewhere.  I used them fer a few seasons when I worked a Christmas tree lot. My feet stayed dry.
