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:

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.

Geezz.. Wainiha…  It’s only been 6 months and 7 days since you started your quest for new boots.  Have your boots been leaking all this time?... Or you have been boot-less all this time? :dunno:

Of course, for those out here who wear waterproof boots, your report in 12 months will be most interesting!  :thumbs:

When it was flooding I was going barefoot.  But there is a danger of puncturing my feet.  Small floods and mud I'll wear the new boots.  If it is real deep water they'll just fill up, then no.  Just like waders in the floods here, if you get water in them you can drown.

You could always get some Cajun Reeboks (Google It, White Boots) they are cheap. Quite Stylish, I have a few pair that I wear on the reg (with no socks) when it's wet outside just stomping around in mud and low water they fit lower on the Calf. 

As Ruger said,  I have also used Lacrosse Uninsulated Rubber Boots I think they are called (Grange) for whitetail Archery Season in Mississippi to keep my scent down as opposed to leather. They fit much higher on the Calf but are hot because they don't breathe. They can also be stowed between the Cab of your Toyota Truck and the bed. Just press the top flat and press them between the cab and bed.  They will not move in transit but will be readily available when you have to walk through less than 15-16" of water. They also make uninsulated hip boots (Lacrosse Big Chief 32") with the same footbed as the Grange. As long as you keep them from Dry Rotting they should last for many years. I think my first pair lasted 6 years before they broke down.

I would try any of these before I went barefoot in water you can see your feet in. I am not affiliated with any of these companies but just used some of their products.

Wainha!!  I'm surprised you would post such a comment.  :disturbed:

The foot and ankle contain: 26 bones (One-quarter of the bones in the human body are in the feet.); 33 joints; more than 100 muscles,
tendons and ligaments (Tendons are fibrous tissues that connect muscles to bones and ligaments are fibrous tissues that connect bones to other bones.);
and a network of blood vessels, nerves, skin, and soft tissue.  :blah:

In every safety preparation related discussion, advice, or protocol that I've read, the very first action item is the protection of your FEET. :thumbs:

WHY?... in an emergency situation (tornado, earthquake, Antifa terrorist attack, if you cannot walk, run, or move you could be in extreme danger.  :yikes:

Also, your feet are the most likely part of your body to get infected from exposure to pathogens if they are injured and have open wounds.  :yesnod:

In an earthquake preparedness class I took after the 1972 big earthquake in SoCal, the FIRST thing you do before moving is to put shoes on!! :psss:

That's just my opinion - it may be worthless. :gap:

They cut their feet, got infected, and died.

That's why they are extinct.

Plenty people walk barefoot here.  Me, mostly only in my yard.  I have punctured my foot badly before.  Once a stick that was buried in deep mud.  I soaked my foot in hot water for a few days w/iodine.  All good.  Now I only wear slippers(flip flops to you guys) in the yard.  Shoes the rest of the time.  Kauai isn't as clean as it used to be. :thumbdown:

I could not walk on gravel or lava rock barefoot, and I would not even consider doing that!  :yikes:


Yep… lots of folks go barefoot.  I go barefoot when I’m bobbing in the pool.  I go barefoot in the morning when I wake up and head to the kitchen to start the coffee.
I’m like Ruger – I have tender feet and never really felt comfortable going barefoot.

When you say when its flooding and you walk around barefoot, presumably in dirty water, without knowing what is in it, that sounds foolish and risky. :dunno:

I think proper footwear foot worn for the conditions or terrain is obviously very important.  In my early sand dune days, wearing lightweight sneakers was very comfortable. Later when I got into 4-wheeling and rockcrawling, lightweight sneakers were not adequate.  I tried different boots and heavy shoes to protect my feet from the sharp hard rocks and twisting my ankle.  While piling rocks to a get over an obstacle, a dumbass idiot dropped a 40 lbs. rock on my foot, broke two toes. That’s when I bought  a pair of high quality steel toed boots to wear when rockcrawling.

In the summer of ’66 I worked for the Forest Service on survey team in high elevation. When the forest fires broke out, we were sent to fight fires!  My team and I got stuck overnight on the side of fire ravaged mountain – never been so frightened in my life.  I had to walk across a big creek and got my boots soaking wet.  After 48 hours of wet feet they started to get infected.  At 18 years of age and zero experience fighting forest fires, I had no idea what the real risks were.  By the time I got home, my feet were smelling very badly and the skin was starting fall off.  I was surprised how rapidly they got infected.  A pair of waterproof boots would have been smart.

Surprisingly, I remember seeing guys on the trail with $10,000 worth of axles and tires and wearing $10 flip-flops! (we call them slappers).

Anyway… I’m glad you are getting a good pair of boots to protect your feet!  :beerchug:

Hey Ruger.... back in 2001, while BAREFOOT, I jammed a 2.5" sewing needle that was buried in the carpet, into the end of my big toe. A 1" piece of the needle broke off and was stuck into my bone.  I went to work that morning and my boss said to get to emergency medical treatment immediately because infection.  I went to the urgent care, after X-raying my toe and seeing a piece of the needle, they sent me to a foot surgeon.  Watching the Dr. take a scalpel and slice open the end of my big toe, pulling out the needle, and stitching up the incision was weird.  I limped around for about two weeks before I could walk normal. 

I was on some very nice euphoric inducing drugs!! :D

when I was in AK it was wet and muddy part of the year and snowy and wet the rest of the year and I lived in my insulated extra tuff's. they were expensive but I still have them to this day 10 years later even when other rubber boots would only last one year.

I did hear they are now making some of their boots in China but at the time I bought mine they were all US made. this is only a rumor I heard so take it for what it is.

Growing up in Oregon as a kid, we wore a pair of red rubber "galoshes" during the rainy season. 

As I remember, they never really fit right and my feet still got wet! :disturbed:

Some people called them "rubbers", but that didn't sound right.  :rofl2:
