Xtra Tuff Boots
Posted by B_M on Apr 26 2006
As to what Marc suggested, if you end up going with rubber boots I would buy Xtra Tuffs.  They are what all commercial fishermen use, and for good reason.  If you add a padded insole to them, you can wear them all day without too much discomfort.  No, they're not made for hiking, but I've used them when moose hunting boggy areas and have been surprisingly happy.  I, much like you, use leather when I can get away with it.  There are times, however, when rubber boots are the way to go.  A pair of Xtra Tuffs without the stell toe should run you about $75, but it's well worth the investment.
