Muck Boots Woody PK Hunting Boots Review

If you’re new to the hunting game or you take short, easy trips in the early season, it’s definitely a great idea to get a pair of simple, sturdy hunting boots made of synthetic material.

While you may be (and will be) most definitely tempted to splurge on a pair of classy, heavy-duty leather shoes, take a moment to consider the kind of hunting you do, and how frequently you take hunting trips.

Ask yourself this - are up for spending that much for a pair of shoes you won’t wear too often? More importantly, do you even need heavy-duty leather hunting boots if you’re going to be hunting in early season, or through grassy terrain?

Sure, if you’re a seasoned hunter who does intensive climbing and hiking through rocky terrain, and goes on long-drawn hunting trips, all in freezing weather, then a light, moderately insulated boot isn’t your thing.

Other than that, you’re good with a simple synthetic rubber boot - not only will it take less maintenance, you will also end up spending less, at least until you become a pro at hunting.

If you’re indeed the kind of hunter described above - someone new to the game, and happy with a pair of basic hunting boots, then these synthetic women’s hunting boots from Muck Boots are just the thing for you. As simple as they may be, they give you the best quality you could get from a pair of hunting boots well within your budget.

Features

Below are some basic but great features of these hunting boots that make them a great pair of shoes for women hunters.

Durability And Comfort

These boots are made of high-quality synthetic material with a rubber sole. This makes them highly suitable for different weather conditions, as well as resistant to moisture and dirt. Rubber is naturally flexible, which makes it really easy for a pair of hunting boots to adapt to the shape of your feet.

This is particularly important in the case of women’s hunting boots since women’s feet are shaped differently from those of men. A pair of boots that don’t match this shape could cause a lot of discomfort, which could be your worst enemy on a hunting trip.

With the Muck Boots women’s hunting boots, however, you are assured of sold comfort even when you’re wearing the shoes for a long time. They come with a unique 4mm neoprene and mesh lining, that not only keeps your feet well-cushioned, but also allows for optimum air circulation.

Low Maintenance, Low Cost

Synthetic hunting boots are super easy to maintain, because there’s very little to do as compared to leather shoes which require polishing/de-scenting.

On the other hand, with synthetic hunting shoes, there’s very little that needs to be done, other than washing them, cleaning off any mud or dirt from their surface and drying them properly.

This means you won’t have to spend on costly waxes and pastes, saving you a lot of time and money.

Not just this, the boots themselves are priced starting at a little over $105, making them cheaper than most other boots that promise high quality.

100% Waterproof

Since these boots are fully made of synthetic and rubber, there is zero possibility of them absorbing water or moisture of any kind.

Whether you’re walking through muddy land or treading through ankle-deep marshes and swamps, cleaning your shoes is a breeze, and your skin stays dry and moisture-free because these boots absorb no water. Synthetic boots are always more waterproof as compared to leather, and are the preferred choice for hunting in marshy, swampy territory.

What We like

There’s no doubting the fact that these hunting boots are a great budget buy - they cost you much lesser than other brands, they are lightweight, sturdy and need minimal maintenance.

If you treat hunting as a light outdoor sport, these could really be a great choice for you - they are neither too heavy on the pocket, nor on your feet, and will save you the trouble of spending long hours cleaning and scrubbing when you’re really tired after a particularly tiring trip. 

What We Don’t like

Having said a whole lot of great things about these women’s hunting boots from Muck Boots, these shoes have their cons just like their pros. Possibly the biggest one of these might be the fact that they aren’t big on insulation.

This means while they’re perfect for the early season, you might need a pair of heavier, more insulated hunting boots if you’re the kind of daredevil hunter who likes going after her prey in freezing weather.

Apart from this, there are also quite a few users who seem to agree on the fact that these boots tend to run at least half a size smaller, based on some reviews of these boots.

Buying Advice

Think about the kind of hunting you do, and if you find yourself to be a novice hunter who keeps to hunting in warmer or pleasant weather, going after birds or smaller animals, you might just want to buy these boots. Don’t forget to add a layer of socks for extra insulation if you need to, if there’s a slight nip in the air.

Verdict

Muck Boot Women's Woody PK Versatile Hunting Boot.

At a little over $105, this pair of shoes is definitely way more affordable, and a safe bet until you make up your mind about hunting more often, or in rougher terrain.

You’ll get plenty of wear out of these shoes, and they will keep you comfortable too.

After all, women tend to suffer more from heel pain than men, particularly after prolonged standing or walking.

And that’s really a hunter’s worst nightmare - to find yourself stranded stuck in the middle of the woods with painful feet, or hobble around because your hunting boots gave you blisters.

Which is why this pair of mesh-lined women’s hunting boots from Muck Boots is a great option - it covers all the basics, from resisting water and mud, to giving you optimum comfort, for a price that doesn’t hurt your pocket.

LaCrosse Alphaburly Pro Hunting Boots Review Reviews

LaCrosse Alphaburly Pro Hunting Boots Review

Hunting, although traditionally viewed as a men’s sport has seen its share of popularity with the ladies, increasingly so in the last few years. Women hunters have shown the same agility, fitness, passion for the animals, and manufacturers of hunting gear have been taking notice of them for a while now.

Take hunting boots, for instance. LaCrosse - one of the oldest and most trusted manufacturers of hunting boots have a range of women’s hunting boots that have been designed after carefully considering the differences between the foot shape and structure of men and women.

For instance, women’s feet have higher arches than men, and a boot that doesn’t factor this in could result in discomfort, as well as aching, swollen feet.

With LaCrosse hunting boots though, women hunters can be reassured that their feet will be well cared for.

Their best product is definitely the Alphaburly Pro 15 Hunting Boot - a pair of shoes that is designed to make your hunting trip a comfortable experience.

Made with high-quality synthetic rubber, this pair of hunting boots has you covered on all kinds of terrain, and in all ways - from waterproofing to insulation.

Features

Here’s a look at some of the features that make these shoes the best hunting shoes for women, as compared to other brands in the same price range.

High-Quality Material

These boots are made using different high-grade materials, in a combination that brings your feet optimum comfort and support in the outdoors. The premium rubber exterior makes these boots particularly sturdy as well as suitable for changing temperatures - they will neither warm up too much in summer or turn hard in winters.

On the inside, layers of neoprene and Thinsulate provide your foot with the snug comfort and warmth it needs, especially when standing still for prolonged periods of time.

Ergonomically Designed

There’s quite no place like the outdoors where the difference between men and women’s feet comes into focus. After all, hunting is all about being on your feet, all the time, and a pair of ill-fitting, uncomfortable shoes is the fastest way to ruin your hunting trip.

Women are more prone to foot pain because of the higher arch in the foot, and to counter this, the LaCrosse hunting boots have a specially-designed shank that goes under the arch of the foot, giving you protection and support especially when you’re walking on uneven surfaces.

In addition, these boots come with a removable outsole that adds extra cushioning, as well as helps you customise your boots to suit colder or warmer weather or different kinds of terrain. The adjustable gusset on these calf-length boots also wraps around your leg comfortably, allowing you to tuck in your pants comfortably without affecting blood circulation.

Scent Free, Every Time

Along with all the layers that add insulation and support, the LaCrosse Alphaburly boots also come with a unique embossed lining that absorbs moisture and odors, while also maintaining air circulation inside the boot. This means that your feet are dry, scent-free and 100% protected from rashes, blisters and infections.

What We like

There’s a whole lot to like about these hunting boots from LaCrosse.

First of all, they promise to be absolutely snug and comfortable, and from what the reviews say, they deliver on this promise 100%.

Users wore these boots in chilly weather and found that they keep their feet ‘toasty warm’, and experienced no discomfort even after a long time walking or standing still.

The premium rubber used in these boots makes them highly durable, so you can be sure they will last you years, no matter what weather or terrain you use them in, one of the reasons why rubber hunting boots are so popular with hunters.

The other great part about these hunting boots is the chamfered design which helps to shake off any mud or snow that accumulates on the surface, and the unique tread pattern which gives you a solid grip even on the trickiest of terrain.

Not just this, they also look really great, which means you stay in style even when camouflaged. These hunting boots definitely add a solid layer of protection, comfort and style to your favorite hunting outfit.

What We Don’t like

Honestly, there’s nothing about these hunting boots that’s a problem. You may have raised your eyebrows at the price that starts upwards of $125, but then again, these are boots that will last you for several years of hunting trips.

Then there’s the bit about how rubber isn’t really particularly friendly to varying temperatures since it gets too warm in summer and can turn rock-hard in winter - but with these boots, you get premium rubber combined with neoprene, so this is something you’ll never have to worry about.

Buying Advice

There is only one advice we can give you here - go buy these hunting boots before your next hunting trip. You won’t regret it one bit, and you’ll be relieved when you see how easy it is to care for these rubber hunting boots and maintain them.

Verdict

What We like

The comfort factor of these hunting boots is definitely a great deal - there’s no hunter who doesn’t know the nightmare of having to hobble through a hunting trip in an uncomfortable pair of boots.

The fact that these boots are used in some of the coldest spots in the world, be it Alaska or even the research stations in Antarctica says a lot about their ability to withstand extremely low temperatures, a much-valued feature especially for those who like hunting in the colder months, or at higher altitudes where animals like bears or elks are commonly found.

Then there’s the price, which makes these hunting boots an absolute steal deal. Without worrying a lot about spending a bomb on a pair of new hunting boots, you can find yourself a pair that will make a world of difference to your next hunting trip. 

What We Don’t like

While the Arctic Pro Hunting Boots from Muck Boots seem to be perfect when it comes to comfort and protection against the cold, there isn’t a lot we know about how durable they are, or about the manufacturing technology used to make them.

Having said this, popular reviews seem to indicate that these boots do actually last quite long. Another concern though, could be the weight of these boots - with all that padding and cushioning, these might be a tad heavier than the other brands.

Buying Advice

If you’re new to the hunting game, and want to take extra care of your feet while you get used to the unforgiving conditions of your first few hunting trips, these are absolutely the right pair of hunting boots for you.

Then again, a sturdy, dependable pair of hunting boots is a must-have investment for any hunter, and you’re better off spending this much on a pair of boots that will last you years, rather than choosing something made with inferior material, which won’t even last you a whole hunting trip.

Apart from this, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of insulation with these hunting boots, which is probably why they’re great for the early season, but might need extra lining or socks in colder weather.

Buying Advice

If you take your hunting seriously, and want the very best hunting gear for yourself, then go ahead and pick these without thinking any more.
