  • Good Rain/Mud Boots for under $75. Need Recommendations!

    So, I posted not too long ago about my cute rain boots that were leaking. Well, not long after the other boot started leaking and now they are literally falling apart. They clearly weren't meant for such heavy-duty daily use and I need to replace them ASAP.

    I have a $75 gift card that I've been saving for a rainy day (Ha!) that I'm going to use, so they can't cost more than that. I like mid-calf, vs tall - ankle won't work - mud deeper than than in places (plus I already have some LL Bean Storm Chaser slip-ons). I prefer some color or a pattern or something cheery vs. just black. Looking on Amazon, I found several boots I like - but I have no experience with Sloggers, Joule, or UGG. And there are probably more - if you have one to suggest, please do! Thanks!

      I purchased these, they are neoprene so keep your feet warmer, they are comfy and waterproof.

        I buy the mens rubber boots from Walmart. The ones in the hunting department. They are made to last and be worn all day. $40 or $50 for ones with the felt insert.

          Those are cute. But I'm afraid I'd burn up in neoprene - My feet get hot in all my boots, even in sub freezing weather in winter.

              I watch for sales on Muck Boots. They still don't last more than a year with heavy use.

                wsmoak - I found the Muck Boot website in my search and they do have one boot on sale for I think it was $60 - but gosh, if they don't last a year that's not good.

                I long for the days when stuff lasted forever if you took good care of it. Seems products these days are made to be thrown away <sigh>. Its not like the old days (70's and 80's). I'd rather pay a little more and have it last, than throw stuff away. I think my boots from TSC (the ones that are falling apart) were originally $20 or so, and I think I've had them for maybe a year and a half? My thinking was that maybe a $50 - $75 boot might last longer. But if that's not the case, maybe I should just just get another pair of what I have, which are now on sale for a whopping $16. They didn't start leaking for a good 6 months or so (wearing several times a day, all over my farm).

                  I’ve had better luck with Muck boots, not forever footwear but decent. Joules are for holding your hunter for the groom in the wash rack, not serious work. Zulily occasionally has close outs on Muck boots.

                      I'm older, so "last forever" to me is 10, 15 maybe 20 years... not as in forever, forever, like a lifetime.

                        I find these boots only last a year if that FWIW. I may use them harder than some, I guess.

                          You said you wanted to spend $75 at most. Perhaps there are boots that will last longer... Dubarry, or even one of the knock-off brands maybe? But they are going to cost more. (And I shudder at the thought of wearing good leather boots in ankle deep mud! I want something I can hose off.)

                            You can find some nice ones for little $$$$ on ebay.

                              I had a pair of UGG snow boots eons ago, they were ugly as sin but lord did they hold up. I think they went about 7 years of daily use in Ohio year round before any holes ripped through. They had a hard shell foot then the snow boot material stuff from the ankle up. I'm about to give up and look for another pair. Snow boots in Florida seems silly but, those things were WATERPROOF, and everything I've tried here so far rips through/gets leaks within a few weeks. Or give me hellacious blisters.

                                Back in the early 90s I bought a pair of rubber Ariat paddock boots. These things are still wearable but they've ripped where the elastic meets the rubber. I'd love to have another pair exactly like those but they don't make them anymore. The closest thing I've seen are the Noble Outfitters rubber paddocks but they don't have much of a heel, and I sometimes will ride in them.

                                Had we known then what we know now, many of us would have bought multiple pairs of what turned out to be favorite, hard working, long lasting boots.

                                  I love, love my sloggers. I have 3 different styles. Slip ons, regular shoe size, and mid ankle. Mid ankle is the best because it protects my ankles from mud and nettle.

                                  The best part is that if they get dirty, you just hose them off. But I hate the sole inserts because the dirt and hay sticks to them. Best to buy a non stick insert separately.

                                      You mentioned a budget, these are a bit over but worth every penny. Also, free shipping. These have trudged through snow, mud and if need be, can be ridden in. I wear regular Ladies size 9, narrowish foot slim heel and can wear Men size 7. Have had my current pair over eight years, no splitting or cracking.

                                      I've seen the Joules yellow boots crack and peel with less than a months use.

                                      Another boot I can recommend are the Rockfish Wellington, trim fit and very durable so far. They are guaranteed for a year. They are listed on Amazon. Price depends on size and color.

                                      Also, on sale Horseloverz, sale pricing depends on size and color.

                                        If you're not looking for warmth, Crocs rain boots are light, super comfortable and last forever. I had mine for 11 years... until my car was written off in a flood –– with Crocs in the trunk.
