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

    Too bad that all they have on that $15 sale is size 5 and 6! That would have been a super deal. Seems those are from the UK - probably why they hold up well! I'm still trying to find them in my size in the US. I'm a solid 7.5 and usually get an 8 in boots so accommodate heavy socks and still be able to wiggle my toes.

    And thanks Somantu , I'll look for Crocs - haven't come across them yet. Sorry you lost yours in a flood. That sucks.

      I wear the blue Servis boot from TSC. They are cheap, and they last me through a few years of almost daily wear (as a WS). I buy them a bit big and add inserts and/or room for thick winter socks.

            The short Hunter Wellies are fantastic.. they are spendy but you may be able to find some weird colour on markdown. I find them very comfortable and useful and they have lasted forever.

              Why not add a bit of your own money and try BOGS ?? I have a pair of the slip on shoes that I use for chores Spring-Fall. They give me great support, are not too hot and are well made and will last way longer than a rain boot( my daughter has those).

                Finally found the Servus boots on the TSC website - they only have the mens, smallest size 8 (way too big for my foot). Did search a bit, found the perfect boot that has everything I want, and dang if it isn't a discontinued item too! LOL

                @pokesaladaannie, I have seen Hunter brand boots in my searches and kept forgetting to ask about them.

                candyappy - I'm not familiar with BOGS, so I'll take a look at those as well.

                  OKAY - to summarize my rain/mud boot search, here are my top three choices. All had someone recommend and per Amazon, have a 4+ star rating. I think the cows are going to win (Slogger brand), but still mulling it over. Will place order tonight. I refuse to wear gallon baggies on my feet inside my current boots for another week!

                  One final question to those that recommended the above - can you easily tuck your jeans into the boots with no issue? Because that is very important!

                    The Croc jaunty boots (https://www.crocs.com/p/womens-jaunt...der-50&cid=410) are working out great for me. My jeans stay more or less tucked in. Def no good for riding but very comfy and great for just rinsing off. With lots of rain lately, I’ve been sloshing thru some pretty gnarly mud puddles. (Edited to add I got basic black. These are a little too fluorescent for me.)

                      I have a pair of Bean short rubber boot wellies that work well for most days after a rain where it is not a real swamp out there you need tall rubber boots to navigate:

                      https://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/9220...=630-GN1&csp=f

                      Mine are dark brown and several years old.
                      Whatever I use, it needs to have a very good supporting sole and have room for inserts.
                      The flimsy ones won't work for me.

                        The boots that only go to the top of the ankle are too short - they'd fill with mud, unfortunately. I have short boots for everyday around the farm when it dries up, or for times when I don't have to go swimming in the mud pits.

                        I got theses LL Bean Storm Chasers for Christmas in 2006. Awesome boots - they are well loved as you can see! They don't seem to make them in colors anymore, sadly. You used to be able to get them in navy, red, hunter green and I think yellow (besides the standard brown). Mark that down as another pair of shoes I wish I'd gotten two pairs of years ago! But they are useless in deep mud.

                          If you haven't picked a pair yet, Dover is having a killer sale on Noble boots, and they're "Stay Cool" so hopefully won't get too hot:

                            Well, the boots finally arrived a few minutes ago. I'm a bit miffed at Amazon Prime delivery taking 4 days... but anyway, they are so cute! And too small! I sized up to an 8, but could **just** get my barefoot in there. That would be problematic in winter with cotton tube socks on and I like extra wiggle room for my toes anyway. So back they go.

                            The saga of the new mud boots continues... second try should arrive on Tues.

                              I have had good luck with Kamik boots; https://www.kamik.com/b2c_us_en/wome....html?___SID=U. I have 2 pair of the rubber (hunter clones) and a pair of Pac boots for winter and they have all lasted well and are comfortable.

                                For everyday farm boots, I love my Sloggers! They have not cracked like every other pair of rubber boots. I have the short ones for cleaning stalls, etc. They are very comfortable as well, though I've had this pair so long I've worn the sole paper thin and now walking on gravel = ouch! But that's because I've worn them daily long enough to wear them out without them cracking or springing a leak. The patterns are super cute, or they have plain ones too. I have also found they run a but small, but I'm a half size normally anyway, so the next size up is good for me.

                                  Glad to have another good review for the boots I selected HenryisBlaisin' . I ended up choosing them for the treads on the sole over the BOGS. So, can't wait until Tues when they are supposed to arrive!

                                  I am so over going through so many 1 gallon ziplock bags just to get through the mud. Those boots I got at Tractor Supply have split all over the place, besides leaking through the soles as well. They are by Western Chief. Won't be buying another pair of them.
