just picked up a pair of wolverine wellingtons. Ive never owned a pair of boots like this before. always been the traditional lace up work boots. I think these things are going to fit the bill quite nicely. they are pretty comfortable on my feet and heavy duty enough to ward off rocks and things flying around while trimming and edging. also ill have a bit of snake bite protection as that issue has recently presented it self of 2 occasions.

Rattler or a Moccasin? Perhaps you even have Copperheads down your way??

Well, guess it's been a couple of weeks since I've had the boots. They are breaking in really nice, and yes, they are extremely water proof.

One thing I have noticed, it seems like the lugs on the soles are wearing pretty quick. I thought they looked like somewhat of a softer material when I bought them, but you can tell they are wearing somewhat quick. However they are wore 5 days a week for at least 14 hours a day.

Thanks for posting what you have noticed about them. I wonder if the grip will change when then lugs wear out.

They are still really "grippy"... I figure I'll get a year out of them.

That's reasonable since you wear them 5 days a week all day I'm going to get a pair since they seem to have proven themselves.

the only negative, if you call it that, for me is the shoe strings. I like a thick string, these are somewhat like a thin paracord lace. I always double knot my boots, but if you pull them tight, the strings will cut into your fingers unlike how a thicker lace would not.

I'm posting some more pics after normal wear and tear. You can see how the tongue is sown inside and how high up the water proofing would be effective.

When I first tried on my Irish setters I decided they were comfortable enough that I would have them re-soled I they didn't last. They just seem too soft to last. Time will tell.
