    Short 'n sweet? What are the best boots to wear for irrigation repair work where you're getting sopping wet in warm weather? Doing some digging but not a lot...

    Opinions, please.

    Nothing like a good set of Chacos. And don't say I can't work or dig using these. I have. I can. And I will continue to. Doesn't mean I want my guys using them though.

    Georgia boots Mud dogs.

    I have swapped my tennis shoes out with them many times. While wearing shorts!! :clapping:

    They are alittle heavy though. But extremely comfortable. Great winter boot too.

    i usually like the hiking style boots with some aggressive tread... plus most hiking boots are pretty flexable for all the kneeling down... the last pair i bought was awesome, a pair of Ecco's... lightest boot ive ever worn... i bought something a little more heavy dutty this time, with a steel toe... LaCrosse, they have some more weight to them, but they hold up a lot better... im still behind a shovel quite often, and has a heavy duty sole...

    LL Bean duck boat slip ons without the winter insulation. I've tried a bunch of shoes and always end up back in these.

    Vasque hikers, expensive but worth it.
