    rubber boots, yes they may be uncomfortable and hot but I don't have chemical all over my feet.

    we like the pull over rubbers.
    wear your own work boot and pull the rubbers over it.
    doesnt look real fashionable, but protects from exposure from pesticides and keeps feet dry.

    all other 'spray boots' we have tried have very little, if any, arch support and can make any day seem like it will never end.

    I hear those muck boot are good, gotta get some,

    "i tried many boots most of them uncomfortable."

    I find wet feet far more uncomfortable, so i wear rubber, although my feet dont get as wet since Ive been riding the pg's around lawns :)

    Not any boot is good. You definitely want chem resistant boots. The ones that slip on over your existing shoes DO work well, though.
