Ok, haven't thought about this one in awhile, but thought I'd drag it back out and kick it around. I know that most of you who do liquid apps boot up(and if you don't, you should) but I despise the standard "ditch boot" for their sloppy fit that rubs blisters into your feet(even with inserts) and the garbage treads on them that send you down the first wet slope. The lace up styles require you to handle the laces sans gloves and get crunchy. The slip overs are totally worthless and will ruin the shoes you cover with them. So how are you dealing with the issue? How would your ideal boot be designed? For me, it would be a solid, one piece shoe with no openings across the front in a lighter material than the "ditch boots", slip in style, ankle high, like some of the court shoes, with some decent support inside and a removable, washable liner/insert. Light colored, to keep the sun from baking me out more than necessary in that sealed shoe, a cleated bottom, like a soccer shoe, with a decent grip and flexibility to make walking in them more comfortable. Adjustable cam buckle across the top that you could latch down or open up with your gloves on, like a ski boot, to provide additional snugness when you want it. An attached shin bib that went mid high, wrapped three quarters and attached in the back with surgical grade elastic and quick release buckles. How about you?
