They are great for slipping through the woods(no pun intended) quietly. Back when I hunted on flat ground the lacross is all I wore. I wore holes in the bottoms of several pair.
I bought a pair of Danner pronghorns a while back and, while they’re a comfortable and lite boot, the gortex is a joke. I’ve warrantied 2 pairs that started soaking up water like a sponge after 2 months use. Even with reglar grease. Anyway, I think it’s time for a change.
