Need help finding a good slip on chore boot. Have had trouble in the past with finding a good slip-on.
Now have trouble forgetting to take off these lace-ons.

I'd sure like to get out of trouble one day.

I've had pretty good luck with LaCrosse "Barn Boots". I have seen them in several farm type stores and only cost about $15. They are not insulated, so I buy them big enough to allow me to wear about 3 pairs of boot socks. I like them because they are pretty light, hold the moisture out just fine and will dry out quickly if I do get water in over the top. They are durable enough and if I do damage one, are cheap enough so I just buy another pair. The boots are fine for working in manure or mud and comfortable enough to walk long distances in them. And they are about the cheapest boots I have found.

Agree with "one word" MUCK! They work great, and don't slip off when you are actually in the muck.

By gosh, there is a store 23 miles from me. Can't find a boot that is big enough to go over my calves, and this might do it. Thanks again, hope they have something for me.

I use one piece snow boots, that I get at Walmart for chore boots. You just slip your foot in. I buy them new in the fall, and use them all year, and buy another pair the next fall. I think they cost $19.99. Since I use them everyday on the farm, they develop holes where your ankle bends, but that doesn't happen until the summer after I buy them.

I saw a nice pair of chore boots in the Gemplers catalogue that I'm thinking of ordering, that may last longer.

Go to a good feed store or wester clothing store and get some slip on overshoes. They come in zipper and buckle styles. Buckles are a pain, always getting caught on something. They come in lined and unlined, depend on how warm you want your feet. Also you don't have to zip or button them all the way up so your feet don't sweat as much.
