Open cell foam does not dry fast.

I will say this, deer hunting in steel toes while it’s 13° out is a terrible idea

Had some steel toes when I went to Vrindavan. Finally wore the leather off the toes and yanked it off exposing the steel. Got em wet that night stepping into a puddle so let them dry on the window sill. Went to pick them up in the morning and was like mmmmm toasty. Fuck socks cause only going out to see if the truck was still there, shit burned the skin off my toes when i slipped em in. Fuck India

5.11 boots use composite toe instead of steel.
Message permalink: 707791524582260787
Never ran steel toes but I was moderately happy with composite toe. I'm also obsessive about my feet from running though.
Message permalink: 707793094065520693
I regularly check my shoe soles to see if I am running properly

Spare boots and spare socks are a real thing. So is crossing barefoot
Message permalink: 707795486479745066
I've used camp shoes to cross before but have always worried about cutting my feel on rocks underwater and never crosses barefoot
Message permalink: 707796059576991818
I made the mistake of wearing the wrong boots out to a three day event in the rain, crawling through streams and such. I think I changed my socks about 6 times a day and wore walmart sacks over them. I've been told if you're going to be in and out of shallow water a ton, LALO Amphibian boots and sealskinz socks are the way to go.
Message permalink: 707797014145925172
I just didn't really have any other boots with ankle support and couldn't afford anything at the time. It was a ton of fun, but I had my feet completely caked in foot powder by the time I was done. Also, average temp was around 35-45 depending on the time of day.
Message permalink: 707797469890740335
I do have a lower cut boot since 8 inch boots limit mobility too much in my opinion. Foot powder is a must if you are in shoes. In the heat it works so well when your feet sweat
Message permalink: 707798753280786463
I use Merrel chameleon hiking shoes. Use inside out moisture-wicking socks for liners, and wool socks over if it's cold.
Message permalink: 707798931257557034
wool socks were a lifesaver in the cold water
Message permalink: 707799047716601926
Can dry quickly too.
Message permalink: 707799099281375293
I'm never making that mistake again though. Next time I go out like that, I'm saving up and getting a good pair of boots made for the environment

I love Sierra Trading Post. Last years gear is totally worth the money for 1/2 price boots

Winter requires waterproof boots or gaiters.
Message permalink: 707800210398773278
This was fall so it wasn't freezing outside at least
Message permalink: 707800315013103635
There's a theory on boots made for water though. You can't keep water out of your boots, it's impossible because even if it's completely waterproof, you'll still sweat. You can make a boot that lets water out though
Message permalink: 707800503374839888
With boots that don't breathe well leaving the boots slightly loose air flows when the boot moves with each step and can clear out some of that sweat
Message permalink: 707800862822498324
but then water can get in, and stay in, when you go knee deep in a creek
Message permalink: 707801008193142804
Yeah I basically fear water unless I'm planning to swim
Message permalink: 707801701926830151
if you make it out of a material that can't become waterlogged, but create drainage holes, the water flows in when you go into water, and flows out when you leave, letting your feet stay dry when you're on land

The particular event I went to, (cringe if you want) was a three day airsoft game put on by a couple of rangers. Tons of fun, I got to play as a starving Venezuelan rebel with a G3. The setting was an alternate reality confederation of south american countries under a communist dictatorship with a small rebellion of citizens who were being covertly assisted by a ranger battalion and one ODA. The whole thing written and ran by a couple of actual rangers. I figured the best approach for attack would be to come from the shittiest path possible, so I lead my ragtag fireteam crawling through hundreds of yards of thorns, creeks, swamps, and everything else unpleasant that Picher Oklahoma had to offer. It worked, we cleared house and rolled the enemy team while they were too busy complaining about people using white light instead of IR. After getting waaaay off track there, desert boots in miles of swamp and thorns was not fun.

Look up reviews for the LALO Shadow Amphibian. It's fucking expensive, but everyone I've talked with who runs them said they're worth it.

I see a composite shank as something that I would like but a super rigid sole isn't something everyone likes
Message permalink: 707805075912917063
It's important to keep the sole from collapsing and taking the load off of your feet, especially if you're carrying a ton of junk. I think part of the reason was to make the boot more quiet when moving
