need new boots
I need a pair of muck boots with a steel shank/arch support. Can't seem to find them anywhere. Does anyone have any suggestions? I wear LL Bean Maine Hunting Shoes now, and they're perfectly what I want except for the flexible rubber sole. I need that same rubber bottom/leather upper, same nearly non-existent tread to keep from collecting garden mud, but I can't bear the lack of support any more. Yes, I am becoming my gramma.
All the boots out there either have too much tread or too little support, plus they're made to be worn in the arctic, not in the hot summer sun. Halp!
