No, but there was one I found from 2 years ago hahah.  I must not have something set up correctly with my account.  Not a big deal.  Least now I know what it is supposed to do.

Check out the new Hoffman Explorers. You wont be disappointed . https://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?p=hoffman+explorers+boots&fr=yfp-t&imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fhoffmanboots.com%2Fimages%2Fthumbs%2F0000433_hoffman-insulated-explorer.jpeg#id=4&iurl=https%3A%2F%2Fhoffmanboots.com%2Fimages%2Fthumbs%2F0000433_hoffman-insulated-explorer.jpeg&action=click
Too bad they aren't waterproof. The original pair I bought in November wasn't and this pair leaks too. It's a solid stable boot though.

Send em back. They will take care of ya.  Never had my leak yet and it rained the entire elk season in st helens

@spin05

Curious when you bought yours? I must have got two pairs from a bad batch.

Will be calling Monday and sending them in. I see all this talk on elk addicts and other sites about them and have buddies that have had good success without leaky boots, so I want to give them another try. Just trying to ge ty $370 out of a pair of boots, but its been difficult so far.

my son and i both bought a pair around last july. My first pair were a little tight on the sides and a half size too long i think. So my son bought them off me. I got a Wide and half size smaller. Niether one has had a leak. We are both looking to get the insulated ones this summer

Looks like I'm preaching to the choir, but I bought a pair of Danner Pronghorns about a year ago at Scheels in Great Falls MT and loved em. Wore them for work too, nothing besides climbing around on roofs or driving equipment, and they started to fall apart after probably 7-8 months of owning them. Pretty disappointed because they fit me so well. But looks like according to this thread they have that reputation  >:(

In the past 3 years I've run Salomon Quests, Meindl Hunter Extremes, Scarpa Charmoz, Schnees Granite Pros, and Crispi Nevada's.

The Crispis are in a league of their own for comfort, fit, and function. Super lightweight, still plenty of support, they don't leak, and the built in rocker noticeably improves the efficiency of my approach, especially with a heavy pack.

I go as light as possible.  In September I use Altra Lone Peak, the mesh for early and Gore Tex later when there is frost or light snow.  During rifle season, I use the Altras when there is no snow and then move to a typical insulated boot.  I have a pair of Cabelas brand that have been holding up great.

Personally, I just can't stand a heavy stiff boot that most people use.
Altras are sweet. Love my lone peaks for scouting.

Looks like a soft soled danner elk hunter with lesser tread

Schnee's Beartooth uninsulated for early season and turks. Kenetrek Mountain Extreme 400s for later seasons. Love them both. Personally, Id give the edge to the Schnees.

How cold do your feet get? I just did a below zero trip uninsulated but that just me and the nature of that trip.
