This is my second pair of Lacrosse Alphaburly Pro rubber boots. They retail for around $200 at Outdoor Pros (not a sponsor) and are great boots. They have an 18” height, are lightweight (less than 5 lbs per pair), are made from natural rubber, have a neoprene liner, have excellent outer soles and fit snug which provides excellent support for walking over uneven ground. I did find the boots a little loose on my feet but a thicker insole took care of that. I can best describe them like wearing a good pair of hiking boots.
Lacrosse also makes a rubber
conditioner that is designed to prevent UV damage and color fading.
I’ve treated my new boots and I guess time will tell if regular use
of the conditioner will extend the life of the boots.
I bought my first pair about 8 years ago. They’re still in decent shape but one boot started to leak between the sole and upper boot so it was time to replace. I did patch the area and they’re water tight now but I’ll keep them for my backup boots, wearing around the yard on wet days or for ATV rides.
On Bassan's recommendation I picked up a pair of Alphaburly Pros after our Partridge Hunting trip in November 2020.
I chose the Realtree camo pattern as I loved the look and the 400g insulation which should be plenty warm for the hunting I do, I sill have my old boots if it gets real cold.
It's definitely one of the best decisions I made for hunting apparel as these boots are much lighter than my Dunlop Puroforts and much more comfortable for a day in the woods, especially if you have to do a lot of walking.
I've worn them now a number of times Moose Hunting and I'm super pleased with them, very comfortable and easy on the feet after a long day.
Cheers, BASSAN / MIKE
