Best Gifts to Give in 2011: Backcountry Boots

    I always ask for boots for Christmas because I always seem to need a newer, trendier, warmer pair than last year’s. With that said, I don’t necessarily trust my friends’, parents’ or significant others’ judgment of style and even if they buy the correct size, manufacturers always have a slight variation in sizes, meaning one brand’s 6.5 might fit me perfect while another’s may be too tight.

    Waterproof Worker
    Rocky Boots makes incredibly high quality and durable boots that are stylish and won’t break your bank. They’re made for hunting, working and general extreme outdoors traversing. For men, I would recommend the Rocky Lynx Waterproof Insulated Boot. It’s made with Gore-Tex fabric which makes it waterproof but also durable. It will definitely be warm if you’re facing  freezing temperatures this season. And for the ladies looking for a quality boot that’s warm, waterproof, easy to put on and take off but that still fashionable, check out the Rocky Women’s Zipper Paraboot Duty Boot.

    Steel Toe Worker
    For hunting, working, wading, leather, rubber, an overshoe – I recommend LaCrosse Footwear. LaCrosse offers the Adamas series of work boot, but one stands out in my eye – the Adamas HD 8″ Brown Steel Toe Work Boot. They are waterproof, slip-resistant, wrapped in leather and the cherry on the top is the steel toe making this one bad-a** boot. Best thing is, it’s completely affordable and your husband will think of you every time he wears it and is impressed by its comfort.
