In response to your question about what boot to buy, I would suggest the new Desert Guide. They are made for hot weather. Like all of Kenetrek boots, they are made to last. Either boot would be great, you won't be dissapointed! They make the best quality hiking/hunting footwear on the market. The company is committed to customer satisfaction. My husband and I have a hunting operation in British Columbia. We have almost all the boots that they make. They are built to last and they are comfortable. Possibly the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own.
