Nah
I can easily understand Goodyear, but what is the deal with Under Armor? I was thinking about buying some for an upcoming bear hunt. It sounds like that would be a mistake.
nah just my take. I have many pair of their cold gear long johns and they have lasted years and years. They claim to support hunters but pulled their sponsorship from a guy who speared a bear. Only after the antis told them to. I’m just not giving them anymore of my support because all they care about is making a dollar at the expense of hunters.

Well, that makes for a tough decision. I have heard all good things about their products, but I do not like the idea of doing business with a company that caves to the antis. This is rapidly wearing down my choices of what I can buy from whom. These companies need to keep their opinions to themselves.

There are numerous reputable brands out there. Everyone’s feet are different, so taking recommendations is tough.

Sounds like you need a stiffer boot. I like stiffer too, and schnee’s granites have been a favorite for a few years now, and recently the scarpa manta techs. The schnee’s run a half size small, the scarpa’s are true to size.
