    I bought an awesome pair of insulated(-50' C) rubber boots last year for almost $150. Tell the missus those were the ones you WANTED, but for the sake of the household budget you settled for the cheapies.

    It's all in the strategy, brother.

    She freaked cause hers cost 15 bucks, she didn't get the fact that I spend alot of time outside, she goes out for a few minutes. Man them boots are nice though good to -20, slip on without having to use your hands way better then tennis shoes with holes, they don't seem to keep the cold or wet out very well....:haha:

    I'd be interested in a review in a couple months. Always looking for good boots. Could have used a pair of 16" Muckmasters while hauling manure today:D

    Those look like Nikepups, good stuff from what dogs tell me :haha:

    Dude, when it comes to women, get a grip! We don't get chit and
    they get it all. We bust a$$ all day & night long and we ask for a
    little something, they tell us all about just how much they do and
    make us feel like we just sit on our butt.
    No matter what you try, there right. Save what ground you got and
    go with the flow.
    Sometimes it comes down to saying "your right dear", I'll take them
    back. (Then come down with BS cold and tell her she was right but
    now you just can't work or something?
    When they spend money, it's ok but when we do, you hear
    "We can't afford that!!!" :doah: :doah: :doah: :doah:


    I think it time for another shot of Tarantula :D

    I'm already sold on these thing, and if I had it to do over again I'd have gotten the 135 dollar camo version, they look like there better for hunting, but these should do well in the field too, I'm not to sure i'd wanna hike for mor than a few miles but man there comfy.I let you know in a month or so.

    $65 ain't much for good boots. My Danners were over $250. Of course, when I bought them I was a grunt and made my living on my feet so it made sense (sorta like how mechanics can't work unless their tools are in a $8000 tool box...).

    Rob, you must use strategy. Go to the store and buy the boots you want, then stop at the bar on the way home and blow $300 there. You'll be too ****faced to care when she reams you out (or won't remember) and she'll be too mad about the $300 bar tab to even care about some rubber boots.

    :p: :p:

    Oh to pass the sweet sweet Danners I wanted,I think they cost one million dollars and your soul and you had to meet the shoe salesman at the "Crossroads", I could walk forever in those bad boys and never return and I never had to try them on, they smelled like good sex to come though, wish I were a danner boot pimp.:bow:
