There is a new breed of lightweight hunting boot out there that every guy should at least consider. It’s a cross between a running shoe and a standard boot. It’s a super lightweight mid-height waterproof boot. I am on the bandwagon and have been for years. I just learned the lighter your boots are, the less fatigue it puts on you and therefore the more miles you can do. These boots will come in around two pounds for a pair. Compare that to a standard hunting boot and you could be saving over a pound for each foot with the lightweight options in this review. Figure you do somewhere in the neighborhood of 10k-20k steps a day on a tough hunt, maybe more. By using these lightweight boots you are saving yourself from an extra 10,000-20,000 pounds of leg lifts per day!
