The 5 Best Boots for Christmas for the Outdoorsman in Your Family

YouTube

We all want the best boots money can buy, but these boots just might be a better choice. 

When it comes to keeping your feet warm and waterproof, there is a lot of competition out there in the boot industry. All companies claim to make the best boots, but few actually do. In most cases, you also end up paying way more than you should, and then, when the rubber meets the woodland, the price tag just doesn’t add up to the results.

Luckily, if you’re looking for a gift for Christmas for the outdoorsman in your family (or just for yourself), we recommend these boots as standout options. Trust us; anyone would be happy with any of them.

5. UA Speed Freak Bozeman

Under Armour has been making quite a name for itself in the hunting industry these last couple years. Unfortunately, a lot of their gear is starting to creep up in price because of this. (On the bright side, they haven’t yet figured out just how much more they can charge the consumer before they start losing customers). As long as they keep making products like the Bozeman, it’s not something they are going to have to worry about. These boots are warm, waterproof, and all you need for any hunting application. For $164.99, these boots are a steal.

4. Irish Setter VaprTrek

You want to talk about another steal of boot, the VaprTrek is it. Irish Setter is known for their boots. They are also known for sane prices and getting your money’s worth. The outdoorsman in your family will enjoy eight inches of waterproof comfort, as well as the warmth of these. If walking through soggy creek bottoms or flooded fields is required to get to the treestand, then these boots are a must. For $154.99, good luck finding something better in this price range.

3. Irish Setter 12″ Elk Tracker

This is the boot all the guides and hunting experts wear when they aren’t being forced to wear something else due to contractual obligations. With 12 inches of support, your ankles will be in good shape hiking through any terrain. That is also 12 inches of more waterproof durability that is hard to find elsewhere. With 600 grams of Thinsulate insulation, your feet will stay warm as a fireplace. Coming in at $259.99, they are an investment, but they are worth it!

2. LaCrosse Alphaburly

If you are walking around in the muck and the mud or duck hunting in the swamps, the Alphaburly is your choice, hands down. For only $159.99, this is your best best for those conditions. You can also enjoy 800 grams of insulation and neoprene construction that holds up when other boots with a similar style fail. These boots will make any outdoorsman happy who operates when the weather gets cold.

1. Danner Pronghorn

This is the favorite boot of outdoorsmen all over America, and an obvious choice for those who know. Danner makes the best boots out there for many reasons and once you put a pair to the test, there’s just no going back. The Pronghorn is a boot that you will own for years and then some. At $249, it’s a bargain. With 1200 grams of Thinsulate, your feet just won’t get cold. With eight inches of support, your ankles and calves won’t get sore after walking a few miles in the field. Similarly weighted to a sneaker, this boot just breaks the mold. If you are buying this boot for someone in your family, they will owe you one, and they will know it.
