Ive got like 4: the Danner Strikers side zip...best boot I own waterproof, good soles, comfortable. The Cochran(not the jump boot style but i cant remember their name) boots which are also side zip..a bit clunky but comfortable and 100% waterproof up to the tops. 511 which are the higher ones that wont clear the detector they just mostly sit but they had rather thin soles and were just Meh for comfort. New Ballance 6" which are fine but are kinda more to me "summer/warm weather" boots not waterproof they will be my May-Sept type boots. these are comfortable and go through the detectors Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
