    Same here Rocky Bear Claws work best for me also, they have a boot that doesn't cost as much called the Cornstalker but the bear claw is the best I think.

    I'd have to agree with Scott's philosophy on boots, spend the money to be comfortable. I get a pair of Carolina Leather Gore Tex Insulated Waterproof AND Chemical Resistant boots from my local shop here for about $165 a pair. I usually get a new pair every 7 or 8 months. The chemical resistant part is important since the chems we use for cleaning and degreasing destroy the adhesives in the boots. I know guys who go and spend all their money on their equipment, rigs, etc., etc., and they're walking around with wet feet because they're too cheap to spend money on themselves. I also keep a new pair in the truck when I'm on a big job. I had a pair of boots go on me a few years ago during a big job we were on for 72 hours straight and it took close to 3 months for the blisters to totally heal. As for cold weather, Carhartt has extreme weather gear that's waterproof and insulated and does a great job.

    I have yet to find a boot that stays totally waterproof for more than a couple days, gore-tex or not.... They all leak, though some hold out for a couple hours before the water seeps in. I've tried Rockys, Wolverine, and a couple off brands.

    I have boots that stay dry, the only problem is they are very expensive. camping or fishing stores usally have the top brands.

    Lacrosse Hawthorne. 6" high, Neoprene lined, very durable rubber outer, slip on and off easily, are very comfortable, stick on roofs, have'nt leaked since Christmas of 04. Thats 15 months, fulltime. The tread is a little worn, rubber is faded from chlorine, am ordering another pair soon mainly because of the fading and 100% assurance on roofs. But my current pair are still quite functional. I did much research before settling on these and I could'nt be happier. Once in awhile some water will get in the top but all other factors considered, an all around awesome find. They come in olive green/black or all black. 60-80 bucks. Check em out. I was going to keep them a secret but I owe you guys for all of the info. Thanks.

    My preferred way to keep my feet dry is to spend the day doing estimates, office work, and phone calls..........and let employees play in the water.

    Where's the fun in THAT?? I ENJOY doing this stuff! Yes, it's nice to have employees to do the nastier stuff, and to give me room for estimates and bookwork, but I certainly don't want to let them have ALL the fun!!

    Wood restoration is just about the only washing I truly enjoy. That and anything involving a lift........I like playing with those 4x4 Genie articulating lifts.....

    Is there any type of clothing in use that keeps you dry, like an apron? We used to use a heavy rubberized apron when I was a meatcutter, especially when cleaning the market for the day, but I can't imagine wearing something like that in 95 degree weather...

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    I use these in the summer time - http://www.basspro.com/World-Wide-Sp...13717/-1676725

    They are very lite, and comfortable.

    I put a pair of insoles in them, and wear these thick socks http://www.basspro.com/RedHead-Lifet.../34713/-876270

    I fold the sock down over the top of the boot and I never have a problem with my feet getting wet. For jobs that are all day they are so much more comfortable than the big rubber boots I use in winter. The socks have a lifetime warranty on them. The last time I bought socks was in 2004 when I bought the first 6 pair. I returned them in 2008 and am still using the ones I got them. They really hold up well.

    I got some of those same socks last Dec. from basspro. Theyre very comfy. Ive been buying timberlands. I found them at a national workwear and they've held up pretty well.

    I've gone through two pairs of Timberlands and a pair of Caterpillar Alaska waterproof (that just started leaking this weekend) over the past 9 months. During that time Chris's Danners have outlasted them all and are still not leaking a drop. It looks like it might be cheaper to go with the Danners in the long run.

    I like the rubber over shoes. you can wear what you like and just slip them over. Only about $30 bucks and haven't had a problem in at least a year!!
