I wear a pair of ankle high muck boots, a little warm, but comfy. They are old, had them since company was starting to take off but only wore them on the boat during striper season when needed.
I also have ankle high pair from bass pro, same as much but a lot lighter and leas substantial… $30ish if i recall correctly. Very good value in my opinion.
Im a Muck boot fan, have 2 different pair for hunting, but will be trying out the short Lacrosse boots when i need more
