I bought these boots in Texas, many, many years ago. I wore them around off and on, but it's been years now since I put them on. They were pretty comfortable, seemed to be well made and were especially useful for those occasions that I felt being 6'2" wasn't quite tall enough. I suppose I should give them away or dispose of them somehow, but you know how us guys are.
They'd definitely protect you from a snake bite. Speaking of which, 2 days, no snake sightings. Cool.
