One of the best Boots I have worn has been a Finland made boot called Norkian. These are some of the long lasting rubber boots I have ever used. Putting a couple months of walking a year, I still got 8 years out of a pair.
I believe they have a dealer in PA, but I understand the Company has shut down. I like them so much I bought 2 pairs and put away one pair for years to come.
When in snake country I like the Russel's Moccassin boot company snake boots
Cold weather is not my best time for my feet so a pair of Gorgia 2000gms boots have kept me in the field...
