Muck boot says to "Leave them at the back door." The Muckster II Low is a great little slip-on winter boot for wet and sloppy conditions at a backcountry camp, backyard, or farm.
The Muckster is constructed using Muck Boots' self-insulating waterproof foam inner boot bonded directly to the waterproof molded rubber outer boot. A breathable air mesh lining pulls moisture from your feet into the foam liner for fast evaporative drying. An aggressive lug sole provides traction without holding on to loads of mud.
I began testing the Muckster II low boot at the tail end of the spring and have continued through the summer and right into our California rainy season. Kept at my back door, they are used daily for yard chores and forays into the garden and chicken yard, rain or shine.
The Muckster slips on easily and is pretty comfortable for a rubber boot. A removable quarter inch footbed provides a decent amount of cushion, though additional arch support would be needed if they were going to worn all day.
The insulated inner lining is quite comfortable and has proven warm on days with temperatures in the high 30's. Worn on warm days the air mesh liner does an adequate job of keeping my feet from becoming a sweaty mess. I especially like the way the top of the boot is stretchy and closes around my foot, this helps keep dirt and mud from migrating into the boot's interior.
You really can't beat the traction supplied by the nubby sole and the fact that mud doesn't load up on the sole is a real plus. Being fully waterproof I never have to worry about coming back inside with wet feet. After six months the boots still look like new and I imagine they will be around for many years.
All in all, the Muckster II Low boot does a really good job at doing what it is designed for, keeping my feet warm and dry.
