    Default Need new boots.

    My old Asolo's are finally worn out and I need a good pair of all around boots.

    I want full grain leather with a Goodyear style welt that can be resoled. Non insulated. And 6-8". Prefer made in America.

    I have about $160 to spend. Looking at a pair of 8" Chippewa from cabelas.

    Any other suggestions? Needs to be able to handle everything from working on concrete to the woods to the mountains while packing out an elk.

    I was just in this position wanted leather and made in america couldn't find anything that fit that description for under $250 maybe I wasn't looking in the right place. I ended up settling for timberland white ledge because they were so cheap on amazon. They are quite comfortable and seem to get fairly good reviews. If they wear out quickly I may drop more money on some danner boots but for now I am going to give these a shot.

    I recently ordered a pair of Cabelas Outfitters 9inch goretex boot, its only been a couble of days but so far I like them.
    They have goretex(which iv already tested and completely waterproof), vibram soles, and full leather.
    The boot soles are stitched on which I like and they can be resoled.
    They dont weight that much either, and are breaking in nicely.
    So far i like them plus when I ordered mine they were on sale and at a fairly decent price.

    Look at Red Wing. Most are made in USA, not sure about cost.

    I love my Timberland leather hiking boots. Not made in USA though. Waterproof leather so I have to remember to maintain them. Two years now of hunting, hiking, fishing, and daily wear plus I wear them ski patrolling and when I'm at the base for a shift they're what I wear. On the snowmobile and in the snow at the base area they've been fine.

    Tapatalk ate my spelling and grammar.

    I would recommend these Chippewa Apaches with lug sole.

    I have the non-lugged version, and I haven't taken them on any trails, but they've become my go-to boots for virtually everything else.

    Hmm, it doesn't say these are made in USA, but I thought they were, because the non-lugged version is definitely made in the US.

    Your boots will last so much longer with a rand or rubber toe cap, http://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabel...h-All+Products

    Thanks but If I had $300 to spend I'd but another pair of my Asolo TPS 520's. best boots I've ever owned. 8 years of hard use and they are just now to the point if needing new soles. But because of the design they can't be properly resoled.

    I have a pair of Meindl boots , made in Germany, top shelf hardware, top shelf sole ( vibram mulgriff 2 ) full rubber rand, and if you get them from Cabelas a pretty bulletproof return/exchange policy.
