I got these snakeboots around april for turkey hunting. I loved the way they were put together with the zip up on the side of the boots and that it was made out of cordura material. The boots were a little stiff out of the box but after breaking them in they were fine...until they started leaking. I noticed that if i walked through high grass with lots of dew then they would leak water in around the foot area. I just called Rocky and they said i would need to take the boots back to where i bought them and that they would return the boots for me. A little frustrated because this is the 2nd pair of Rocky snake boots that i have found have NOT been waterproof. Anybody else have any problems with this boot?

I will never buy another pair. Bought 2 different pair about 2 years ago and both haven fallen apart with not much use. I called and they would not send me new ones either. Never again.

I just bought my wife a pair of Danner Sharptail snake boots a little while ago.

I had a pair years ago that were "water proof". Well it turns out, the boots were sprayed with a water repellant, and once you wear off the repellent...boots leak. I try my best not to buy any boots that don't have a liner...gortex etc.

going in tomorrow to return them. see what they say. if at all possible im going to try and put some more money towards it and get Danners or Lacrosse.
 
i cruised timber during the summer when i was in school. in the summer 2001, i wore out two pair of rocky snakeboots. the soles came off both pair. i didnt have much money, but i broke down and ordered a pair of danners. i still have the danners today. they look terrible now but they have never, ever leaked. theyre as comfortable as they were the year i bought them.

Just an update. The Lacross Venoms i ended up swapping the Rockys out for are awesome. Been walking through wet grass and in water all turkey season and been holding up fine. no leaks so far.
 
I thought everyone quit buying Rocky's years ago when they had the problem with the soles falling apart on all their boots? Not to mention they didn't offer a refund.
 
i'll never buy another pair of rockys again.
got a pair of bruins at the end of season 1 time never wore them until the next season and the sole started comming off. rocky basically said 'o well'.
they wont get my money again
