Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.
Gumboots are a type of rain boot made of rubber. Gumboots are commonly decorated in a wide variety of fun patterns and colors and generally feature low heels with traction pattern soles and knee-high shafts.
LaCrosse Industrial 16" Meta-Pac Darn near bullett proof!

I work in a wet underground mine and wear these boots 8 to 10 hours a day. I walk an average of 3 to 5 miles a day and good boots are a must. These boots last longer than any other boot I've worn. They last 6 months and while that may not sound like much most other boots I've tried only last 2 to 3 months at best and I've tried many other brands. If you need a good long lasting pair of rubbersteel toe boots you can't bet these LaCrosse Meta-Pac.
