As a kid I always had these, I can remember splashing about in them every spring… But after a certain point, I never had them.
Was probably after the age where I was expected to know how to Not walk in the slush/mud/water… 😉
But, at some point when I started working outdoors, and ATVing, 4 wheeling, etc, you’d think I would have remembered them, and gotten some, instead of always soaking regular boots in mud and muck… Nope! In all my ATVing and other back country adventureing as a teen/young adult, I never had them… Nor any of the time since, working, hunting etc in the fall and spring!
Amazes me now the things I’ve done without them! 😮 Also amazes me how much easier, and drier it is With them! ;)😅
