    High top hunting boots

    What brands/models are out there? Looking to replace my meindl island pros with a taller boot of similar spec. Something like the bestard Coto.

    Beware Irish setters they seem to stretch out fit-wise and are heavy.... I was pleased to say good bye to mine!

    I have run the Bestard Cotos for last 3 yrs very comfy have lasted well I would get another pair when these wear out. I think @JoshC may have had an issue with them though?

    I still have mine, probably about 5 years. Only issues I had were with the original soles being pretty average and pretty poor customer service from the guy who sells them. Iíve had mine resoled with different vibram soles twice by a local boot maker, boots are still mint. More chunky tread makes them a very stable hill boot.

    @JoshC did you get a higher heeled sole put on. I found comfort, leather and raiding really good. Iíve had mine at least 6 years. The original sole is so low in the heel and only feels about 1/2 shank

    Yeah I did, but it was mainly because it was the most grippy sole I could get at the time.
