    Quick Review: Cnell intrepid hunting boots

    Got these boots off trade me on a $1 reserve auction a few weeks ago the seller normally asks $179 for them. Yesterday was my first chance to wear them out in a proper bush environment , they had good grip, kept the feet warm (1600gram thinsulate ultra lining) and dry after walking through ankle deep puddles, the boots are resoleable which is a plus and come with goodyear rubber soles the foot and ankle support was good. To be truthful I could not fault them so if you do come across these boots on trademe they are worth buying if you are looking for a good pair of calf length hunting boots on a tight budget.

    Ok, someone has to ask...were you wearing these when you twisted your ankle?
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    yes I was wearing them when I twisted my ankle but it would have been much worse if I were wearing the old work boots I used to wear.

    That is true but I just used to wear what was on hand I used to alternate between my old pair of work boots which had bugger all ankle support and those hiker style boots you get from the warehouse to be honest I don't think a high end hunting boot will save your arse from a twisted ankle, and I am not about to get into a debate over me twisting an ankle while wearing them all I will say is that I had a bit of ground give out from under my foot while coming down a steep bit of ground but had the ankle support not have been there it would have been worse no one else was around to see what happened so I just can't be buggered getting into an argument over it.

    Inappropriate footwear in the bush will cost anyone dearly. Carrying a daybag is one thing, but trying to carry out an animal is a whole new experience in trying to balance one's body against the terrain. If one is prone to the twisting of ankles then they should strap them before leaving camp as it is too late once it happens...it can be a long wait or a long body drag to get home again. Been there, done that and learnt the lesson...I did it the hard way of limping and crawling my way home, and that lovely expensive rifle being my crutch didn't look too flash by the end of the day.
