Fine on a high hill or on a mountain hunt, but for the odd bit of walked-up there’s a degree of overkill. Admittedly that’s not really an issue if hunting is the only application for your footwear, but if you’d like to pull double-duty and add some walking or hiking into the mix, or even for casual day-to-day applications, a more mainstream boot might well appeal.

And apart from the odd scape while negotiating some really tough terrain, they’re still in perfect working order.
If you’re in the market for a do-it all boot, these Ariats are terrific and a bargain . action design for sure footing in rough terrain.
