Built from a proud tradition of innovation, the Alphaburly Pro is their premium rubber hunting boot.
There’s a common misconception with hunting boots in regards to having to choose between waterproof boots, and comfortable boots with good traction that can be used in a range of terrains.
While there are definitely some rigid waterproof boots out there that feel more like waders, times have evolved, and now there is a solid amount of long waterproof boots that are not only warm, but also flexible, durable, and give you a good grip on most any surface.
The LaCrosse Men’s Alphaburly Pro hunting boots are a prime example. These boots offer an ideal combination of what you’d look for in ordinary boots, merged with a completely waterproof design that will keep your feet dry no matter what.
At first, the Alphaburly Pro’s have an ordinary look (no matter which color you go with,) but further examination reveals all of the details of what makes them such a great pair of boots for most any season.
The outer portion of the boots is constructed from durable, yet flexible rubber that resists scuffing, tears, and helps add an extra layer of protection to your feet. As for the style, you have a few different options, from solid color schemes, to a signature Mossy Oak style consistent with their usual designs.
As for the soles, a Lug Sole pattern is flexible, while providing a solid traction that is versatile across several different surfaces. It has just enough grab on rock surfaces, while still letting you walk quietly and comfortably on grass, mud, and more. A multi-layer rubber toe adds more durability, and protects your actual toes in the process.
Just beneath the rubber outer layer is a neoprene layer that helps trap heat inside, without restricting flexibility across the boot with each step. All of the outer components to the Alphaburly Pro’s are entirely scent-free, adding a bit more stealth to your pursuit.
As for the inside, an embossed Thinsulate liner provides even more heat retention, while avoiding moisture build-up. A nylon shank on the arch ensures ultimate support and foot positioning, with no slip. A neoprene gusset tops it all off, offering a custom fit around your calves that keeps water out.
The main theme of these boots is the full waterproof aspect, but a standard boot feel. This combination is hard to pull off, and the outstanding tread design and warm interior tops it all off.
But these boots are about more than comfort. They offer great traction, flexibility, and the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your feet will always be warm and dry, no matter what you encounter, and in frigid temperatures at that.
The tread can be a little bulky in certain situations. Also, these fit a little narrow, so if you need a wide version, you may need to look elsewhere. The gussets could be a little tighter if you have skinny calves.
If you want to save a little money, opt for a solid color, as the Mossy Oak color schemes are extra.
The LaCrosse Men’s Alphaburly Pro’s are an exceptional hunting boot that perform well in more than just wet and snowy conditions. When wearing these, you’re truly prepared for whatever comes your way, weather it’s trekking through snow in the Rockies during deer season, or crossing the occasional creek, these boots get it done.
