Default Muck or LaCrosse?

I have been wearing a pair of Muck Woody Max boots for the last several years. They are on their last leg and I was wondering what everyone prefers. I have looked at the LaCrosse Aeroheadís. Mainly concerned with warmth and comfort while walking in. What say ye? Fit? Comfort? Warmth? Longevity? Cost?
BTW I have been satisfied with my Muckís but if there is something better Iím all ears.

My dad gets cold real easy and he loves his Aeroheads. Now heís in his 70ís and doesnít walk very far but he hasnít complained about how they wear. I think he paid around $120 for his. Heís only had them for a year but they are still in great shape.

Muck x 10.

Something unfortunate has occurred with Lacrosse boots, IMO. (and there seems to be plenty of others saying it, too).

Back in the '90s I had some Lacrosse Burlys, and they were great- comfy, warm enough, and they lasted a long time. But the last pair I bought only lasted two full seasons before they started to dry rot. I did get a 3rd season out of them, but not without some wet, cold feet a few times. Now, granted, Im very HARD on boots. I hunt public land and walk a long way through really tough terrain. But I didn't "wear out" these boots. They simply started to rot.

Between those two pair, I bought a pair of Mucks, and they were very good. They did eventually spring a leak around the inside of the right sole, but the rubber held up well, and I got at least 5 seasons of HEAVY use from them.

I've read that if you "baby" your Lacrosse - wash and dry them and apply some rubber conditioner to them - they will last pretty well. Maybe so, but I'm not going to do that. I'm going to treat rubber boots like red-headed step children and buy the ones that last the longest.

Lacrosse Grange for turkeys. Muck for staying warm and dry.

Default Boots

Muck Woody Max in the cold for me. Lacrosse Alpha Burlys for wet, milder days.

If you want cold the Muck Arctic Sports are had to beat. Had those in the oil patch in CO, worked nights in -20 to -30 with those while wearing the thickest Smartwool socks I could get (think it's the trekking socks) and was fine. Only thing warmer was Baffins which are overkill down here.

I have Woody Maxx for 40 and below. Lacrosse for bow and early gun season, they are so much lighter and comfortable

Irish setters has had my vote. The comfort wise is the best.
