I have been seriously considering buying some plastics for sheep/goat hunting this year. I have been reading a lot on line and forum reviews about several different manufactures models, etc. I have never tried on a pair and am not familiar with them like other folks on the forum.
I have worn Lowa Sheephunters and currently have Scarpa Liskamms. I have two very very bad ankles, one in particular is my trick ankle that likes to roll unexpectedly even on flat ground. I thought the Liskamms would solve my ankle issues but I actually turned my ankle twice last sheep season (luckily I caught it before it rolled over completely) and did roll it good deer hunting. I need more support and believe plastics are my only option.
For those that wear them now and in the past, what brands/models are you wearing and how do you like them? Lowa Civetta Extreme, Koflach Degre, Scarpa Inverno, others?
Medium to wide foot. Possibly going to be a 10 mile normal trek (streams, rocks, tundra, etc.) to base camp, then eventually up.
