KITT
Gumbos Rubber Boots
English Casual Apparel



Manufacturer: KITT
Model: Gumbos Rubber Boots
Category: English Casual Apparel

Purchase: I bought these at close-out for about $15 from HorseLoverz.com . I was looking for a muck boot that would last longer than the typical fashion and farm rubber boots you can buy at Tractor Supply or Walmart.

Likes: I wear these boots daily to muck out stalls and to walk the pastures in muddy days. I have been known to wear these all day long for months during the parts of the year when it is muddy outside. I like the shorter ankle height of these boots. They are also very comfortable, easy to slip on and off. Being shorter it seems like they don't make my legs hot and sweaty like some rubber boots can do, which is important in summer. I love the fact that I have owned these boot for 4 years!!! and I just now had to reseal a spot near where the sole is glued to the upper foot portion. I used Aquaseal Utherane Rubber boot repair I bought from JeffersEquine.com and the boot repair worked great to reseal the splitting portions and I have now used the boot for another 6 months of mucking stalls out and they are still waterproof with no other signs of cracking! Most every other pair of rubber boots I have bought usually gets toe bend cracks, ankle bend cracks or sole separation within 6 months of my using them. I actually have worn down the heel section on my current pair of these Kitt boots I have worn them so much and so many years!

Dislikes: I wish they were available in black instead of the hunter green I bought. In really deep mud, it would be better to have a taller boot since this shorter boot is not really designed for wearing in more than 6inch deep mud. But they do make a taller boot, so that is just the limitation of buying a shorter boot and trying to make it do the job of a taller boot. Don't expect to be able to ride in these boots. Although they have a heel and foot bed that is not any bigger than some Mountain Horse Winter boots, I don't think they are the best choice to ride in.

Quality: The quality and construction of this boot is amazingly good. I have never had any boot that I used to muck stalls with and just hosed off occasionally to knock off the mud chunks last over 4 years!

Summary: These boots are the best rubber boots I have ever bought for quality and longevity to wear to muck out stalls and for wear during muddy days. 4 years with no cracking and lack of waterproofing, being used daily to muck out stalls and daily wear during the rainy season. I don't think they are the best choice to ride in. They do run big, so if you wear a 5.5 street shoe or Ariat boot, than buy a size 5, because a 6 is going to be way too big. The fact that I bought them on close-out for a mere $15 is a blessing and a curse. That means that although I got a good deal on these boots, it will be probably harder to find a pair of them in the USA when it comes time to replace them. I would recommend these to boots to anyone wanting a good muck or mud boot.
