I'm heading out on a Wyoming Elk bowhunt in September. I'm looking for a non insulated boot that's lightweight and waterproof. I guess it doesn't have to be leather and can be synthetic. I dunno if a good hiking boot would work or not. Any suggestions?

Crispi fits me really well and have been great so far. Only 2 seasons with them though.

I think mine are called the Colorado. I don't like high or insulated boots at all, these fit the bill for me all year.

Scarpa makes some great boots that are extremely stiff. I like them for coming out with heavy loads a lot. I'd try some on if you can find them.

Recently went through this process as well. Fortunately, there's an REI and Cabelas not too far yonder so I had the opportunity to try lots of options. Went with a La Sportiva Trango Tech that seemed to hug my feet. Very light weight, excellent torsional stiffness for side-hilling and a GTX liner to keep the toes dry in snow. Lowa Camino GTX were a very close second. Both from REI. Hope to have opportunities to do some backpacking/scouting this summer to see how they do in the field.

Thanks for the replies. I didn't like whatever Cabelas had and didn't make it to REI yet. So I looked into the Meindl Vacuum and ordered a pair. I really like the Perfekt hunters that I have had for years. So I'm gonna give them a shot. These are made in Germany like my others.

I replace about every shoe and boot insert with the Green Superfeet insoles. Has a made a huge difference for me. May try those once you buy some boots.
