Never Buy Boots Again
« on: Aug 19, 2013, 07:10 AM »
Im in the market for some new boots for this upcoming season.  Im really looking for some Mickeys.  Anyone know where I might be able to find a size 15 in these?  Not many manufacturers make their boots that big.  I noticed the Much Arctic Sports have a 15, but Id like to try the mickeys.  Ive been calling surplus places, but no luck so far.........thanks for any help.

The only place I found that carries them in size 15 is mickeymouseboots.com and the only width they have listed is narrow.

thanks Chris.  but 190.00???? and the non bata variety.  Wow, once again, penalized for being a sasquatch.  I may have to reassess my situation here.  I thought I could get some mickeys on the cheap, at least around a hundred bucks, then I wouldnt mind putting screws in them and have them as dedicated ice fishing boots.  I'll keep looking around I guess.  Thanks again

I hear you there, I hate looking for shoes since I wear size 14.  I'd keep looking around and see if you can catch a deal some where.

Perchnut, I feel your pain, I wear a 15W.  I have two pair of good pack boots with spare liners.

I would seriously consider these boots I own them Im telling you they are the warmest boots you can get. My feet always get cold and these are absolutely amazing. They do run big. They make a size 15 but im sure a 14 would be fine. Theres a ton of room in these boots. Very highly recommended.

Good luck finding that size. Sportsman's Guide has the boots for a good price. It appears that although they don't carry a 15, the 11 runs  way oversized.

I just learned that the Cabelas brand boots have a LIFETIME warranty on wear and tear and craftsmanship.

What this means is you will never have to buy another pair of boots if u buy Cabelas. Just ship in you old ones, and tell them what pair you want in return.  If the new pair cost more than you paid for your old pair, you just pay the difference...

Ill be shipping my old Cabelas that cost me $80 back for a new pair.. Pretty awesome..

That does take some of the sting out of dropping a bunch of money for a good pair of boots...

that's why I buy cabelas name products. I found that out 2 years ago and have been gradually converting. rain jacket, boots, waders, hunting clothes. etc. even the clearance stuff has the lifetime warranty.

Just set my old ones in (80$ value) for a pair of the Tans Alaska Pac Boots. Normally 199, buy only cost 120 because of my old boots.
Now ill never have to pay for another pair again.

Do you have to register the products or keep the receipts?
Cheers,
