Top 10 Snake Proof Boot Companies

Snake Proof Boot Companies

Snake proof boots are specialized boots that are designed to be functional for a wide variety of outdoor uses while also offering guaranteed protection against venomous snake bites. Snake proof boots were seen as being a much needed bit of footwear that are especially useful in areas that have a large concentration of venomous snakes around. Snake boots offer some of the best snake protection available, and are often seen as absolutely necessary for areas like the swampy south, or southwest desert - places that have a lot of rattlesnakes, coral snakes, copperheads, and/or water moccasins around. Snake proof boots are great apparel to protect people from the bites of these nasty slithering critters, and there are many different snake proof boot companies that specialize in making these great products.

This blog post wants to recognize the best companies that produce the snake proof boots that hunters, hikers, and other outdoor workers or enthusiasts can all enjoy. While there are other companies that also make quality snake boots, the following make some of the best selling and most well known snake proof boots out anywhere on the market.

#1: Chippewa Snake Proof Boots: Most of this list isn't in any particular order as all these companies make fantastic snake proof boots, but Chippewa snake proof boots are among the best selling and most recognized in the world. For several years now the best selling model of snake proof boots have been made by the Chippewa boot company. While there are many great snake boot companies competing for crown of top dog, Chippewa snake proof boots, at lest for now, seem to really have the crown. In fact, the best selling snake boot in America last year was the Chippewa 23913 men's snake boot. About any type of protective boot designed to stop snake boots will be excellent, but Chippewa is still tops, for now.

#2: Lacrosse Snake Proof Boots: Lacrosse is another company that is very well known for making excellent snake proof boots. Lacrosse snake boots have long been associated with quality, and are often mentioned hand in hand with Chippewa as two of the largest and best known companies in this field. To use an analogy, if you compared snake boots to soda, there are dozens of soda companies, but Chippewa and Lacrosse are the Pepsi & Coke of snake boots.

Lacrosse is a company that is particularly known for hunting boots. Because of that it makes sense that a company specializing in outdoor footwear and hunting gear would also be excellent at producing snake proof boots. Lacrosse snake proof hunting boots are designed to be used in both the woods and the swamps, and in many places in the South are a necessary safety precaution for hunting in swampland full of venomous snakes. Lacrosse snake proof boots are extremely popular, although many more niche based snake boot companies are aiming to catch up.

#3 Rocky Snake Proof Boots: Rocky Snake Proof Boots have gained strong popularity in recent years. Rocky Snake Boots are an excellent bit of footwear that provide hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts with extra protection from vipers when out in the wild. Many snake proof boots are going to be similar, and like Lacrosse, Rocky Boots concentrates a lot on hunting. One major difference that makes this company popular, is that they also concentrate on boys snake proof boots and girls snake proof boots, offering protective snake boots for kids and young teenagers. Many companies solely concentrate on adult sizes, so if you're looking for some excellent snake boots for younger wearers, then Rocky Snake Boots might definitely be the way to go.

#4 Herman Snake Proof Boots: Herman snake proof boots are another brand that have done especially well in recent years. In fact, based on the chatter online one could argue that Herman snake boots are growing faster in popularity than any other brand. Whether or not this will continue remains to be seen, but among snake boots and the many snake proof boot companies out there, Herman snake proof boots are a good choice that will stand up to most comparisons, even with much larger and more well established competitors.

#5 Justin Snake Proof Boots: Justin Snake Proof Boots are quality snake boots that are a smaller niche in the snake boot market, but have a very solid reputation. Unlike many of the other companies on this list, the Justin company doesn't completely specialize in hunting boots and snake boots, but this company is a boot company first and foremost. Despite this, snake boots from the Justin Company are still very reliable and well made.

#6 RedHead Snake Proof Boots: RedHead Snake Boots have a strong group of avid devotees who firmly believe in this brand above and beyond the others. RedHead is an excellent choice for medium budget hunters and outdoorsmen, and in particular the RedHead Ultra 16 Snake Boot Hunting Boots in particular is one of the specific styles of snake boots released by the RedHead company that is getting a lot of positive reviews from purchasers online.

#7 Irish Setter Snake Proof Boots: Irish Setter Snake Boots aren't nearly as well known as most of the others on this list, but these are high quality boots that are specifically designed for hunters in swampy and snake infested areas. These snake boots have been sometimes referred to as "leg armor against snake bites," and are built to both be rugged and comfortable. The Irish Setter snake boots are insulated and warm, as well as thoroughly water proof. If you find a good cheap pair of these hunting boots on sale, they're worth the buy.

#8 Danner Snake Proof Boots: This is a reliable company that has a more limited selection of snake proof boots than some of the other companies further up on this list, but a pair of Danner snake boots will get the job done just like any of the others on this list. Boots from Danner will be ust as effective at keeping the feet dry and viper fangs away as any other pair of snake boots you find on the open market.

#9 Gameguard Snake Proof Boots: If this name sounds familiar, but not because of footwear, then you're on to something. Gameguard camoflauge snake proof boots are a fine quality snake boot, but Gameguard is more well known for snake proof leg guards and snake proof chaps. Still, that should be reassuring that since this company specializes in snake protecton that they really know how to make a snake proof boot that is going to be as good as any competitor on the market.

#10 Mossy Oak Snake Proof Boots: Mossy Oak Snake Boots are a brand of protective footwear that even most hunters have never heard of. These boots are some of the best snake proof boots that the larger Lacrosse company has to offer. They've been tried, tested, and are considered the best blend available of being light weight, incredibly strong, and fully functional. The Mossy snake proof boots were designed with the Southern turkey hunter in mind.

So that's a list of ten of the best snake proof boot companies around - maybe even the only one of its kind online as of this writing. I hope you enjoyed it and found this article a great resources all about snake proof boots.

Nice list of snake proof boot companies. I want to say that in my experience Rocky Snake Proof Boots are the best. I think what sets them apart is the snake proof boots for young boys and girls as well as snake proof boots for teenagers. This made it possible for me to share the outdoors with my children, and not be worried about stepping on snakes.
