Outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen with wider calves will appreciate the roominess of the Viking boot. The Viking is also great for people who need extra room for under-layers and thick socks. The expandable vent in the boot shaft accommodates up to 21-inches in circumference. This keeps the Viking looking neat, stylish and discreet while also allowing extra room for tucking in pant legs. Great for duck, deer, bird and turkey hunters, early season and ice fishing, dog trainers, horseback riders, and workmen.

    Long ago when I decided to upgrade my hunting boots I went with high end insulated leather hiking boots. They were not even close to what I was looking for.in comfort I ended up a big fan of Rubber boots like Lacrosse and Muck. They still left my feet sore after long days and miles scouting/ hunting. I am a fan of John Eberhardt and decided to heed his advise and try these. I paired them with a think Lamalite sock. My right foot is bigger than my left and it was really tight. I emailed customer service and met Jack the owner. With his very quick responses and me sending pics of where my toes were, I decided to try and wear them in. Im glad I did. Ive hunted 15 full days so far with my last trip in Northern Maine where I was walking hills, stepping over blow downs and climbing embankments. I am amazed at the comfort of these things and the lack of soreness. The lightness and spring make walking seem easier. I had no slipping issues in steep terrain. No buyers remorse here. And the customer service is second to none with the owner Jack responding quickly to all emails.

    I found Gumleaf while looking for a replacement hunting boots. After alot research, I decided on the Viking Neos. I’ve taken them for a walk through some hay fields and a few ditches to go check on my treestand and have also taken out them out duck hunting. The boots are really light and comfortable to walk in. One of the biggest differences I noticed was how easy it was to walk; the flex in the boot and their weight made it feel like walking in sneakers. I’m looking forward to using them during the upcoming hunting season and this winter in Ontario, Canada.

    The customer service was also fantastic. I really appreciated the emails and the phone call to talk about the fit for the boots and alternatives to my original order. It was extremely helpful and Jack went above and beyond what I would have expected.

    Very comfortable, shipping was fast and most of all the quality of this boot is incredible. I absolutely wish I found these boots before other leading brands.

    Best hunting rubber boots you can buy! Insanely comfortable. Walking is so soft compared to competing hunting boots. I do not have big calves, but wanted room to tuck in my pants and with the adjustable gusset these worked perfect. Aggressive sole so it bites well into every terrain. Also, a snug fit around the ankle and foot. Much morso than my other big name rubber boots. And most of all, I have to give a massive shout-out to Jack, the owner of gumleafusa. An absolute gentleman by all accounts. These are the kinds of brands and people we need to be supporting. I know they’re pricy especially for a rubber boot, but I know it’s going to last me years.

    I’ve had these boots for a month and taken them upland bird hunting 6 or 7 times, going at least 5 miles each time. Although I’ve hunted in temps over 70 degrees I’ve yet to find the need to take these off at midday due to the unexpected benefit of them being exceptional ‘briar boots’ compared to the normal upland boot I’ve historically worn. I’ve not had them in truly frigid conditions yet, but they’ve handled wet 25 degree weather with ease.

    As far as comfort goes, they’re easily as good as my prior upland boots, which all lost their water resistance after 1.5 to 2 years (and became decidedly uncomfortable after that). They’re a little heavier, but not enough that I’ve longed for lighter weight. The Vibram sole is really good.

    FYI my typical terrain is not flat but hilly and rocky with plenty of sandplum, blackberry, sharp rocks and tall grasses. The boots are a little scuffed, but I anticipate they’ll hold up better than my other leather moc-toe style boots, all of which I’ve worn the stitching out on the top of the toe after about a year to year-and-half. Lastly, I thought I’d punctured or torn them several weeks ago when I slid down a rock with a really sharp edge. I was pleasantly surprised to find only a scuff mark instead of an abrasion or puncture.

    My only gripes so far are (i) I wish they came in half sizes – I’m a Nike running shoe size 12 and these in a 12 run a little bigger than that; an 11 would be too small, but an 11.5 would’ve been perfect for me, (ii) and the gusset closures sometimes open up when I’m in really rough terrain, so I wish the closure faced rearward instead of forward.

    Long story short – yes I most certainly recommend this boot.
