    I just wanted to let you all know. I have had my Gumleaf boots for not quite a year yet, but they have proven themselves over and over. Being a full time hunting and fishing photographer I am pretty rough on my gear. My Gumleafs have been put to the test, mud, water, snow and they are holding up nicely. Comfortable to wear and well made. I have traipsed the muddy river bottoms of the south shooting woodcock hunting, spring turkey down here in North Carolina and just cold wet days sitting in a duck or goose blind. You make a great pair of boots.

    As a professional upland guide, I walk mile after mile in unforgiving terrain. My livlihood depends on my feet and my feet depend on my Gumleaf boots. I guide for Ruffed grouse and Woodcock, and they live in unmanicured places. I have to be able to get to them, and back out again, day after day. My days rely on my Gumleaf Royal Zips.

    Bar none the best rubber boots I have ever owned. Upon first putting these on they do have a fit unlike other boots- the fit is that of running shoes. Quality is unsurpassed. I was reluctant due to the price compared with other boot makers however, do yourself a favor and buy the best boots made and thank Jack later.

    I just got back from my first grouse hunt at Pineridge Grouse Camp near Remer, Minnesota. In doing my research before going, I kept hearing about Gum Leaf boots from the Project Upland and Gun Dog podcasts. In fact, Ron Boehme told me over the phone I needed knee high rubber boots for grouse hunting in Minnesota in mid-October and that Gum Leaf boots were the best. Still being a little uncertain if I needed to spend that kind money, I called the owner, Jack Butler, who spent quite a bit of time over the phone to tell me about the boots. I then pulled the trigger on the purchase and took my new Royal Zips up to Minnesota to try to get into some grouse. Almost immediately, I knew I had made the correct decision. Not only were the boots true to size and a perfect fit out of the box, they were almost a requirement for that type of grouse hunting. I had no idea how difficult walking the covers was going to be and how wet they were in places, especially the places the grouse and woodcock liked to be. People can tell you, but it is something you need to experience first-hand. I am glad I listened and bought the boots. My new Royal Zips now have just the right amount of skuffs, and I suspect they will look just like that and last me for years because the quality is obvious. And if for some reason they don’t, I know I can always call Jack.
