I am a huge Muck Boot fan (note - there are knock offs out there - I am talking about boots made by the Muck Boot Co and under the Muck Boot brand). We use these exclusively on my ranch in Montana and have purchased just about every make and model they have from the Muck Shoes all the way up to the cold weather arctic versions and everything in between.
The neoprene uppers stay soft and are tough in the rough. They are easy on and off due to the soft uppers. I have a high arch and full length rubber boots are always very hard for me to get off. These boots, since the uppers fold down, are much easier to get off.
They work fine over the pant or under the pant. The only time I have seen them break down is when my employees ride motorcycles out to change wheel line, etc. and they hook them on the foot pegs. This can tear the uppers, so they are not indestructible. The rubber bottoms are very well constructed. The steal toe versions of the boots provide good front foot protection. Size seems pretty standard, so if you are a men's 10, the 10 seems to fit true. A typical pair of boots will last years on the ranch and I have never seen one come apart in any place. The sole will wear out before the boot breaks down. Leaking has never been a problem.
One note: The tack or scrub version of the boots has a sole that is not really made for great gripping on slick surfaces (at least that is my experience). They work fine in the barn, but if you are going to be doing a bunch of walking outdoors, over ice or slick mud, I recommend the "lug" soles.
I have worn the arctic version of the boot in very cold weather (-10 F) and your feet will stay warm with a good sock. I would not use them to stand for long periods of time in very cold weather, as there are better boots made for that kind of performance. The non-arctic versions get worn all year around unless it's very cold.
These boots are not cheap in price, but the last thing I want is wet, cold or sore feet or a boot that breaks down quickly. Muck Boots perform very well and will outlast cheaper brands by a long time.

Do what I want them to do.
By David Burt
I purchased these as a very cold weather and tough use boot. I purchased one size up from what I usually wear to allow for thick socks if I need them.
1. They have kept my feet very warm standing on sub freezing concrete, ice, snow, mud etc.
2. They have handled the abuse of crawling under and through equipment etc.
3. DOWNSIDE- They make my feet sweat, or at least trap the moisture. My feel are wet most of the time I am wearing them, but still warm. I don't suffer from foot odor normally, but after wearing these all day my socks are powerful ripe and very unpleasant. So there you go.

LOVE my Mucks!
By Sheila M. Frazier
I volunteer at a sanctuary for large, exotic cats. In cleaning enclosures, dens and playgrounds, a lot of water is used to clean and there is a great deal of mud on the surrounding grounds. As it began to get cold, I realized my insulated, waterproof hiking boots were not so insulated and certainly not waterproof and I needed something new. I noticed a lot of the other volunteers wore MuckBoots, so I asked around about them. I was told they were the greatest things, but to be sure to get the ARCTIC SPORT boot to keep my feet warm; the top has a stretch binding, so it is virtually impossible for water to get in them . I heeded the advice and absolutely love them. At first I thought they might make me a little (more) clumsy, because they were bulkier than I was accustomed to....not the case at all.
LOVE these boots and would highly recommend them!
