Et tu Xtratuf?
So while I could probably get another season or two out of them, I figured since I was planning on getting new underwear this year, I might as well replace my Xtratufs too.
So I run over to Squidco and pick up a shiny new pair of size 13s. When I took them out of the box, something just didn't look right to me and my old pair told the story...
and sure enough...

Honeywell International will be moving production of its renowned XtraTuf boots from Illinois overseas -- probably China -- next year, but that should not be a worry for the many Alaska devotees of the tall, durable rubber footwear. KCAW-FM in Sitka sent a crew down to the harbor to gauge fishermen's reaction to the news that the big "Made in the USA" logo on every XtraTufs box will disappear. "If they're still readily available, then the news is not all bad," one said. But Sitka retailers, who say they've had good service from the U.S. factory, have some worries about changes in the supply line and the product's image.

That blows. I just about need a new pair too... Where are Muck Boots made?"Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, which holds forth the proposition, that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Just bought these 3 months ago....
The tackle shop by my house has American made. P.M. me if you need info. Just called him, confirmed in stock from size 10 and up. I'm in the L.A. area, but he told me he'll ship.

All those poor unemployed workers.
I will not buy a "made in china" pair of tuffs. Heartbreaking.
