I'm going on my first party boat and don't want to splurge on a pair of deck boots just yet but seeing all the action on the boats I want to wear a pair of Red Wing 875 to protect my feet and perhaps keep them dry.

anyone have any thoughts on this?

You splurged on a pair of red wings already at about 280 bucks.Why ruin them with water and salt ? Try Walmart for a pair of 15 dollar rubber boots.

    Wrong tool for the job. Blood, scales, smashed bait, deck hose... that calls for rubber boots not leather and laces.

    By all means splurge. Xtratuffs are essential.

    whichever has the longest bunk
    The only people that I've seen wear Red Wing and other leather boots on the boats were lesbian. They were also really good fisherwomen, so that was fine with me, I admire skill wherever I encounter it. I just learned to give them some space around the bait tank, and not rush them about picking a sardine.

    Shoot I usually wear my old pair of adidas. Yeah sometimes I end up with wet socks. Just started working at a fish market distributor. Noticed that part of the uniform is some tuff boots. Might buy a pair since it's going to be a work expense.

    White Boots
    Song by The Vaughan Brothers


    Lyrics
    That's my baby in the white boots, that's my baby on the floor
    That's my baby having some fun, and yelling more, more, more
    That's my baby in the short skirt, woo, out of control
    Ah, she becomes another woman, when she rocks and rolls
    She's having a good time, going round and round
    She's really ripping it up, you know she can't sit down, oh no
    That's my baby looking so good, ou know I can't explain
    How when she's dancing in the white boots, it makes her go insane
    She's having a good time, going round and round
    She's really rippin' it up, you know she can't sit down, oh no
    That's my baby in the short skirt
    With the white boots on
    That's my baby in the white boots, that's my baby on the floor
    That's my baby having some fun, and yelling more, more, more
    She's having a good time, going round and round
    She's really rippin' it up, you know she can't sit down, oh no
    That's my baby in the short skirt
    With the white boots on
    With the white boots on
    In the short skirt
    With the white boots on
    Can't explain, you know I can't explain
    How when she's dancing in the white boots, it makes me go insane
    White boots, white boots
    White boots, white boots
