The best lineman hiking-hunting boot for groundman
A lot of the guys swore by their Kenetrek lineman boots, but I'd say the Meindl plain toe ground boot is just as good if not better overall. Roomy front/toe box but secure heel. I did a short climb with Buckingham gaffs and the Meindls were fine. I'm sure the steel toe version with metal shanks are better for being on your gaffs for a while, but this boot is perfect for ground work, and short or quick climbing.
