Nokian boots are pretty hard to find now. But ,I know my nieghbor just got a  new pair, I think from labonvilles, but not sure . I'll find out. I have 3 pairs and only one is in good cond.. They are the best winter boots imo.  There was a place in ONT CAN which had them. try to  google "Nokian Timber "

Labonville has the tall full rubber ones by Viking. I have two pair of them also, one with lug soles and one with calks.

Yep, those viking boots are way too stiff they will abraid the hair off your shins and bunch your sock up around your toes. I have a pair and cut the tops down to where the protection starts, I only wear them to the mail box now..  Guys around here will wear what ever is sold and just be uncomfortable. I guess that goes w/ being a mouth breathing knuckle drager. All the good equpment is just not imported into this country.

With all this rain there is almost no snow left in the woods but lots of ice. I had to do some boundary work today so I wore my calks. Looks like I'll be wearing them for a while till we get more snow.

I wear my viking calked rubber boots with liners in them daily all winter. I like not sliding around when walking on logs and on snowy/icy hills. And should I happen to get bitten by the chainsaw I hopefully won't loose a toe (like a coworker who cut through his leather boot just behind the steel toe cap).

Chaps were making my pants ride down too.  My fix was a couple  of 3", maybe 4" spring clamps so I could attach 'em to my overalls or jeans and suspenders so the straps help keep them up. 

I guess if I had more but and less gut they might stay up better but ,  oh well,  the wife's a good cook and I'd hate to hurt her feelings, right? :D :D

I got a new pair of boots while I was getting my new chaps at Labonville.  The boots are leather w/ kevlar and I belive you can stud them (or get them studed).  The best part was they are made for Labonville by a company out of PA.  It's getting hard to find footwear made in this country anymore, heck most of LL Beans footwear is even imported now.

Do you think those boots are well made. I see they have a nice scuff protector on the toe and they are the only leather boots that would be any good for chainsaw operators as they have the chainsaw protection built in as you say.

Also the price seems quite reasonable compared to those stinky old rubber duck feet boots.

Do they have a lining in them??

Woodhog,

They don't have too much of a liner in them, nothing thats gonna keep you warm for sure.  The only other hitch with the boots is they run a little large size wise.  I normally take a 10 1/2 and I belive I ended up with a 9 1/2 or a 10!
