Sometimes you do have to throw out the babies with the bath water.

The founder of Mucks sold out years ago with a non-compete that has expired and now has his own line called Dryshods. I bought a pair last year and so far they have held up well and are very comfortable but I don't use them like you guys and gals in the Northern climes. Heck its been so dry this fall that I have only worn them twice.

Only issue I've ever had with Mucks are tearing up the fabric/neoprene when forcing my way through heavy briars. But that happens with any of the neoprene top boots, and it still takes a while for them to actually get a hole. I can get a couple years out of a pair, and that's with some really hard use. But they've reached the price point that I won't buy any more unless on sale.
I did recently discover Tidewe boots as a cheaper alternative. The main difference between the cheaper boots and more expensive boots seems to be the soles. I've bought a few pairs of < $100 rubber boots and the soles are thin with no support at all, and almost zero traction. I bought a pair of Tidewes for my 11 year old and they seem to be made as well as any pair of Mucks I've owned. And under $100.

Look into the Caterpillar line of boots, they pretty much cover any type of boot even muck boots, have been using them for year's, usually get them at Farm & Fleet, think Tractor Supply has them also.
