Just bought a pair of these as i've been wanting a snake boot for a while.


Very comfortable, and give a little piece of mind in snake country.


I wonder if any folks on here use them, and have any suggestions for socks to utilize with them?


I'm not a snake hunter or anything, but plan to use for archery and tromping around Moshannon Forest during warm weather.


I appeciate any thoughs.

I wear Copper Fit tall compression socks (Walmart in the sporting goods section by soccer and football, etc) as a liner and a merino wool snake boot sock from Bass Pro/Redhead with mine. The snake boot socks cushion. The Copper Fit socks create a rub zone between the socks rather than between the skin and the sock, preventing 99.9% of any chance of blisters. ANNNND...……...after a long day of walking...……...take the Copper Fit socks off and your feet feel cool and tingly and nice.

Lace your Vaprtreks snugly (not tightly) in the foot and ankle and more loosely as you go up so as to not have them bind at the calf. Pretty much the same for any snake boot.

Quite welcome, sir !!

You're gonna LOVE the Vaprtreks. I describe them as being 17" running shoes.

I'd probably do an online search and purchase of the Copper Fit socks. They REALLY seem to make a difference at the end of a long day.

I’ve been using BPS ( redhead) snake boot socks for years. Nice and high, and moisture wicking. Great for warm weather wear. And not too expensive.
