Irish Setters while it cold. When the snakes are crawling, I use Rocky Snake Boots.

If I wear boots it’s usually Danners.   But a lot of the time I wear crocs or tennis shoes.
If I'm not back in five minutes, wait longer!

I've tried many snake boots. Chippewas, Danners, Rocky's, LaCrosse, Redhead. I found the Readhead side zip camo snake boots to be my favorites, and have worn them for years. They're lightweight and comfortable, and they hold their waterproofing as well or better than the others, but they're getting hard to find. I think they may have stopped making them. I needed a new pair for this spring and couldn't find them, so I had to get a similar pair of Rocky's. I mainly hunt in Dixie, so snake boots are a must.
For cold weather hunts, I have a pair of 2000 gram Thinsulate regular hunting boots. If it's cold enough for those boots, the snakes won't be active.

Early season if still cold and not too muddy I wear my Keen boots that I wear daily.  Once it warms up or starts getting sloppy my Much snake boots go on the rest of the season.  They are a bit stiff but I'll take protection and dry feet over snake bites and wet feet any day!

Grew up turkey hunting in and around The Big Cypress Swamp, as well as, Fisheating Creek back home. Always wore a pair of old school converse hightops or old sneakers. Wading water, no matter how deep, was inevitable. Never hunted a pair of "hiking" boots till I moved up here to these SE TN mountains. My Danner Pronghorns are tough to beat in this high country. Muck Wetlands stay in my truck all season for when either wet or heavy dew. 
I ain't got to hear 'em gobble to know he is there.
