I have always used cheap hiking shoes (Hitec, Cabelas). Figured I could just buy a new pair every season. I'm really wondering if it's worth the money to buy a good pair of hunting boots. Does it really make a difference? I've had no problems with foot or back fatigue with my cheap boots. Will i notice the difference? I'm looking at trying a pair of Lowa Ranger GTX this year if i make the switch. Anyone using these boots? How do they hold up?
