I stopped wearing those, obviously, and went back to the Muck Boots. But now the Muck's have more holes, and it's raining, and I have to walk around muddy fields. So I tried the Noble's again to see if maybe they'd work now, it's been a couple months and its not as hot and I'm not as sweaty. Big, fat, no. Just like the big weeping rash on my calf. I'm currently alternating letting it dry in the open and wrapping it with gauze and vet wrap. So I went out and bought a new pair of Muck's that only come half way up my calf as to not irritate it. Hopefully these last longer than 10 months. If anyone has a pair of muck boots they recommend that last a long time and have a big calf let me know!
