For you Courteney Boot wearers...
What Tread do you prefer, their Tire tread or Ripple tread and why?
I ordered a set from Courtney with the cleated sole; because I want them for USA and Australia hunting and did so after experiencing some of the same frustrations Rookhawk mentioned with the tread sole.
This weekend I was wearing mine in Limpopo walking behind a hunter on point for sable. I particularly noticed that my ripple sole Courteneys were quieter than his hiking style boots, but I didn't notice what type of sole his had.I much prefer the ripple sole as well...
My wife has a pair with the ripple sole and a pair with the tire tread.. she also prefers the ripple sole..
I agree they pick up a lot of recycled plant material left behind by antelope as well. When I left the Kalahari I spent a couple of hours cleaning the crap out of the treads so ag didn’t take them and then passing through customs in Dallas they asked what I had in the bag and I said boots and the guy just said have a nice day.I find the tire tread does pick up a lot of gravel where I used them .
