I am trying to decide what Hunting footwear to use on my next safari in April, 2020. Courtney boots get the nod from a classic angle and perhaps functionality. Yet, in watching many videos I see well known experienced hunters using many other types and brands. I do have the frugality gene (German Dutch ethnics often have it!) . On one trip my luggage was lost for four days and I hunted in some cheap running shoes because that is all I had. They actually worked quite well—softer soles often mean quieter stalking. Yet I was removing thorns from the soles each evening! I just spent an hour paging throughall the footwear material on Midway’s site. Various Merrill brand Moab models look interesting and cost between about $80 and $150. So, do I bite the bullet and spend $300 to $400 for Courtney ‘s or get something like Merrill’s? Thanks in advance. By the way I will be hunting Namibia in the Kalahari withUitspan—Tiene and Michael Duvenhage.
