Product Test Report: Muck Boot Company’s Reign Supreme Tall Boots
Liz Moyer

 

I am exceptionally picky when it comes to boots. I have worn the same kind of paddock boots for as long as I can remember and have even taken to using the old foot beds from them in my other shoes once I have worn through the soles. Therefore, when I tried the Muck Boot Company’s Reign Supreme Tall boots, I was a little hesitant.

I wanted to give these boots the ‘complete day-in-the-life’ experience. It was a chilly morning, so I was excited to see how warm they were able to keep my feet. Their temperature rating is -20 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and they live up to that expectation. The boots went on at 6 a.m. and didn’t come off until past 10 p.m.and even with thin socks, my toes felt never went numb.

Perhaps the biggest compliment that I can give the Reign Supreme Tall boots is that I forgot I was wearing them. Between feeding, turning out, and doing afternoon chores at a 40+ horse facility, plus a solid eight hours at a desk, any shoes not-up-to-par make themselves known. In the middle of cleaning stalls I looked down and remembered what I was wearing. It caught me a bit off guard since I thought it was too good to be true that Muck Boots could be this comfy. I also definitely dumped an entire water bucket on myself. And my feet stayed dry!

While I don’t spend truthfully that much attention on what my ‘get barn work done’ outfits look like, I do try to appear at least somewhat put together. The Reign Supreme definitely completed my fleece jacket, winter breeches, and hair-shoved-into-a-hat look perfectly. They are surprisingly attractive and don’t appear as clunky as a lot of other winter barn boot options. The buckle at the top is a nice touch and I would wear these out and about without a second thought.

Just A Couple Notes

  • You may want to bring a pair of shoes to change into while driving. The rubbery material that makes the boots so useful makes them a bit clunky to drive in.
  • Don’t wear them when they hay delivery comes. Bits of hay clung to the top fabric section and made for a bit of an amusing surprise when I didn’t notice the horsey snack clinging to them until the next morning when I was wearing them sitting at my desk in the office.

The Muck Boot Company’s Reign Supreme Tall boots will definitely be a staple in my wardrobe this winter. I look forward to seeing how they hold up once the temperature really drops and there is snow on the ground, but I have high hopes that they will live up to all of their promises as they have done so far.

Pick up a pair for yourself or give them as a gift this holiday season.

  1. After of two months of using very similar Muck Boots, the cracks appeared above the ankle thus they are no longer waterproof. Would not recommend just because of the quality of the rubber.

  2. I have been wearing muck boots for 8 years. I love them. I wore out the short pair and got another one. The sole wore thin and so just used them in warmer weather. Mine do not have that kind of top so I use them for all my horse chores. I have used the short ones for riding and when doing yard work and gardening.i have given them for gifts so have multiple family members who wear them. Love the look of this pair.
