undefinedMost of us are not lucky enough to hunt in our back yards, which means we have to drive to our honeyholes. Whether the trip is 10 minutes or two hours, trying to negotiate the highway while wearing bulky hunting boots can get real interesting. The soles of my size 13 knee-high rubber boots span the gap between the gas and brake pedals, and stepping on one while avoiding the other requires fancy footwork. I don't even think about trying it with waders.

Instead, I wear a pair of RedHead XTR Moc IIs from Bass Pro Shops during my travels to and from the field. The no-lace design lets me slip them on as I head out the door with an armload of gear. These babies are built for comfort with a padded lining and insole. The no-fuss and comfort factors also make the mocs great for flying, especially during long flights where you can easily slip them off to relax your feet.

But don't mistake the XTR mocs for bedroom slippers. They have a thick, cleated rubber outsole that can handle the outdoors, which makes them my favorite for knocking around camp. I also wear them to the range and have made a few quick scouting trips with them on my feet. The mocs have a suede exterior, which benefits from a shot of waterproofing spray, such as Atsko Water-Guard Extreme, if you anticipate wet weather.

The only problem with the RedHead XTR mocs is once you put them on, you may not want to take them off. But then again, Native Americans hunted in moccasins and a similar style does come in camo ... .
