Dendrology isn't all research papers, counting fossilized tree rings, and studying botanical species from the safety of a classroom it also involves mud up to your ankles, the crisp sound of songbirds in the forest canopy, and a ceaseless awe of the woodland thicket ecosystem. So while you're mucking through mossy coppice and fallen evergreens, just know you can count on the waterproof durability of the Hunter Boots Women's Field Huntress Boot to get you through the day, comfortably of course. Different from last year's edition, the Huntress features a redesigned upper pattern that flatters with genteel ease. Crafted with a supple, rubber construction, this boot provides the utmost waterproof protection necessary for trekking through the timbered backwoods while the sturdy argyle sole ensures ample traction in slick situations. What is most notable is that the Huntress differentiates itself from the pack with its slightly shorter leg length and slightly wider instep both ultimately prevent unwanted pinching and discomfort. The semi matte finish not only ensures versatility, but it establishes a classic patina that evokes imagery of elegant royalty and down to earth character.
