In our last rain boot review, the LaCrosse Hampton was a Top Pick for Mild Use, due to its casual looks and comfortable fit. We initially intended to test that boot again and to see how it measured up to another batch of rain boots. However, during the first week of testing, we found out that the Hampton was being discontinued, so we decided to check out the newer version. We found that the new Alpha Muddy was significantly different, and changed a number of things that we had already grown to like about the original Hampton (even in just one week of use). After testing the new model extensively, we ultimately decided that the original Hampton was a significantly better model for our feet types. However, if your feet are wider or higher volume, this (and the Baffin Enduro) will provide a better fit than most of the other boots in this test.
But if your foot is a standard D width, and you're looking for a low boot, you'd be best suited by the Bogs Carson (which we think is even better than the old Hampton!). And if you want the best weather protection money can buy, and you just accidentally clicked on this low boot, go take a look at the mighty Arctic Sport.
