    I didn’t know that snakes wore boots.

    People used to use a section of stove pipe slipped on the lower legs for 360 degree snake bite protection.

    Most all boots are snake proof. Snakes can’t bite through boot leather. What you need is snake proof gaiters. Then you are protected from your feet to your knees. They are comfortable and easy to put on.
    Out of curiosity OP where are you going that you feel you need such snake proofing?

    I have a pair of Redhead boots, but I can go ahead and tell you theres not gonna be many good snake boots out there that meet the "comfortable walking hillsides or uneven terrain" category. Snake boots are exactly what you'd imagine; a massive stiff one piece boot that limits most of your movement from the knee down. They don't exactly bend and crease as you'd imagine, so they're extremely uncomfortable for any type of walking more than 1/4 mile. I'd go for a set of reputable gaiters over your favorite hiking boot for any long-term solution, and boots for the short-term slip on to do a small task type of solution.

    I’d look at lacrosse rubber boots, some are snake proof.

    In Texas the gold standard is Chippewa snake boots, followed by boots built with turtle skin. I mostly wear gators from Turtle Skin.

    X2 on the Chippewa. I have had Rocky, danner, lacrosse, but the Chippewa is my favorite. Probably 10 yrs old and are still in good shape
