Some other materials like synthetic weaves and nylon are woven tightly hence they create a stiff and dense fabric which acts as a cover which is difficult to penetrate by snake fangs.
The design of the boot should be such that it fits your feet perfectly and you are comfortable with moving around since you will be usually wearing them for longer periods.
Since the boots are long, they should be easy to put on without the trouble of tying laces. The closures should be zippers, Velcro straps or buckles which are easy and fast to put on. If they are slip-ons then you don’t have to worry about closures.
Proper air circulation is necessary so that the feet don’t sweat.
