That's what I do with my shell boots and consider it money well spent (though, admittedly, I bought mine on sale.) It's a coarse material suited to such tasks. They've been quite resilient to the abuse, though I found the shell met its match when up against a shovel. Right now my shell boots are sitting outside without trees, the poor things. It's a sad life for nice boots.
