Jungle boots by design and intended use have vent holes on the side to help moisture (sweat) get out and also if you step in a puddle or w/e it will drain.
As for me, I still have my hiking boots that I started with (although beat up from playing, hiking, camping, etc.) but I recently picked up a used pair Magnum Storm II's for cheap and love them.
Also I know that Converse is usually associated with skateboarders and the like but the Converse "Tactical" boots are actually really comfy and at a reasonable price too. Personally I like midtop 6" boots instead of 8" boots but it's up to you in the end. The converse boots I know should go around as low as $80 USD for a pair.
