One size too small

I consistently wear a womens size 7. I ordered this mens boot one size down as instructed. It was too small. I reordered a mens size 7 and it fit fine. I haven't worn them kayaking yet, but I wanted to go ahead and leave the sizing tip. They are comfortable and appear well made.

Boundary Boot Works Well

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'm scheduled to take these boots on a 65-mile, 8-day Boundary Waters canoeing and portaging expedition in August 2014. That will be the final test on their quality, although I've already walked with them six miles in the Shenandoah National Park, crossing 20 streams and covering 2,000 ft. of elevation gain. They performed well and I didn't get any blisters. They performed well and feet didn't get hot, even though temperatures were in the upper 60s and 70s. I'm pleased with the purchase and believe they will do well in BWCA. I wear size 12 shoe normally, and Boundary boot fitting seems true to size.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These boots are totally water proof. I use them to kayak in the fall and early spring and I can get right into the water before I step into the kayak without ANY water getting inside. PERFECT. Also surprisingly comfortable. I find myself wearing them for a dog walk when I get off the lake instead of taking them off and putting shoes on! Highly recommend.

Cold Weather Canoe Boots

Excellent craftsmanship, high quality materials, and, they make you look cool when you wear them! These boots have been totally waterproof for me. The velcro strap really keeps them on your feet when you need them. I wear them with wool hiking socks and they really keep my feet warm and dry. Score!

I hesitated making this purchase because of the numerous customer complaints about leaks. In the end it was brand loyalty to NRS that tipped the scales. Turns out they are typical NRS quality and fit well. There was room for heavy wool socks, which provided great insulation. The velcro strap does an excellent job of snugging.

One of the few consistently unpleasant things about cold-weather canoeing is the necessity of getting my feet wet and often muddy entering and exiting the boat. Wish I would have bought these boots long ago.

How is the width of these boots compared to other brands? I have a fairly wide size 12 foot and am having trouble finding boots that fit into a touring kayak and offer the width I need. Thanks –

Positive Review NRS Boundary Shoe

Well, I got these for the wife and they fit perfectly. Haven't used them in the water yet. At this price, they were hard to resist. I did get a pair for myself but returned them, because I got skinny legs and wouldn't cinch up enough around the calfs. Instead I returned them. Backcountry people were real helpful with the return.

Unanswered Question

We are traveling via air to our wondered how much these weigh? (women's size 8, Men's size 12) also is the bottom also non-skid or will they leave marks? (we're sailing, and then dingying and tramping..would like one boot to serve all purposes..this looks great...)

a little wet

Unfortunately my boots leaked and I will be returning them to get another pair. I'm going to give them another chance since it seems that they have worked for other people. They were comfortable so hopefully the next pair will not let my feet get wet.

Boot Love

I bought these boots because I often (always) have to steady the canoe for my wife and kids when they board. They refuse to learn how to board properly, and I just wanted to get paddling and avoid the wrath of my wife's German ancestry; so now I have these boots. They solved my problem and also happen to be super comfy. I use them when kayaking, too. They keep my feet warm and toasty, and my kids think I got them from ninjas. Well, I sort of told them that.
I found that the size tens were true to size (thought I'd sneek something useful in).

I have been wearing scuba boots in my kayak, but want to move to something with more sole for portage, etc. I wear no socks with my scuba boots and notice the mention of socks with these NRS boots. Are socks needed, optional, or what? I think that would effect sizing, too.

Responded on

Socks are purely for comfort and warmth. If you have had not problems with blisters or cold feet with your previous boots, dont wear them. If you are worried about getting blisters with these, just order half a size up and wear some thin hiking socks.

Solid Product

Got a chance to try them this weekend and they fit and worked great. Before I received the boots I was concerned by one reviewer who suggested to get a size larger. I'm glad I didn't because my boots were actually on the loose side, which is great for when I need to slip on those wool socks. I have 17" calves and these boots were able to comfortably accommodate them plus my paddling pants tucked inside. I was actually more comfortable having these on paddling than having on my Tevas or being barefooted. Just need to remember that these boots were made for flexibility so do be cautious walking around in them during loading and portages. And Yes, they kept my lower extremities dried as promised. I had to load in about 15" of water and it was exposed to rained for my 6 hours of fishing. The best part was my feet didn't feel clammy and sweaty even with plain cotton blend sports socks on. This is a superb product from NRS, and offered them at the best price I found on the net.......with free shipping to boot! Thanks guys!!!

I normaly take a size 7.5shoe. I've been told to allow for heavy socks when ordering the NRS Boundary Shoe. Would I be better off with the size 9 or would the size 8 be sufficient to allow for the heavy socks? Thanks.

Responded on

A 9 would be way too big. Usually you just size up by a half size to a whole size.

How's the ankle support in these shoes?

Responded on

These are designed so you can stretch out your feet and ankle to minimize fatigue and numbness, so they will not have anywhere near the ankle supports of rigid hiking boots.
