Awesome affordable boots!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
While some may dislike the felt bottoms, for invasive species transmission, its easy to get around this by thoroughly washing these boots after use.
And i find that the felt has significant traction in a lot of stoney areas.
They fit great, the are easy to get on and are affordable!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I recently got a pair of these boots. I have used them a few times so far and I have to admit they are much more comfortable than I expected from a cheaper boot. Another plus to these boots is they are quite light weight. For the price you would be hard pressed to find another boot on the market that is this comfortable and lightweight.
The felt bottoms offer excellent grip on slick moss covered rocks. The rubber toe offers protection as well as keeps the toe of the boot from getting too beat up when you are hiking down to your favorite hole.
I have these in a size 10 and they fit very well. I normally am a size 9.5 street shoe and though the 9 may have fit the 10 offers enough room for thick warm socks and is not too large by any means. I would recommend going up a half to full size from your street shoes in this boot to accommodate for additional insulation when the temps drop.
Can you recommend a size for me? I'm a 12.5/13, and I will only use the boots with waders w/ neoprene socks. I'm thinking a 14. Thoughts?
I would go a size up from your normal shoe based upon the fact you will only use waders with neoprene socks. I think the 14 should be spot on if you normal shoe size is a 13, and will also give you room in case you end up fishing during colder days. Shoot me an email with any questions.
