Don't go in barefoot.
Whether you're heading into the water on foot or enjoying the lake from your float tube, you'll be glad to have on the Orvis Christmas Island Bootie. Built for times when a traditional wade boot is overkill, this bootie keeps debris and grit out of your footspace while allowing air and water to circulate to keep your foot cool. Ridged rubber grips sand and rocks underfoot as you quietly make your way through the smooth water, and the low-profile design works well with fins if you're floating.

Must Have Flats Boots
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These boots are perfect for flats wading not just in Christmas Island but really any rocky beach where you can do some summer wading or wading in tropical waters.
They take a bit of getting used to if you were expecting something as heavy as river wading boots. These boots are much thinner and fit tightly around the leg above the ankle to prevent gravel, sand and vegetation from getting into the booth. They take a bit to put on but you'll be glad they do given they keep all the debris out of your boot and prevent blisters. Must have for tropics fishing in the flats or off the beach. Don't go barefoot.
Actual size (11) ordered and a perfect.
Ordered and received in less than two days. Backcountry exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be ordering from them again.
Going on a "flats trip" in less than a week and no where in my area could I find--not even two Orvis company stores or my local fly shop. Again a BIG THANKS to Backcountry.
