Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I am new to fly fly fishing and the equipment and wanted to find a pair of wading boots that didn't feel humongous on me and allowed me to have a better feel for the terrain I was walking on above and under the water. I received these boots and have worn them 3 times and LOVE them! They fit my feet nicely, I normally wear an 8.5 to 9 shoe and bought these in a size 10. The first time wearing them they seemed to have loosened up some by the time I left the river but that may have been from not tying them snug enough. I didn't notice this the past times I wore them. The last 3 times I have worn them, they have been comfortable, dry and easy to maneuver in (as sometimes my balance gets thrown off in the river, rocks, sand, etc.) I definitely felt more confident wading in these boots. They feel almost like a hiking boot. They were easy and light weight for the walk to the river and my feet stayed dry. They were much easier to get my foot into and out of than the first pair of boots I had, much easier to lace up and tie (for some reason). I haven't put them through the ringer just yet, but will. I absolutely LOVE these boots and for me, they were well worth the extra money!!
