    First disappointment - 11/13/2014

    First item from Orvis that did not meet usual high standards. Appreciate that the boots were a bargain price, but numerous loose threads and a warped inner sole made them unwearable. Returned to Banchory store who were absolutely first rate in their customer service.

    My wife and I both purchased these boots. They are comfortable and the soles work great in the rivers we fish. We bought a size up from our regular size to compensate for the wader booties.

    Bought this pair, reasonably priced, fits well with the Orvis waders purchased earlier. Looks and feels well constructed. Expect to get years of service.

    Love the boots! I wear a 10-10.5 and got an 11. With my sticking foot waders and wool socks they fit perfect. Will get a pair of wading socks to ensure a good fit for summer wet wading. The fact they come with cleats included was an added selling point. I find the laces tough to snap into and out of the top metal hooks but discovered a work around. I just keep the laces in the hook as if they were loops. A few tries and it becomes natural to lace up and down. I almost would say it would have been better to just have holes at the top instead of the hooks. The traction is great: waded in some really fast spring water and had no issues. A huge improvement from my boot foot neoprene cheapies. Love the boots and would highly recommend!

    Do Not Buy! - 3/24/2014
    By: from Rochester, NY

    A poorly designed boot that has absolutely no support on any level. Wearing these boots makes you feel as though you are wearing sneakers on the creek. I returned mine to the Rochester, Orvis retail store where I was insulted by the general manager who did not know the Orvis return policy posted on the Orvis website by the CEO Mr. Perkins. It states, " at any time, for any reason". I wore the boots for an hour. The General Manager displayed poor judgement, lack of knowledge in company policy and the ability to alienate and make customers feel unwanted during my return experience. Do NOT buy this product and do NOT go to the Orvis Rochester retail store.
