Sturdy, light boot -
These boots are comfortable & super light weight. Also, very easy to clean. I ordered my shoe size (9) & they fit great over my wader sock feet. I would give these boots 5 stars, but I only wore them twice, so I don't know how well they will hold up over time (though my old Orvis boots lasted a LONG time).

Great Boots! -
Bought these and used them for the first time! They have a great grip, no slipping (even on slimy rocks), and easy to walk in!
Wading Boots -
By: stampnjoan from Louisville, KY
I was really unsure of the size so I called Orvis and the person helped me so much to find the correct size of boot for my waders. I tried them out yesterday and was able to walk and climb out of the creek with the spikes. I am so happy with my purchase. Can't wait until I fish again.
Perfect for holding your ground -
I found the boots easy to get on and off. the were comfortable to wear the whole day and held the ground well. Once I found my footing in the river I held my ground! Listen to the recommendation of taking a size smaller than shoe size-they run big!
Need in Alaska -
Purchased as a gift for my wife, great fit, necessary for Alaska, new law, NO felt soles anywhere.
Most comfortable ever -

Freddy Flintstone -

The boots should be ordered one size SMALLER than you normally wear . If you have a low volume foot you will discover that you need a "Fred Flintstone" foot to wear these!! (I am a size 7, b width narrow heel.) I have ordered the size smaller hoping they will work.....
Help Stem the Spread of Aquatic Invasives — Inspect, Clean, & Dry Your Gear.
As the threat of Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) such as New Zealand mud snails and Didymo grows, anglers wonder what’s the best way to care for gear to help stem their spread.
“The best way to care for your gear to prevent the spread of aquatic invasives is to
* Chemicals used to clean gear are harsh on gear and environmentally harmful. Orvis and most leading conservation organizations do not recommend them.
Felt-soled wading boots - one source of the spread of ANS
While birds, wildlife, and outdoor pursuits other than angling can carry ANS from watershed to watershed, we anglers play a part. Felt soles on wader boots are the primary concern of anglers, as they make the most contact with the river bottom where ANS live. Combine that with felt being absorbent and slow to dry, and they become the #1 carrier of ANS due to angling.
The Innovative Design of River Guard Wading Boots with EcoTraX™ Soles
Our new River Guard Wading Boots with EcoTraX™ Soles help stem the spread of ANS because ANS can’t cling to them as well as to felt. EcoTraX soles also dry exponentially faster than felt, which can take days to dry thoroughly enough for absorbed ANS to die.
New EcoTraX sole treads, exclusive to Orvis, have special sharp edges on the lugged cross pattern to grab better than other rubber soles. We include PosiGrip™ screw-in studs, so you get the best traction in varied conditions for added safety.
While there’s no panacea to stop the spread of ANS, new River Guard boots go a long way to help.
“Our higher purpose as a company is to introduce our customers to the natural world;
Wash invasives away! Rubber soles make washing off invasive species far easier. The smooth non-absorbent surface, unlike felt that absorbs water and spores that can remain in it for weeks on end, gives spores and the like no place to take root or “hide.’’
