Wetlander Boots -
By: NYCDM from New York
Well constructed, but the tongue is difficult to tuck in and therefore is bulky when the boot is laced. Very narrow, to the point of approaching discomfort even with light weight socks. I hope they stretch to the point of being very supportive. We'll see the first weekend lugging 100 lbs of camera gear.
Great upland boot -
By: FJett from Lexington,SC
I orderd the Gokey wetlander boat for hunting in the low country in South Carolina. I tryed them out last weekend great boot for quail hunting very comfortable and super traction in muddy fields.
Tough boots aggressive soles -
By: Brule from Northern wisconsin
Bought these boots on sale and after reading several reviews bought them one half size smaller than usual. However they ran pretty much true to size and now I only wear them with light wool socks.They are a little heavy for long upland hunts but are very well made and offer great support… just a fine quality boot.
These are $350 boots??? -
By: 4x4ever from Cleveland, Ohio
I had never owned a pair of Gokey boots before and thought I would try them out, especially on sale for $220. When I received them in the mail I was disappointed. The leather was not uniformly colored and had black spots. The leather also seemed very dry - it did not appear to be waterproofed (even though there is a Gore-Tex liner). Also, the welt was made from plastic and not leather - not something you would see on a high quality boot. I do not think these are truly a moc-toe construction, either. The fit was true to size for me (13D) and I believe the sole would give good traction. Still, these boots struck me as more a $200 retail price, not at $350 quality level at all. Just a suggestion - the top fastener of a boot with speed hooks should be an eyelet to prevent the laces from falling off the hooks over a day of use.
Size is an issue -
By: Mthunter from Lolo, Montana
These boots are comfortable and seem well constructed. Size is a big issue though. The boots are narrow in the toe box. I do not think someone with wide feet would find these comfortable.
Quality boot -
By: Ohioriverman from Centerville OH
Highly recommend, particularly with the extra 20% off. Quality construction that will last a lifetime. I wear a size 10 and ordered a size 9 based upon comments in the reviews. The boot does run true to size. Returned the boots and reordered the size 10 which fits perfectly. Impressive stitching and detail, all brass grommets and superior wicking inside material. Orvis has the best return policy and the boots are a delight.
Not a bad boot! -
By: CTHunter from Greenwich, CT
Wore these for the first time in the field last week. I was very impressed! There were comfortable, warm (without being too hot) and gripped the ground nicely. When bird hunting I want to concentrate on what the dog is telling me and not be distracted by cold, wet feet. I would definitely recommend these to a friend!
Awesome boots -
By: JTGPitt from Pittsburgh, PA
A little snug when I first pulled them on but after a few hours of wear they felt great. Waterproof, tough and comfortable - these boots are a great purchase.
Questionable quality -
By: Snowplow21 from Vidette, GA
Initially the boots were nice and comfortable. After one week of intermittent use, the sole started separating from the bottom of the boot. Fit was fine. A little heavy. I think the use of the Gokey name in the description is a little deceptive. Expensive for what you get. Customer service was great when dealing with the return.
Also consider the Kangaroo Uplander -
By: WhitetailHunter from South Carolina
A world-class boot with no competition for the price. Unfortunately, the Wetlanders run /12 to 1 full size large and had to return them because they were too large and size 9 was not available until 3 months later. As an alternative, ordered the Orvis Kangaroo Uplander boot and it is equal to or better than the Wetlander. The Kangaroo is extremely lightweight (much lighter than the (Wetlander) and identical to Wetlander except for sole pattern. I understand Gokey makes the Orvis line, which explains the world-class quality of the Kangaroo Upland boot. The Wetlander, is a terrific boot, extremely comfortable, just heavier and has a more aggressive tread.
