Good Entry level Boot -
First purchase of a wading boot. Seems perfectly serviceable for the price. Men's size 9 is fine on my women's size 10 foot. Would like to see Orvis make a women's specific boot at an entry level price point. We are, after all, an increasingly large part of your market!

I bought these boots to go with my endura waders and what a brilliant product they are. Very light, but sturdy and the felt sole grips slippery rocks very well. I will be purchasing the studs for extra traction.
Best boot for the price -

Bought this boot because I had a gift card to spend. I wasn't expecting much at this price point but they proved me wrong. Extremely durable, fast draining, and unbelievably light. Not to mention very comfortable as well. Why spend 3 times as much on a boot when the encounters are just as good if not better?

For the price these can't be beat! Super light and well constructed.
poor quality -
By: chuckdan from Spotsylvania VA
Originally purchased these boots in Jan 2014. By September 2014 the weep hole screens rusted out causing excessive debris to enter boot and partial sole separation. Orvis was very generous and gave me another pair in exchange in October 2014. After my last trip this week, I walked through a muddy area, and experienced complete sole separation from one boot. I had to reach into the mud to get the sole out...I recommend something different. Not worth ruining a trip over.
Encounter Wading boots rock! -

These boots are spectacular. They fit perfectly if you buy a size or two larger to allow for multiple pairs of wool socks and the grip is like walking on a dry sidewalk. I bought two pair.

This is a review of the wonderful, courteous service we received. Only one boot came originally, but the Orvis staff acted quickly to find the mate and ship it to us pronto. It was such a pleasure to speak with intelligent, caring people. Thank you!!

Great boots for the price. Very well made, fit well, and hold up great! Good grip on slick rocks.
