A Guide to Wader & Wading Boot Sizing

We offer the highest quality waders in the fishing industry.

Wading Boot Sizing

When sizing for wading boots, typically we like to start two sizes up from your normal UK shoe size. This is to accomodate for the added volume needed when wearing waders.

The chart below lists the ORVIS Wading Boot sizing with equivalent shoe sizes. Please use this chart when ordering to ensure an ideal fit. (i.e. Men's UK size 9 would take an ORVIS Men's Wading Boot size 11/Women's UK size 6 would take an ORVIS Women's Wading Boot size 8.)
