White River Fly Shop® Chest-High Lace-Up Boot Breathable Waders for Men
Leaked right out of the box
Right boot area leaked right out of the box on the first wearing, in very cold water. Lucky I was car camping and had my backup pair handy.

High Hopes, but.....
Got these waders about 3 weeks ago. I fish several times per week. First trip out I noticed that one boot deformed (actually caved in) down on to the top of one foot. As you can imagine this made wading pretty uncomfortable and soon rubbed a blister on top of my foot. A couple of weeks of that was soon joined by a wet crotch area. I figure there is still some work to be done on this design.
- Good news.. Took them to BP in Indiana (near Louisville) and without a receipt Chelsea took GREAT care of me and exchanged them for other items with no problems. I wish the store would have carried the G4 Simms in stock as i would have probably jumped on them, but they didn't.
My advice is keep shopping if you are considering these. The attached boot is incredible (except for the collapsing on the foot thing) but the leak is not good. hope this helps!

Just as good
I bought these waders because I had a similar pair for the last 5 years. They wore wonderfully and were very easy to get into. The best part of these waders isb that the feet are wide. I wear a 5x wide shoe and I have room in these waders to spare. No more pinched, squeezed feet while I am trying to fish. Did you ever try to buy a pair of wide wading shoes or boots? Almost impossible. I love these waders.

I bought these for my daughter, who needs a bootfoot wader due to having custom orthotics that go in all her shoes. These are a great compromise, as most bootfoot waders slip and slide on her feet. Being able to lace up the boot portion for a better fit is the best of both worlds and she couldn't be happier. A size 7 would be better but isn't available, so an extra pair of thick socks does the trick.
