White River Fly Shop® ECO-CLEAR™ Wading Boots for Men
I bought a pair of these and when I got home to see how they fit with my waders, one of the metal lace hooks broke right off. Possible factory defect, but I'm glad I didn't drive all the way out to my spot to find this problem. I'd say spend another $20 and get korkers.

Boots Came apart Day 1
"Bought these last week to replace my 5 year old Orvis boots that were beginning to look a bit tired after over 100 days fishing.
The new Bass Pro Shop boots literally fell apart on Day 1. The sole on one of the boots came loose! This was compounded by the fact that the new Bass Pro waders I'd purchased with the boots leaked out of the box. Upon examination, it is clear that some of the inside seams had not been glued well, or at all. Fortunately I had brought my old waders and boots and was able to finish the trip with them. Needless to say, I'm ecstatic that I saved my receipt and both items will be returned. I'll go back to my 5 year old Orvis waders and boots that actually work!"

Good Boot For Ponds
I use these boots to fish ponds with sandy or silt bottoms. I wouldn't purchase them for fishing rocky streams (as a felt bottom works well for this) and for the folks who claim they are slippery, they need to either research products or ask BPS staff what boots work for specific applications. Mine work great for where I use them. Only downside would be the weight---just a bit heavy. But since I didn't spend hundreds on them, I don't expect them to be extremely lightweight.

Good Salt Water Boot
I have a size 9 and 1/2 shoe so I bought a size 10 boot. Good fit with the waders. I use them in Salt water around oyster bars, mud and sand on the flats fly fishing for tailing reds. Tested them last week on the rock jetties and didn't find them slippery at all. Maybe they changed the sole? Comfortable boot that I can wear for long walk on the flats. Would have given it a five rating but they need to hold up for more than one year in the salt water environment.
