White River Fly Shop® Extreme Wading Shoes for Men
Don't Expect too much
I was looking for a comfortable and affordable boot that had good grip. I found that in this boot. HOWEVER....on the second outing, one of the boot lace eyelets tore off.....so, not high quality construction - I am disappointed in the boot falling apart on only 2 outings.

These boots are great! I wear a size 12 boot, I ordered a size 12 boot. Wore them in very cold water with 2 pairs of socks( one was thick wool) and the stocking foot of the wader, and was still good to go. Had a little toe wiggle room. Even trying them on without the 2 pairs of socks, the fit was great. I am Very pleased with this purchase! Great traction as well! Was in the Salmon River, slippery rock! Crossed the river 4 times(sketchy!!!) and held fast to what I was stepping on. Buy em, you'll like em.

I purchased these boots early summer to use on the river every once in awhile. I only used them five times and the lace eyelet ripped off. I'm not buying anymore White River products, burned too many times.

Extreme Wading Shoe
This pair of wading boots may be the best I have ever worn. I am 73 years and I fish mostly in Michigan rivers. My piscatorial addiction is to Brown trout, Rainbows and an occasional Brookie 12 months a year. We have the distinct privilege of being able to catch and release all species on certain designated rivers 366 days a year. My balance isn't quite what it used to be and I have fallen victim to my waders suddenly becoming half full of very cold water. I finally got smart and began installing sheet metal screws in the soles of my boots. At the time of my " Epiphany", wading shoes with studs were way out of my allotted fishing budget.
One of my sons-in-law asked me one day if I would recommend a pair of waders and boot combination. That very day we visited the Auburn Hills BPS in Auburn Hills Mi. We talked about the options available and I suggested some White River stocking foot waders, because I wear them and I have been very pleased with their performance. And, because of my "expert" testimony he purchased a pair of White River wading boots to go with the waders. He will get an opportunity to test his new equipment the third week of Oct. when he and I go fishing for some "big, wild, Mich. Salmon.
