White River Fly Shop Wading Boots for Men
Poor Quality boot
I bought them last year while they were on sale for about $50. Now i wish i would have spent the extra 20 on somthing better. Ive been through 4 pair of laces already! I have not had the felt sole fall off yet but im sure that is about to happen.
I think they should recall this product and let people trade in their boots for a better pair!!!
The eyelets for the laces are way too sharp and dont allow you to get these boots tight. The eyelets are lined with sharp plastic and i am not sure why they did this. Might have been better off lining them with pieces of metal.

Tough wading boot....
What can i say...I've put them to the test thru slimy rocks, weeds, brush, mud, and ice... and they handled it all well...The stitching for the felt and for the soles was well done and has remained in tact throughout their use. The boots are sturdy and comfortable to stand in, for long periods without feeling discomfort...
Definitely the best bang for the buck..A great pair of wading boots that were made to take punishment...

Good boots until they fell apart!
I purchased these boots almost a year ago to wear while hunting for fossil shark teeth along the Chesapeake Bay. I go out once or twice each week, so the boots saw some pretty heavy usage. They always had a problem with the laces breaking, but now the boots have completely fallen apart. The soles have come apart, but even worse, the leather on the heel, at the point where it meets the rubber, has worn/rotted completely away, leaving gaping holes which allow all kinds of shell, gravel, sand, etc. to enter the boot. I was happy with these boots for the first 6 months that I owned them, but I expected them to be more durable.

Graduated up to these from rubber waders. Used with neoprenes this summer in Colorado on the Taylor and Gunnison and in New Mexico on the upper Pecos. Fishing was best I had seen on the Pecos in 25 years, by the way. Fantastic grip with the felt soles on the rock bottoms of these freestone rivers. Much better stability than the hard rubber soles I was used to. Highly recommend. Easy to take off and on, dried quickly. Good grip on muddy banks too.
