These are by far the best value in wading boots I've come across. They are much more comfortable than other (much more expensive) boots that I've owned. I like the fact that I can walk along a river and feel like I'm wearing hiking boots, not rocks on my feet. The only thing I don't like is the shoelace thingies-I don't know what they are called, but they are pretty abrasive, and tear up the laces pretty quickly. I'd suggest that the designers come up with a lower-friction lacing system, such as rings, in order to cut down on having to replace laces.
I live in Colorado and fish both high mountain streams and lakes, as well as warm-water ponds and lakes. These boots are versatile enough to handle both with ease, and work great with float tube fins.
If you catch them on sale, that's even better, but the combination of price and comfort is what sold me on these boots. I'd definitely recommend them, and if I ever wear this pair out, I'll buy another.

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.

This is the easiest boot to take on/off that I have used in 40 yrs of wading the Susquahanna River & it's trout stream tributaries. I have progressed from sneakers-work boots-glued carpet-cheep wading boots-high price wading boots; these midpriced wading boots outperform all others for my needs. Ataboy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Future Bass Master, and Fly Fishing Junkie... 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...
