sizing note for stockingfoot waders
I bought a pair of these to go over a pair of 3 mm stockingfoot waders. My foot/shoe size is 11 and with the waders on and a size 12 flats boot I could barely get my foot in. They are also very narrow. If you are going to use these as cover for 3 mm waders then you will want to go at least 2 sizes over shoe size. If your not going to put them over waders then they are almost true sized. These boots need to be made in a wider version.

i like these boots they keep water out i use them for kayaking i have a sit on top kayak and at times i fish with my feet in water and these boots keeo my feet dry and the neoprene matirial keeps my feet cool when in the water. also a good value for the money.

I love the idea of this style, but when they sell stocking-foot waders in shoe size 13 it is surprising they do not offer Flats Boots larger than 13 and not even in wide sizes. Ended up needing a size 15 in a normal river boot.
New to fly fishing, so I probably should have held out for waders with size 14 boots attached (again, few available).

I bought these to wear over stocking foot waders, and inside Force Fins for my float tube or pontoon. They are easy to put on... easiest if you wet the inside first, and easier to put into my fins than the felt sole booties I had been using. I don't think the adjustment strap has much to do at this point, but I suppose that it might be handy if the top of the boot ever stretches. The zipper is on the inside of the boot (above the ankle bone) so it is easy to reach when you cross your legs to zip them. I wear a size 12 shoe, and bought size 13 booties. They are perfect with the stocking foot waders.
I'll get these again when they wear out.

Cheap shoes I need 13 wide. I bought stocking-foot waders in shoe size 13 and ended up buying size 15 wader boots (flats boots not available larger than 13. Size 13 stocking foot has lots of extra room that translates into added material bunching in the boots. Probably better to get waders with size 14+ boots attached.
I wear a size 11 shoe and use these in a size 13, which is the largest. That gives me plenty of room for thick socks and stockingfoot waders. So not sure they'll work for you. I will say that they are much roomier in width than the similar Caddis shoe, that I could not wear. Yet they still fit in my covered toe fins. I think a size 13 might work for you, but it might not be enough if you wear thick socks and wader stockings.
Absolutely perfect for extended wear........... The boots are water proof as long as you keep water depth in check.

These will not stop water from reaching your feet. They work well on top of a stocking foot wader and will fit in a covered toe float tube fin. I would not use them to fish a rocky river or for extended hiking. Great for sandy beach fishing or float tubing though.
The boots are primarily neoprene in construction. They do not have a great deal of support for walking over dry land. I would not use mine for a primary show. As long as you do not wade over the top of the show......it should stay dry.
the flats boot is all i wear while tube'n. they are super comfortable. go one size larger to fit over stocking foot waders. would also be great for wade'n in streams with no break'n time. great price also.
These work great with stockingfoot waders and covered toe fins, such as those made by the Creek Company (what I own). A similar fin is sold by Bass Pro Shops. I wear an 11 shoe and use these in a size 13. Plenty of room for wool socks and wader stockingfoot without pinching. And still fits in my fins comfortably (have to wiggle the fin a bit to get them off though).
I think that they would be great for that. The soles would provide great traction on the boat deck, and being neoprene in construction they would be waterproof too. Plus, they are very easy on and off.
I don't think a Stingrays Barb could penetrate these boots but not 100% sure of it.............. I think you would find that a ray would hit you with a barb if stepped on above the boot line................

I'm no expert, but I would think a sting ray barb could penetrate the soft sides of these.
Yes. They are not armor plated, just neopreme and a semi hard rubber sole. There are other boots designed for stingray protection. Just walk fairly slow and shuffle your feet along the bottom, the rays will usually scoot away before you can step on them.
Absolutely 100%........... I have 4 pair of these. Two for salt water and Two for fresh water....................

These are great for fishing sandy beaches and for float tubing. I would not use these on a rocky river or for extended hiking around boulders. Get a sturdier river wading boot for that. Something that will protect your feet and ankles and give you a good grip on slippery rocks and boulders. I still use felt bottoms for that although I will replace those with something less susceptible to spreading invasive species when they wear out.
This is how I use mine. They are a little slippery but it is easier to keep your balance since they are lightweight and you can feel the bottom. I will say mid size rocks can be felt in the arches and can hurt a little.
Some of the manufactures have a size conversion chart included in the BPS catalog. Otherwise you will have to try trial and error at the store[most women can relate to this procedure] or check with your fishing friends with a physical shoe size close to yours.
I can't answer your question directly, but I know that mine are not overly wide, so I would think you could find your corresponding mens size and be satisfied. Remember you socks and waders will add bulk.
I have a pair of Breathable Stocking-Foot Waders. I would like to buy a pair of these to wear over my waders as I'm kayaking for stripers, etc. My waders are size 11. Will a size 11 Flats Boot fit or will I have to get a larger size? The wading shes I have were designed to fit so it was a no brainer but I don't wan't to order the wrong size and then have to return them.
These boots fit true to size. In order to fit over the neoprene bootie of your waders, you will need to order at least one size up from your normal shoe size. If the bootie has a lot of "slack" around your foot, you may need two sizes up.
Buying the same size that you wear in a wader boot is a good place to start.
If either one of the Bass Pro Shops stores in Virginia is near your home, trying the different sizes of this boot on to find the perfect fit would be your best bet, especially if you will ever use them by themselves out in the surf.
