White River Fly Shop ECO-CLEAR Wading Boots for Men
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!"

Better than recommended product
I recently bought a pair of these for myself and my son to canoe the boundary waters. A jungle boot had been suggested but I thought these looked good. After a nine day trek my boots and my feet held up much better than some of those whose jungle boots were falling apart. My sons boots did well but with my 225 pound frame and canoe portages I was concerned but not any reason to worry. I expect to get more use from my boots, my son will probably outgrow his before they wear out.

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.
