ORVIS PRO WADING BOOT - In an industry-first collaborative effort with Michelin, Orvis introduces the PRO Wading Boot. Built on an outsole compound specifically designed for fly fishing, this revolutionary new sole design is an industry disrupting advance in wet rubber traction. The Michelin Outdoor Extreme outsole offers 25% better abrasion resistance and a resounding 43% improvement in wet rubber traction. Using Michelin tire geometry, it offers a wider footprint for stability, a higher ratio of surface contact, and a lug pattern that reduces shock and improves pressure distribution. The two-layer midsole has a co-molded ESS plate that provides improved stud retention and torsional stability. The shock absorbing Phylon midsole improves “river feel” and compresses less than standard EVA midsoles. Orvis partnered with Ortholite to create a 3D molded X25 insole designed for high-impact sports, delivering maximum comfort and arch support. An industry first cast PU upper eliminates seams while providing a zoned cage for added stability, grip, and extreme abrasion resistance without the added bulk. The boot is higher cut for ankle support and lined with closed-cell foam. Scratch rubber at the toe cap and heel for abrasion resistance, an oversized heel pull for easier on-and-off, and tightly woven laces reduce broken laces. Imported. Weighs 50 oz. in size 10. Men's whole sizes 7-14. Men order one size up. Women's equivalent sizes 8-15. Women order down one size (Ex: Women's size 8 order size 7.)

Reviewer: from Saugerties, NY

I'm 72 years old, have a bad back, and love fly fishing. So I set out trying to find a pair of wading boots that would be comfortable and offer a lot of support. I happened upon a video review made by a New Zealand fly fishing guide (Alex Waller). The video is titled "Orvis Pro Wading Boots Review (Hands-on & Tested)". Time 8:40. His presentation is very energetic, enthusiastic, entertaining and worth watching. He sold me on them. Some of the highlights of his review are that these boots are sturdy, structurally sound, give good ankle support, are comfortable, lightweight, drain well, have a substantial pull on loop, and have good solid soles. I agree with all of that. They have ports for studs and Feather-Craft sells them. Of course you sacrifice quietness with the studs but with a bad back - I can live with that. Besides, I fish mostly in heavy water so the noise that the studs make is not that much of an issue. I highly recommend these excellent wading boots.
