Shop Staff Notes: The Orvis Men’s Ultralight Wading Boot is a super comfy boot that’s perfect for wet wading with a neoprene bootie (or just some thick socks) or with a pair of waders. It was designed to pair up perfectly with the Orvis Ultralight Convertible Waders which makes for a great late Spring through early Fall or travel wader set up. We find these boots fit slightly lower volume than other boots so if you want to make them your all year pair (meaning, you’ll be wearing thick socks in the late Fall through early Spring), then I would bump up 1 size. The sole material and design offer ver good traction both in the water and out of the water and will last longer than other rubber soles due to the dual durometer design. (The ouster edges are a more durable rubber compound with the rubber in the center being the more sticky rubber.) These boots are not as tall as most so if you’re looking for a boot with more ankle support, then check out other boots like the awesome Orvis PRO Wading Boot or the Korkers Darkhorse. But if you want a boot the will feel like your favorite pair of light hiking boots from day one, then the Orvis Ultralight Wading Boot is an excellent choice.
Even when you use non-felt soles, you need to be aware of Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) aka Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS). Please INSPECT. CLEAN, DRY all your wading gear. Here are some resources about ANS: MT FWP AIS, ANS Task Force, USDA AIS, Whirling Disease Info from TU. Clean Angling.
