New innovations equal superb traction, comfort, and durability. The Orvis Boa Pivot Wading Boot has been designed to meet the demanding needs of professional fishing guides and the hardcore angler. The Boa® Closure System teams a durable and lightweight reel with aircraft grade stainless steel laces. Just turn the dial to achieve the desired fit; to take the boot off, simply pull the dial out until it clicks and then pull the tongue forward. A revolutionary new outsole is constructed of dual-durometer Vibram® compounds with an Orvis proprietary lug pattern designed to provide solid traction in a wide variety of aquatic environments. Our PosIGrip™ screw-in studs can be added for greater traction. Minimal seaming ensures long-lasting performance.
PosiGrip Screw-In Studs: Aggressive tungsten-carbide tipped screw-in studs that can be added to any wading boot with at least ½” of mid-sole depth. Sharp tip allows for quick and easy installation into felt or rubber out-soles. A must where maximum traction is needed. ¼” hex head screws. Adapter for power drill included. 20 studs per pack. Made in USA.
Shop Staff Notes: The Orvis Boa Pivot Wading Boot is the best wader boot Orvis has made to date. Just about everyone loves the Boa Lacing System because it makes it so easy to get in and out and quickly adjust while wearing the boot. This boot has LOTS of ankle support and ample padding around your foot and ankle with a smooth, durable interior to make it easier to slide on and off. The Vibram Dual-durometer rubber sole is the best rubber we’ve used. It grips pretty well in most situations, close to but not quite as good as felt. However, when you add studs to the boot (which is super easy to do with they way the soles are designed), it grips much better than felt. The “dual” part of the fancy name just means there is two hardness levels to the rubber. The toe area, heel area and all around the edge is a harder, much more durable rubber compound to help make this sole last a lot longer than other rubber boots. The interior rubber (with all the studs and traction edges) is a softer, more grippier compound. The Orvis Boa Pivot Wading Boot is a pretty stiff boot -which is good in terms of support and torsion resistance and overall strength. That means it’s a great boot for people that need extra foot and ankle support and stability. This high quality boot will last you longer than any other rubber soled boot out there -both in terms of the soles and the upper. If you are looking for a rubber soled boot, this is the best one out there. The Orvis PosiGrip Screw-In Studs are the best we’ve used (and we have used several). They grip incredibly well in the toughest conditions and they are the longest lasting. We sell the Boa Pivot on our webstore as boot only or as a boot & studs outfit that includes a set of PosiGrip Screw-In Studs at a package discount price.
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.
