Wading boots are a necessity in almost every fishing scenario. Even if you’re wet wading on the flats or poking around your favorite backyard stream, boots that keep your feet safe and functional on the water are a must. Like everything else in fly fishing, wading boots come in a variety of colors, styles, sizes, and fits. From flats boots to wet wading boots to ultra-lightweight boots and even super-heavy boots, there’s a boot out there for everyone and every situation. Our wading boot collection is massive to give you as many choices and options as possible.
Perhaps the most well-known brand in wading boots is Simms Fishing Products. Simms makes waders, wading boots, jackets, and other important gear for fishing and fly fishing. Simms’ newest addition to their wading boot collection is the G4 Pro Wading Boot, a boot built for the avid angler and for the professional guide. The G4 Pro Boot has rubber anchors for studs, a molded protective toe cap, low profile lace loops, and more features that make it one of the best wading boots ever produced. Simms also has flats boots, rubber boots, and even sandals for performance in any wading condition.
Another well-known wading boot company is Korkers. One of the nicest features of Korkers Boots is that they have interchangeable soles. When you want to wade with a studded sole, simply detach your felt sole and put on your studded sole. This makes one pair of boots ultimately more versatile than just rubber or felt or studded. One of Korkers’ most famous boots is the Korkers Darkhorse Boot. The Darkhorse boot is a rugged, durable boot with high performance in any freshwater or saltwater environment. The Darkhorse also has a convenient BOA M2 lacing system for quick on/off and custom fit. Korkers boots might just be the most versatile boot on the market.
Orvis also makes a small selection of wading boots to cover most flats/freshwater situations. The Orvis Pro Wading Boot is a boot for the angler who spends a lot of time in his/her waders. These boots feature a Michelin Outdoor Extreme Sole, 12 strategically placed stud locations, no stitching on the toe to eliminate seam failure, and many more technological advancements in the world of wading boots. Orvis also offers a Christmas Island Rubber Flats Boot that’s perfect for wading the flats and an Ultralight Wading Boot that’s made for more casual wading when a lightweight boot is needed.
Finally, if you’re looking for affordable wading boots, Redington makes multiple models that are priced to target the entry-level angler. The Redington Benchmark Wading Boots are simple and affordable for maximum performance without added weight. These boots feature a quick-drying, abrasion-resistant upper that’s strong and lightweight and other features that make them a great option for beginners and traveling anglers. Redington also makes a high-end technical boot, the Prowler Pro Wading Boot, for serious anglers who want a boot that’s ruggedly reliable with all the features of an expensive boot.
