Orvis Pivot Boot Felt

Never worry about shoelaces again with these BOA wading boots.


The Orvis Pivot is the first in a new series of wading boots from Orvis featuring a host of new innovations designed to improve traction, comfort, and durability. The Pivot's most noteworthy feature is the implementation of the Boa™ Closure System. The Boa Closure System is the most revolutionary closure system on the market. The exceptionally durable and lightweight reel combined with aircraft grade stainless steel laces provide smooth, even closure for a secure, comfortable and truly customized fit. Just turn the dial to achieve the desired fit, take a few steps and make the final adjustment. To take the boot off, simply pull the dial out until it clicks and then pull the tongue out and away, quick and easy. The upper of the boot is constructed of a highly durable and proven synthetic microfiber, the same material that is used in the Riverguard Ultralight. Scratch rubber provides enhanced sidewall and heel protection. The molded rubber toe cap provides great protection from rocks and adds to the overall durability of the boot. The injection molded EVA midsole creates a secure and comfortable footbed that will cushion each step and help to prolong your day on the water. High density synthetic felt outsole provides great all around traction in a wide range of conditions. Screw in studs are optional if an added level of traction is desired. 100 cm replacement cable for sizes 7-11. 110 cm for sizes 12-15. In brown/dusky olive. Imported.
Whole sizes: 7-14.

    You Gotta have these! - 1/7/2015
    By: from Oregon

    I have fished the Deschutes River for several years in Orvis Felt Boots and have loved them. I wanted to have an extra pair with me so I bought the new Pivot Boot Felt and put the Orvis studs on them...what a difference! The comfort and grip on those greasy Deschutes boulders was unmatched. Great boot and I highly recommend the studs?

    Great Concept - 12/18/2014

    I purchased this wading boot to add a pair of felt soles to my gear. It is my first pair with a closure system other than laces. I have used the boots and find them to be comfortable and very easy on/off. The BOA Closure System works as described and makes it faster to put waders on and take off.

    easy access - 12/8/2014

    I have been on the water five days with these so far. Putting them on and tightening them are super easy, but they really shine when taking them off.

    Looks promising - 9/12/2014

    Boot appears to be rugged and light. Boa system looks promising. Does not close quite tight enough around the ankle so an extra layer of neoprene is going to be needed for a snug fit such as an extra pair of neoprene socks or a thicker pair.

    Awesome boots - 9/9/2014

    I was hesitant to drop this kinda of money on a pair of new boots but I am glad I did. The BOA system is amazing easy on and easy off. The boots tighten up over the whole boot and not one spot. I found the boots to be amazingly and comfortable for a full day of fishing. They didn't get that heavy feeling either once they get wet. You won't regret buying these boots.

    I haven't had the opportunity to use these boots in the field yet, but I did try them on. They are very comfortable, and very easy and fast to put on and take off. I expect them to wear very well.
