Lightweight studded wading boots for women.
Cutting-edge EcoTraX™ soles and special nonporous, durable and lightweight microfiber uppers help stem the spread of aquatic invasives while giving you the solid footing you need.

Lighter in weight than competitive boots and more flexible to give the sole more contact for better footing. Rubber at the toe, sidewalls, and heel resists abrasion from rocks and debris for added durability. A hiking boot style and new lacing system adds to the comfortable fit. Removable insole. Women's fly-fishing boots include PosiGrip™ Screw-in Studs to maximize the traction in slippery wading conditions. Imported.

Being fortunate to fish as many different rivers as I do, I recognize how important it is to help prevent the spread of aquatic invasives. That's why I'm so excited about our new River Guard wading boot series with EcoTraX. They go a long way toward that end." Dave Perkins, Orvis Vice Chairman.

Help Stem the Spread of Aquatic Invasives — Inspect, Clean, & Dry Your Gear.

As the threat of Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) such as New Zealand mud snails and Didymo grows, anglers wonder what’s the best way to care for gear to help stem their spread.

“The best way to care for your gear to prevent the spread of aquatic invasives is to
Inspect, Clean, and Dry your gear."
– Dave Kumlein, Whirling Disease Foundation

  • Inspect gear and remove mud and vegetation before leaving a fishing location.
  • Clean gear with hot water (= or > 104° F).*
  • Dry gear thoroughly before entering new water.

* Chemicals used to clean gear are harsh on gear and environmentally harmful. Orvis and most leading conservation organizations do not recommend them.

Felt-soled wading boots - one source of the spread of ANS

While birds, wildlife, and outdoor pursuits other than angling can carry ANS from watershed to watershed, we anglers play a part. Felt soles on wader boots are the primary concern of anglers, as they make the most contact with the river bottom where ANS live. Combine that with felt being absorbent and slow to dry, and they become the #1 carrier of ANS due to angling.

The Innovative Design of River Guard Wading Boots with EcoTraX™ Soles

Our new River Guard Wading Boots with EcoTraX™ Soles help stem the spread of ANS because ANS can’t cling to them as well as to felt. EcoTraX soles also dry exponentially faster than felt, which can take days to dry thoroughly enough for absorbed ANS to die.

PosiGrip screw-in studs.New EcoTraX sole treads, exclusive to Orvis, have special sharp edges on the lugged cross pattern to grab better than other rubber soles. We include PosiGrip™ screw-in studs, so you get the best traction in varied conditions for added safety.

While there’s no panacea to stop the spread of ANS, new River Guard boots go a long way to help.

“Our higher purpose as a company is to introduce our customers to the natural world;
show them the infinite reward of the experience and the lifestyle that surrounds it;
and perhaps most importantly, work with them to ensure its survival.”

– Perk Perkins, Orvis CEO

Wash invasives away with rubber sole wading boots.

Wash invasives away! Rubber soles make washing off invasive species far easier. The smooth non-absorbent surface, unlike felt that absorbs water and spores that can remain in it for weeks on end, gives spores and the like no place to take root or “hide.’’
