Poor sizing -
These boots appear to be well made but they were way too small. Even though I ordered a size larger than my shoe size they were too small and will be returned

These boots are great for wet-wading. I wear them both in the river and in the flats and they slip on and off easily over neoprene booties. If you have gravel guards, expect to have no sand, mud, or gravel in your boots when you take them off. They keep you stable in the water as well. Just remember to order one size bigger than you normally wear to accommodate your wader booties.
Great Value!!! -

I purchased this boot for my girlfriend so she can fish with me on occasion. For the price, I expected an average to low end quality boot but when I received it and asked her to try it on was very impressed. In fact, I was so impressed with the construction of this boot that I quickly went online to see if there were any more sales on that had this boot in my shoe size as I had just purchased new boots from another boot maker. These boots from Orvis stack up against any on the market and are a great value. The felt is stitched to the bottom of the boot ensuring that it will stay on and well attached for many outings to come! Great product from Orvis always!

Purchased these boots in July '12 for a trip to Kamchatka in August. Store personnel were very helpful, making sure of a proper fit, feel, etc. Next time was on stream in the wilderness. First time on - two eyelets came out. Over 6 days, five eyelets came out. Boots were good, but kept wondering "whats next". Consequently, I question the overall quality. Would go with a better quality, i.e. more expensive, boot, especially for wilderness trips.
Superb Customer Service -

Just getting into fly fishing and I ordered felt sole boots online before I really knew what I was doing. Then I discovered I needed a bigger size to accommodate booties and socks. When I visited the San Francisco store I bought a more expensive pair of wading boots on sale and was told I could bring the online boots into the store for full credit. I was also told that the felt boots I bought online might be banned in California in the near future. I was helped by Heinz who was enthusiastic about fishing and about helping me get into it. The boots I bought at the store not only tied but zipped on the side for easy removal, removable studs and better ankle support than the online felt boots. This review is not so much about the product as it is about the customer service in the San Francisco store. On a scale from 1 to 5, the service at this Orvis store was a 10!!

I purchased these boots for my grown daughter who enjoys getting out on the river and fishing with her dad. They are a good choice for the three or four times a year when she is able to get out. they are light weight, comfortable and easy to get on and off.

good product -
this was a good product at a reasonable price. The boots are very roomy, unlike other boots I have used in the past.
Nice buy -

I just received my clearwater11 wading boots and used them in a local stream. They worked very well, provided good stability on a rocky stream bed, and kept my feet dry. Very satisfied customer.
