Endura™ Breathable Bootfoot Waders

These versatile fishing waders are breathable for extra comfort.


The comfortable neoprene-lined boot features a raised and vented removable insole to circulate air and give comfort with every step. Plus, a felt sole for solid, safe traction. Built around a new three-layer fabric system with a fifth layer of polyester microfiber reinforcing the knees to give added protection where a wader takes most of its abuse. The main three-layer fabric is of a tightly woven, polyester face fabric coated with a layer of breathable polyurethane, with a breathable membrane and a nylon Tricot backing to handle all you dish out when fishing. A full-time wader for all levels, built to last, unlike similarly priced waders. Adjustable suspenders with opposing buckles easily convert the wader to waist-high. Wader safety belt included. In tan. Imported.

Order your normal shoe size. These waders are designed to accommodate a pair of heavy wading socks. If you wear a half size shoe, go to the next larger size (boot foot waders are not made in half sizes).

    Ideal for "rapid deployment fly fishing" - 8/19/2014

    Just jump right into them. No hassles especially if you have knee and other orthopedic issues. Great gripping soles for slippery boulders in NH's free stone rivers.

    Returned to Orvis - 8/13/2014
    By: from NH seacoast

    After wearing a pair of Orvis Guide Pro boot foot waders for years. I purchased another brand only to have them leak first time out of the box. I have returned to the Orvis brand because they still make a boot foot wader with felt soles. I fish the salt beaches and boot foots keep out the sand and help with walking on slippery rocks. Only wish they still made the Guide Pro.

    Second pair disappointment - 5/18/2014

    Liked the fit on my second pair of these but disappointed at the poor quality boot, which ripped wide open on a rotten twig on the first day of my first fishing trip this season. Bought in summer 2012 and used perhaps ten days in all. Orvis suggested sending in for repair - did not offer a replacement for a defective product. Previous pair lasted three or four years with no problem.

    Nice experience - 12/23/2013

    The waders are perfect. It will enhance many future fly fishing outings. They are comfortable and fit as they should. I should also mention the excellent customer service at your Downingtown, Pa store. Very much a class act.

    Endura Bootfoot waders - 12/10/2013
    By: from Manchester, Vt.

    I am a shopper and for my money there isn,t a better buy out there. They are comfortable, durable and are better than others costing much more. Put Orvis,s warrenty on this and you have an unbeatable deal.

    Great waders - 7/24/2013
    By: from Montana

    These are excellent waders, especially at this price point. I wore them recently on two mid 90s days without getting uncomfortably hot. For lightweight bootfoot waders, they compare favourably to the Simms product at 2x the price.

    Boot Waders - 4/6/2013
    By: from Berkshire

    This is an excellent product which replaced the same item after many years solid use in a pond. The material is light, flexible and dries quickly. The braces offer very flexible size adjustments and the boots are solid - one important improvement with the latest model is the inclusion of a non slip sole which gives better stability in a mossy pond but isn't intrusive enough to damage the rubber liner underfoot. Overall, I had a good look around at competitor products and came back to Orvis again as I think the waders offer good value for money, reputable brand and reliable in its construction.

    Boot foot - 1/25/2013
    By: from Central, CA

    Great product, everything was as expected. Need to add a belt loop to hold the belt. It is a real pain when you need to remove layers of clothes, trying to keep track of wading belt. Simple solution to make this a much better product.

    Great Replacment - 9/13/2012
    By: from Bucks Co. PA

    After 15+ years of great dependable use, I had to retire my Orvis waders. I just received my new waders. They fit great and I like the improvements to the suspenders. Looking forward to many years of use.

    EXPENSIVE MISTAKE - 9/4/2012
    By: from North Scotland

    Bought these waders at the start of the season as I was fed up buying cheap waders that leaked after a couple of outings I thought that Orvis with their good reputation would make decent breathables which are notorious for leaking no matter what price you pay After 2 months the crotch area was leaking so fixed with Aquasure , a month later they were leaking all the way down behind my left knee so again fixed with Aquasure The fwlt soles are disappearing fast and will maybe last another season As I live in the North of Scotalnd I can't go returning waders every time they spring a leak so must make good the damage myself I am hugely disappointed as I paid good money for a product that does not cut the mustard
