The Story

A new and improved flats boot based on our long-standing and best-selling Christmas Island Flats Boot. Made of Airprene and vulcanized rubber. The Airprene upper allows water to flow freely through the boot, but keeps sand and grit out. Easy on-and-off with a YKK® side zipper secured at the top by a hook-and-loop tab to prevent line snags. The sole and sidewall are a heavy-duty ridged rubber to protect against coral abrasion and offer excellent stability, but is much more flexible than its predecessor for comfort and "feel" on uneven surfaces. Comes with a reusable mesh carry bag. In gray/multi.

Airprene and rubber. Flush with fresh water. Imported.

In men's whole sizes: 5-14. 8" high. Weighs 2 lbs. in size 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flats Boot I am a size 6.5 in women’s and enjoy wearing these boots. We fished two days and the boots were comfortable. The chunky zipper is a little hard to get up and down when sand gets stuck in it. The zipper seams didn’t rub when I walked several hours. I have had this issue with other flats boots in the past. I recommend the boots!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I wade fish in Fl year round the soles are like walking bare foot the zipper s are constantly getting jambed from the sand I had a pair of the old style boots from Orvisthey had a good sole on them and you didn’t feel every rock you stepped on. You can buy the same style boot at any tackle store for half the price and same quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Haven’t use them yet, I’ve tried them on they seem to fit OK, next time I would buy a size larger because they’re a little snug but they should work

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, Comfort, and Fit These kind of booties are notorious for being ill-fitting, blister-producing, and hard to put on. Not these babies. Easy to put on, perfect fit, no sore feet and no blisters. They also are durable; mine show little evidence of wear despite being worn on asphalt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Christmas Island boots and I wear them o Love my Christmas Island boots! Great fit and very comfortable to walk in. I use them over my stocking foot waders both on the ocean sand beach and the backsides of the inlet I fish. Zipper on the side is better than the boots I had before with the zipper in the front. Less sand in the zipper. I also use the Orvis gravel/sand guards with the boots to eliminate the sand issue. Water drains out of the boot quickly making it easier to walk along the beach. This is important because I do walk to a lot of out of the way spots to escape the crowds. I highly recommend these boots.
