My sister has a pair of these boots and recommended I get some as well. We Kayak and boat a lot and spend LOTs of time in the outdoors all year around. These boots are super comfortable and I Love the thick rubber soles for stability. If you want your days of cold feet to be over, get these! I purchased 1/2 size larger for wool socks.
These are really nice paddling boots. They are warm, waterproof, comfortable and the have some nice features. I especially like the molded thick heel cup that provides a nice cushion for your heel when you are in your kayak. The soles are thick enough that walking on rocks is comfortableThey are a bit fragile, thorns or even twigs can puncture them so watch where you walk. Easily repaired though with neoprene repair cement. As nice as they are, I'm not sure they are better than a good pair of rubber boots.
Great boot. Very comfortable. Wore them with thick wool socks in temperatures in the low 30's. My feet stayed warm except my heal that was resting on the bottom of the kayak. No arch support, i wouldn't want to walk real far in them, but work great for exploring gravel bars. 100% dry.
I ordered in my shoe size (8) but they are way too small, I need at least a size 9 or 10. Winter kayaking requires socks, but even in bare feet these were too small. Other than that they felt really comfortable and supportive. I'll keep trying.
No river trip is complete without a portage or two. This boot kept my feet dry and the soles are sturdy enough to traverse branches and rocks. I followed sizing recommendations and found them to fit sloppily even with a heavy sock.
I bought these to go on a kayak trip it was cold and the water was very cold
Waterproof and warm. Recently purchased, have used 8 times with temperatures in the 20's. Wearing socks inside the boot feet have remained warm and dry.
I needed these, and they worked. They kept me dry and were comfortable to walk and portage in. They dried overnight every night.
