These are the best boots I've owned. The traction is amazing and ankle/foot support is excellent.

    Seem like they'd scratch up everything, but they don't. Grip like crazy on rocks and leaves the bottom of the boat without a scratch.

    I could not pass up a good price on what was reviewed to be a good pair of waders. I tried them out on my old stompin ground stream last Friday. I was very satisfied. The shoe was very comfortable and had great support. I usually wear size 12s in a boot and that is what I ordered and it had plenty of room for the sock foot and my high instep. They felt great in and out of the water and felt better than my old spikes walking in and around string. The flat plates seemed to make walking easier and I tried them on moss/algae rocks and wet steep rocks and was amazed at the solid gripping that the bars had. I was surprised how well the aluminum bar system worked. I inspected them when done and the bars do take a beating. They were pitted and scarred pretty well from my first day so I am wondering what the life cycle of the bars are and if there will be replacement sets when needed. They have screws in them so I would assume they are replaceable...if that is all correct then I can find no fault with these great boots at the even greater price. Highly recommended if you can get them in your size during the sale...looks like they are going fast.

    Getting rid of my felts. This boot gives good support. When worn over stocking foot wader, I buy 2 sizes larger. In this boot one size larger than my usual may have sufficed. Can't wear in my drift boat of course. Traction with the bars is very good.

    These are great boots: extremely grippy and very supportive for moderate hiking to/from/through the river. I used these today for the first time on the Sandy River in Oregon. All river rock with out much algae and muck. These stuck to the rocks glue. Coming from a pair of Orvis/Krokers with studs, these are great.

    I tried these out for the first time on the Siletz. I had surprisingly good grip in small gravel, on boulders, and on the large smooth bedrock (not sure what kind it is, I'm not a geologist). I wear a size 10 shoe, and ordered these in a size 10. I was concerned that they felt a bit large even with waders and thick socks, but they worked well.

    • Answer I purchased mine last year and they are men's sizing including neoprene footies. My size 10s were perfect for my normally sized 9.5 boots. The design and lacing provides secure fit, but slightly longer toe bed makes it feel more roomy.

      I suspect that the a size 5 (mens) ~ size 7 (womens) but comfort would also vary with thickness of your waders, socks, etc.

      Hope that helps!

    • Answer I bought a size 13. It is definitely men's sizing. I expect smaller sizes are men's as well. They also allow for the neoprene stocking foot.

    • Answer These are men's sizes. The sizing is accurate.

    • Answer I will say that they are men's sizes. I usually wear an 11 or 12 in men's and I ordered the 12. They fit me very well. I would say that you would want to try and figure out a men's size that will correlate to what a women's size you need and you will be OK. Most people like their wading boots a little big anyway. I really like these boots. They are great on rock and "snot". I would highly recommend them.

  • Question “Could I wear these in the winter on ice and snow?”

    Asked on 6/12/2015 1:37:19 PM by Naive Native from 44107
    • Answer I don't think they would be good for hard ice, they don't give that type of grip. They are good for walking slowly in water, on slippery rocks, but they are not a hiking boot. Short distances on snow would probably be ok.

    • Answer I am sure they would work fine in snow.....but I would not want to use them on my opinion. Hope htis helps.

    • Answer The flat surface of the metal plates leads me to believe they would not provide very good traction on ice.

    • Answer I am a mens 9.5 and a size 10 gave me plenty of room, hope that helps. They are good boots if you can't get felt ones. I am looking for the same boots with a felt bottom for my next pair because the aluminum bars wear fast and the only replacements are 40 dollars.

    • Answer Almost all wading boots are sized for men unless specified. You are probably correct about your fit. The boots are stiff (sturdy) and higher than other brands so may feel clunky especially at first.

    • Answer Yes men's sizes. Is there a sizing tab on the page?
      Answered on 5/12/2015 7:17:30 PM by Nathan from Missoula, MT
    • Answer The sizing for my size 10 was perfect for me as a men's 9.5. The sizing takes into account wader bootie thickness so I expect that a mens's 6 would be appropriate for a women's 7-7.5.

      These are great boots and really really grippy. I hope it works out for you. Fish on!

    • Answer I wear a 10.5-11 in street shoes and these in size 11 fit perfectly over my neoprene footed waders. Not sure if the 10 will work for you if you're actually bigger than 10.

    • Answer You would have to try them on over your waders with socks as their is no heel cup and can rub blisters if not fi properly. I would get an 11 if I were you .i sent mine back as they rubbed one foot raw

    • Answer I think ia 10 might be a tight fit. I wear a 10.5-11 shoe and I bought a size 12 Rock Grip.I could have gotten into an 11, but I wear a heavy pair of socks inside my waders booties, so there is no extra space inside the boots. The fit is very comfortable in the Rock Gips. They are very easy on and off too. I fish a lot of greasy, rocky stretchs on the Miramichi and Cains. These are the best wading boots I've ever used. I like them so much I have two pairs.

    • Answer These run surprisingly close to your normal shoe size, closer than other wading boots I've owned in the past. Having said that, I'd opt for a half size up if possible. I wear a stocking foot wader as well, normal shoe size 10.5, and I purchased this boot in a size 11. It fits perfectly! I've learned that cold feet while wading are usually the result of too tight of wading boot. These boots have a more open toe box that easily fits a thicker sock in stocking foot waders when you choose a half size up. A very comfortable boot, durable and light, and the bars lend a complete new level of confidence to wading on slick river rock. Tight lines!

    • Answer Patagonia boots seem to be sized true to shoe size. For size 10 1/2 and the neoprene bootie I would try the size 11 first. Consider that I am difficult to fit having a wide feet and one foot larger than the other. I seek a looser fit & then adjust with insoles and/or old boot socks or neoprene socks over the wader bootie.
      These boots are tall and stiff from the ankle area upwards which makes them different than other brands. My favorite wading boots with felt and studs are Chotas

  • Question “When I buy wading boots I buy one size up . ei. size 9 should I buy a size 10 ? ”

    Asked on 11/26/2014 9:41:24 AM by feds from Massachusetts
    • Answer I would and did for the simple reason that the neoprene booty and an extra pair of wool socks in cold trout waters in Pennsylvania demand the extra room and easily take up the one additional size especially at this time of year.

    • Answer I bought a size 11, usually wear size 10.5. I don't think a full size up is too much, I always allow room for stocking foot waders. These fit VERY comfortably! I love the fit of patagonia wading boots. These were my third pair. I regularly wear the patagonia ultralight sticky and add my own traction. Having said that I've been wearing these more often especially as winter sets in. They fit a little more comfortably than my ultralights and the traction is ABSOLUTELY unmatched if you wade slick and rocky rivers like we have in the West. Very comfortable and you'll be happy you sized up.

    • Answer I bought three sizes up because I have a wide foot and a good fit is very difficult for me to find.
      Go up at least one size, perhaps two sizes. These boots are high cut and stiff when new. STP makes exchanges painless.

    • Answer When I buy wading boots I buy one size up (sometimes two, mattering on the manufacturer). I have two pairs of these Patagonia boots. I were a size 8.5 shoe, so for my summer boots with lighter socks, I order a size 9 and with the winter boots (heavier socks) I got them in size 10. Both pairs work great for their intended use.
