Wading boots and fishing boots keep water away from your feet when fishing. Waterproof felt wading boots ensure your feet stay dry, and water-resistant fly fishing boots are quick-drying. Wading boots and fly fishing boots with mesh side panels allow water to drain if it does get in your boot. Felt wading boots keep grit and dirt out and off your feet. For fishing in deep water, fly fishing boots can be worn under waterproof fishing waders to add extra protection. Felt wading boots and fishing shoes are also abrasion-resistant, scratch-resistant and have rubber heals and toe caps protect them from wear. Walking on wet river rocks can be slippery and dangerous, which is why wading boots also feature extra grip on the outsole. Fishing boots by Korkers, Redington and Simms keep you and your feet stable and dry.
