Reviewed by bucky from Appalacia on Thursday, June 13, 2013
I purchased these W.J. wading boots after giving up on the customer service of a number of "big name"brands, when on more than one occasion the felt separated from the boot with less than a couple of seasons use. Although, I have fly fished for nearly 40 years, I had never heard of William Joseph ... Read More

    I have only used these boots about 4 hours and the felts of both are somewhere down river.I also have noticed the material they are made of is showing considerable wear .Too bad, I really liked the design and wish I didn't have to return them but the quality is very questionable .STP is sending me a return label.

    The boots arrived in less time than anticipated, new in package.
    The fit is as advertised. I wear an 81/2 street shoe, ordered a 9 and there is plenty of room for booties and wool sock, but I wear a "D" width.
    They seem well made. I will use them in the White River, AR next weekend and will know then if they rate additional stars. One construction item I noticed is the drain holes are in the upper edge of the outsole. Makes sense from a design perspective as the boots can drain completely, but they are not reinforced and seem to be partially blocked by the insole material, so we will see on that.

    First season the synthetic leather material started peeling off the lower part of the boot. Start of second season rivet on top eye broke. Middle of second season felt separated from sole and had to be glued back on. While I fished this boots hard I have not experienced this type of failure in any other of the many brands of boots I have owned. A comfortable boot with good traction on most surfaces but I expect at least two seasons from any descent wading boot.
    Not surprised that William Joseph no longer makes wading boots.

    These boots runs small. I ordered by true size (9) and had to return them. They seem like well made boots and are lighter than they look.

    I wear a 11.5-12 and purchased a 12 for use with waders and they fit perfectly. Not flat inside but not too much arch support to be annoying, good grip and seem made quite well. They take awhile to dry which is kind of annoying as I typically ride my bike to go fish then have to wait 30 minutes (at least) for them to dry enough to go back in my pack so they don't weight 10lbs and get everything else soaked. But at this price and with good fit and great grip, I'm very happy with them.

    • Answer When I first ordered the size was 14 and that is the size of my old Patagonia boots. The William Joseph W20 was a much larger size in comparison to the Patagonia, and were exchanged for size 13. I wear size 12 in a regular shoe and was advised by friends to go one to two sizes up so you can wear heavy socks and still have good circulation. (circulation is the main factor for me when wading in cold water). The 13 was a better fit in the heel and reduced slip. My feet are narrow to begin with so with any wading boot I will have a lot of wiggle room. To get the proper fit take your waders and socks to a store for sizing. STP has no problem with returns.

    • Answer I purchased this boot and actually went up one size from my normal boot. In the past, I have been to snug in my exact size on several boots and frankly I'm more comfortable in a boot that is a bit larger than one that is too tight! I have used these boots several times and find them very comfortable.

      This boot has a very large opening and slides easily over waders!

      Hope this helps
