The Curated Take

Baily Dent, Fly Fishing Expert
By the Expert Community

Orvis has made a pair of boots that will last a lifetime. These boots have a one-piece outer shell that is made from a durable truck bed liner. Even after a year of almost daily use, they show no signs of wear. There is a short break in time with them because of this. The Michelin sole lives up to its billing and provides 30% better wet traction than other vibram soles so those studs can just stay on the shelf! The footbed in this boot is slightly narrower than other Orvis models so it fits on more of a half size and is a great unisex product. The BOA lace system is great to have on a colder day and makes getting in and out super easy. Extra laces are sold for these boots and would be a good idea to have on hand just in case the boots are over-tightened but replacements are easy to install once obtained.

Ideal for
  • Super tough and stands up to hard wear.
  • The sole provides better traction on wet rocks, even without studs.
  • Easy on/off with the BOA lace system
Not ideal for
  • Have an extra pair of laces on hand just in case.

The BOA Fit System in our Pro Wading Boot offers convenience and enhanced comfort.

A perfect fit means more miles in comfort, and covering water is what the PRO BOA Wading Boot's all about. Featuring the BOA Fit System this is, by far, the most advanced wading boot ever. The PRO Wading Boot was an industry-first collaborative effort with Michelin®, built on an outsole compound specifically designed for fly fishing. This revolutionary new sole design is an industry-disrupting advance in wet rubber traction. The Michelin Outdoor Extreme outsole offers 25% better abrasion resistance and a resounding 43% improvement in wet rubber traction over the competition. Using Michelin tire geometry, it offers a wider footprint for stability, a higher ratio of surface contact, and a lug pattern that reduces shock and improves pressure distribution. The two-layer midsole has a co-molded ESS plate that provides improved stud retention and torsional stability. Orvis partnered with OrthoLite® to create a 3D molded X25 insole designed for high-impact sports, delivering maximum comfort and arch support. An industry-first cast PU upper eliminates seams while providing a zoned cage for added stability, grip, and extreme abrasion resistance without the added bulk. The boot is higher cut for ankle support and lined with closed-cell foam. Scratch rubber at the toe cap and heel for abrasion resistance, an oversized heel pull for easier on-and-off, and tightly woven laces reduce broken laces. In shadow.

Features

  • Strategically placed locations for optional studs
  • Industry-first PU-casting construction eliminates seams in high-wear areas and drastically improves durability
  • Scratch rubber toe cap and heel for superior protection
  • Large heel pull for easy on-and-off
  • High density laces for extended durability

I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
