    I love the lightweight design, but they are still very sturdy and supportive. Definitely high quality.

    Quality boot. Combination of light and durable. Wear a shoe size 8, ordered a size 9 to accommodate wader footies and wader socks. Fit great and very comfortable!

    These boots feel more like high cut trail runners. I feel athletic in them and I’m not afraid to push myself scrambling over rocks and logs. Love these boots!

    Great fit. Predictable confidence-inspiring level of feel. Comfortable.

    Great fit. Predictable confidence-inspiring level of feel. Comfortable and what a wading boot should be! All of those are ways I describe the Orvis Mens Ultralight Wading Boots. I Decided to give lighter boots a try after wearing traditional leather ones for over 20 yrs and WOW! I'm a convert! I was always concerned with how durable a lighter weight boot would be over a more "guide-level" boot, but after getting these that concern faded into the past with how well made they are. The materials feel bombproof and the fit and finish of them is spot on. Orvis quality through and through. I paired them with some of the new Orvis Clearwater waders, also a solid product from Orvis and have to say the two go together like peanut butter and jelly. They also work well fit and function wise wet-wading when paired with the Orvis neoprene wet wading socks which is how I wore them today. I'd be remiss if I did not mention the fit and feel of these one more time as it is that great! As is the support and how fast they drain water when you are walking and hiking between spots. Excited to put the miles on them! I fish a lot of backcountry small streams littered with slippery rocks, boulders, and fallen trees and put them through their paces today in a good amount of those types of scenarios. From bushwacking down the banks to hopping from boulder to boulder they performed well. At one point I was knee-deep in soft sand/mud and after a couple of quick shakes, they shed all the mud stuck to them. Once I finished fishing that spot and climbed back up the bank they shed water and weight quickly. They felt as good as my $180 hiking boots when I was walking between spots and actually lace up better than them to which I joked my hiking boot manufacturer should take some notes from Orvis on boot design, especially when it comes to the laces and lacing system. They're that good.

    Was looking for good quality LIGHT weight wading boots - found them
    Oscar (North Texas) | June 11th, 2020
    I needed a pair of well made quality rubber soled wading boots with option to add metal studs if needed. But high on my must have list was they needed to fit well and be light weight. These Orvis Ultralight wading boots met all of my requirements. I highly recommend them but might need to go up 1/2 or full recommended size.

    Best boots for those long hikes
    Chris (Louisiana) | June 11th, 2020
    I've never been a big fan of wading boots. They're heavy and cumbersome and an absolute pain (literally!) for my wide feet. I've often stuck to strap on sandals for day trips or hiking boots for treks to mountain streams, but decided to invest in legitimate wading boots prior to a week-long trip to the Rockies in 2019. After quite a bit of research, I decided to take the plunge and pick up a pair of Orvis Ultralights. First selling point, they fit extremely comfortably (a rarity for a man who generally wears New Balance 6E widths). Beyond fit though, they were extremely light (as light as any hiking boots I own), but still rugged enough for long days of wading up and down mountain side streams. I put roughly 40 miles on these boots in the first seven days on the water and the performed perfectly. I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for a light pair of boots for those days that require more than a brisk walk from the car to the river. These are well-worth the cost!!

    Just got the Orvis Ultralight Boot. Using it to backpack in to my favorite streams in the Sierras here in California. The light weight helps a lot on the trek back to camp.

    Well made and very light! Pure Orvis quality. I would suggest you order 2 sizes up, they run small

    Great Boot but runs narrow
    DL (San Diego) | April 5th, 2020
    This boot is a solid wading boot. Traction is decent, it dries relatively quick, drains well, and seems solidly constructed. The main selling point is it's lightweight for a wading boot. keep in mind part of the weight savings comes from it's more of a hybrid boot than a full boot. So if you're looking for full blown ankle support, it will work, but there are other models with more. My only issue with it is I had to go 2 sizes up and it's still a little tight. (I have wider feet so if you have normal width, it will be fine)
