Navigating strong currents and slippery rock river beds is part of the experience. Our Freestone® Boot has a proven record of durability and traction in rocky rivers around the world. It provides the support underfoot and at the ankle for negotiating slick, unseen river bottoms. The synthetic uppers take the abuse of brush, rock and water in stride, while a cushioned midsole and partial neoprene lining provide all-day cushioning and warmth.
If you need trout fishing gear with great service, try these guys. I know I will be ordering again in the future!
These boots are comfortable, steady on the rocks and reliably constructed. The only complaint, I have is that they are heavy underfoot, like really heavy and if you are hiking in or moving a bunch from hole to hole, you are really going to feel it by the end of the day.
These wading boots are at a great value point for the comfort and durability. I've put almost a whole year on them fishing 1-2 times a week and they have broken in nicely, are comfortable, and drain fairly well. After an 8 hour day on the water my feet feel great wearing these, you'd be hard pressed to find a better boot at this price point. They are a bit heavier than what I am used to however, which is why I knocked off a star.

I picked these up along with Simms Freestone Waders - a great combination. I generally wear a size 10 in sneakers and 10.5 in hiking boots, got a size 10, and fit is perfect with a light-weight wool sock. Have only had out the day I picked up but seem well made and durable. My previous pair of Redington boots were like moon boots - very clunky - and the toe section was so bulbous that made hiking and wading in strong current difficult. I'll probably pick up a pair with felt to dedicate to Summit County fishing and use these rubber soles for allrounders and longer approaches.
These boots are very comfortable and durable. They made it through a whole year being used a couple times a week and the summer and there is hardly any sign of wear and tear on them. Also very supportive around the ankles.
