Need a new pair of wading shoes

Recommended Posts

My Fila Skeletoes died on my last trip of 2019 and I'm looking to grab something with no holes in the sole for rocks to wedge in, something with ankle support and something durable. Give me some suggestions please. I can't find the Water Tennie that was raved about any longer and I was hoping to go that route.

I have a pair of Soft Science Terrafins and I love them; while they have holes in the sole I have not had rocks stick in them.  They are super light and comfortable.

Have new pair of Korkers with switchable soles,139$ Kinda wished I would have gone with Simms,on sale 99.$

For what it's worth, there have been plenty of bad reviews of the newer Simms wading boots.  I have a pair and have had no problems, but apparently they fall apart for a lot of people.

I have a pair of Korkers, but they are heavy. Maybe I just need a good, thick pair of neoprene socks and go with them. They have great ankle support, which is my one requirement.

Academy used to have neoprene booties - basically neoprene socks with a flat rubber sole.  I like them.  Do pretty good keeping out rocks, especially so if you wear a regular pair of socks inside them.  Do not know if they still have them or not.

They do. They're $25 and $30 for either style they have.

man I wished a lot of you guys would have listened to Al when he touted these 5 10 Water shoes.... There is absolutely nothing better. I'm like Elaine with the Today sponge over here as I have 6 pairs of size 11, 4 in boxes still
