I liked these so much I bought another pair as a gift for my
Mexican guide. He said "see, very nice bone boots." These
boots are tough but relatively light. Very easy on/off. Nothing
can help you in soft coral sands except maybe snowshoes. I
suppose a square sole might be better for that, but the
rounded soles slip around mangroves roots and hard coral
bottoms better. They do fill a little (not a lot) with sand, but
they are flexible enough that sand and small shells don't chafe
your feet. Plus they are so easy to take off and clean out that
you don't even need to sit down to do it.
Very stealth, soft shoes, with great protection.
Overall, I'd say very good to excellent. And the price is right.
Now, if these guys would make something that would help me
with my casting . . .
Soles are heavy duty for a
flats-style boot. Not as heavy
duty as the ForEverlast Reef
Boots, but they are not the
same design. I like the
nimbleness of the flats boots
personally...the reef boots are
nice and offer superior
protection, but are a little too
cumbersome for me. I've
waded in heavy shell areas
and these flats boots
performed great. I have two
pairs, one for warmer months,
and one for colder months that
I wear over stocking-foot
waders. I bought two sizes
larger than my normal size to
fit over the waders and it's a
perfect fit, even with heavy
socks. Very soild quality
Excellent boot! I've wade fished the
Galveston Bay complex for many years,
always wearing lighter-weight neoprene
boots. These Flats Boots are much
beefier, have great oyster-shell-tough
soles, and better arch support. Slip on
easily and dry quicker than my old boots.
Highly recommended. Oh, and they are much
lighter than the ForEverLast Reef Boots.
