My next pair of wading boots might have to be the ORVIS BOA System Pivot Wading Boot! I’ve been eyeing these for a while, and they’re high up on my (never ending) gear list.
I love the idea of the Boa tightening system on these boots. Not like tying your boots is all that hard, but sometimes the knots come undone, and my boots never seem to be symmetrically snug. With the Boa turn-knob tightening system, once you get your boots to the desired level of snugness, they’ll stay there!
It’s not very often that technology and boots are found in the same sentence. The Boa® Closure System pairs an exceptionally durable and lightweight twisty knob (they call it a reel) with aircraft grade stainless steel wire to provide smooth closure for a secure, comfortable, and truly customized fit.
It’s easy to turn the wheel to tighten the boot until you’re comfortable; to take the boot off, simply pull the dial out until it clicks (releasing the tension) and then push the tongue forward.
The material on the top side of the boot is a strong and long lasting synthetic microfiber. Durable rubber gives great sidewall and heel protection, and the rubberized toe provides adequate protection from rocks and adds to the overall durability of the boot.
The injection-molded EVA midsole provides a fitted and comfortable footbed to cushion each step and keep you fishing all day. Orvis has used a “proprietary” outsole with better than average traction in a wide variety of stream settings.
PosiGrip™ Screw-In Studs can be added if you find yourself in a slippery environment. This can really come in handy in warmer waters with algae coating the river bottom, which can be quit slippery. Or salt water fishing on the coast, when you’re chasing some bigger fish.
The boots weigh in at 3 lbs. 6 oz. in size 10, and run Men’s sizes 7-14.
