Editor Comments Super sturdy and will make you feel secure in the water. They feel like they'll last forever These look bad-a$$. The interchangeable soles are a great feature as well Interchangeable soles and the price make these a great option Great option for those who put in some miles to get to their fishing hole Overall, a solid boot that will not gain much weight during course of fishing
