If weight is an important concern in your selection of wading boots check out these new Vibram-soled Airtex Pro boots that tip the scales at a mere 1lb 14oz for the pair of size 10’s that I had for testimonial.

The single contours over the front of the boot to add a little much more in the method of security to the toe location. Second just in significance to the single, for me anyway, is the quality of the toe box. There sufficed reinforcement for it not to buckle over my toes when I was in much deeper water, it offered great security from toe strikes and there was a lot of wiggle area for my toes.

These are really easy boots to enter as well as out of with 4 sets of webbing eyelets and also 2 sets of quick-release steel shoelace hooks on the ankle joint. The thick shoelaces tighten easily and also although the tongue, which has enhanced abrasion panels, does not have a lot of padding there’s adequate to quit the laces from reducing top of your foot.

The boots are padded around the ankle and ankle cuff, have removable insoles, a pull tab on the heel and two drain openings on the inside edge of each boot.
