I have owned these boots for just over a year. They might not be too fancy looking but they are inexpensive and fully functional. I have always had a hard time spending a lot of money on wading boots, because it’s not like I am walking a marathon in them. I actually wore neoprene flats boots for several years as wading boots, because 90% of my time on the river is wading in sandals and breathable pants.
Why I am glad I bought these Redington wading boots:
- They dry out very quickly (especially if you pull out the insole)
- These boots loosen up all the way down easily for easy removal
- They are very comfortable (even while wearing with no waders or socks I have not gotten any blisters) I have walked several miles in some mountainous trout streams with no socks and the comfort of these is great.
- The laces and loops are strong and have not broken, frayed or bent (the lace hooks).
The lightweight Redington Palix river wading boots are comfortable, inexpensive and a best buy as far as I am concerned. They don’t look fancy, but who cares! They have stood up to my abuse for longer than most wading boots I have owned over the years. Just like all of the other Redington products I have owned these are tough as nails and are a good buy for the minimal price. I purchased the rubber bottom version of these boots, but they are also available in felt soles if you would rather (assuming your state hasn’t banned felt soled wading boots)
