    Re: boot foot or stocking foot

    I would go with the stocking foot all the way......A lot more versatile and easier to pack....

    Re: boot foot or stocking foot

    Bootfoots are warmer in the winter, and they're a big help when fishing on fine sand beaches. They're also much easier to hop into and out of. Stockingfoots are a pain to put on and take off but much nicer for hiking and wading in streams in spring, summer and fall, especially now that the Vibram-type soles are so widely available. Forced to choose, I guess I'd go with stockingfoot -- you can step out of the water to warm your feet and dump sand out of your shoes, but there's nothing you can do to improve the ankle support with bootfoots.
    Never tried the lace-up bootfoots, might be an option.

    Re: boot foot or stocking foot

    I have only owned boot foot waders and hippers and have liked every pair I've ever owned, the longest lasting pair of waders I ever used was a pair of extremely lightweight $89 cheapo's made by white river, I either got them from bass pro or cabela's, had them for 15 years, used them a lot and they just started to leak last year, so I cut the boots off and threw the rest out. I also have a pair of orvis Tailwater's in boot foot that are extremely comfortable.

    Re: boot foot or stocking foot

    I like the boots for walking but tired of sandy wet or frozen laces. I might go with the Korkers that have the Boa laceing system and interchangable soles. Good point about easy packing of the stocking foot.
