This is my 2nd pair of Frogg Togg boots. 1st pair is in great shape and 5 yrs. old. Order 1 size larger than you need to make room for warmer socks. The shoe laces are too short and broke quick. Frogg Togg's boot's and hellbender waders are top quality and great on the pocket book.
Pros: Price/Quality
Cons: laces to short
Best Uses: None Specified
Good boot but shoddy rivets

I bought these boots for my husband. The sizing seemed to be off, we had to return the first pair and got another 2 sizes bigger than normal. However, return policy was easy and we got the replacements quickly. He was initially pleased with them, but when he went to lace them up the rivets for the loops pulled out of the material. You could see each rivet thickness and length was insufficient to crimp the eyelet securely in place. It did not take much strength when tightening the laces to pull them out of the material. He ended up re-riveting all the loops securely. It is a pity that the overall quality of the boot was marred by faulty finishing work of the eyelets.
Pros: Nylon construction is good
Cons: Eyelets pulled out
Best Uses: None Specified

I like these boots a lot. Do well on slippery PA streams without any studs. Also comfortable to wear. Not real stiff like my old cabelas brand were. Only thing I had to do was buy longer laces. The ones that were with them were too short. Easy fix.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: none
Best Uses: none

I've only tested these once - here on a rainbow trout stream in cold, cold water. The boot performed well, and footing/slip avoidance on our slippery rocks did it's job. The only con I had, is my own fault, as I didn't wear warm enough socks under my neoprene. Took a while to dry, but that doesn't bother me.

My first pair of wading shoes were hand-me-downs so I don't have much to compare to. I'm a size 10W shoe and decided to gamble on a size 11. I figured the stockings are like thick socks so the extra room would work. While the fit is slightly on the larger size, it isn't noticeable and frankly speaking I'd rather have a tiny bit more room than have them too snug. Getting in and out is a breeze, lots of neck?? room to slide into. The only downside is that the top of tongue is fairly thick and the elastic portion of the gravel guards was really tight. In all fairness I am getting larger waders so this may be a non-issue, but they are a little thick up top. If the laces went higher up or were longer I suppose one could wrap them around and compress the tongue a little, but really it's a petty thing. These are sturdy and reasonably lightweight. Over-all I think these are fantastic mid-level boots and more than enough for a casual fisherman.
Pros: Tough Material, Breathable, Easy To Take On And Off, Good Footing, Dries Quickly

I have used them for Steelhead fishing in the NorthWest rivers. They had great traction on river rocks , although they don't have the rubber grip areas the pics show. They aren't as roomy in the toe box area as my same size Caddis wading shoes. A size and a half bigger than my normal shoes was barely enough.
Pros: Tough Material, Dries Quickly, Good Footing
