I wear a size 14 - 15 shoe, so with the added material of socks and wader footies I felt I would need a size 16 in a wading boot. Initially I thought I would have to pay a ton of money for customization or compromise by purchasing a lesser quality boot.
The Simms Freestone Wading boot was neither. High quality at a reasonable cost. I have used them about 15 times already and love them. Great ankle support gives me wading confidence. They are very comfortable as well. I couldn't be more pleased. I wade an area with very slick rock slabs and the soles provide a good grip even without adding cleats or studs.
I need new waders - hope I can find a pair that has room for my foot size!
