Chota Outdoor Gear STL Plus Wading Boots
The Chota STL Plus Wading Shoes are legendary for their comfort, and have gotten even better with the addition of cushy PU mid-soles. These heavy duty wading shoes feature rubber cleat bases in the felt sole (14 per shoe), which allow the addition or removal of the included case hardened "STL" cleats. Lying flush with the sole, each cleat base is strategically placed. The cleat bases are tapped and ready to accept the "STL" cleats.
The Chota STL Plus Wading Shoes features a dark gray polypropylene felt sole to aid in traction. "Micro screen" ports allow shoe drainage while blocking out debris. The leather upper is specially treated for water resistance, which allow for quick drying. This shoe features Chota's exclusive "Quick Lace System" which provides rapid adjustment without knots or bows. The upgraded lace guides makes donning the "STL" Plus almost as easy as stepping into your favorite slippers. The addition of a molded heel enhances support and features a distinctive "Kick Off" plate to ease removal.
The Chota STL Plus Wading Shoes are two-tone brown and dark olive in color. Each pair of boots includes 28 cleats. A 1/4" socket or nut driver (not included) is required for inserting or removing the cleats.
- Genuine leather upper
- Large kick off plate

Chota STL Plus = A+

These are my fourth pair of Chotas. I bought size 11 this time, but I wear a 10 shoe. The combination of felt and screw in replaceable studs is awesome for PA freestone streams. Felt is banned in MD but still legal in PA. They have saved me from taking a spill on slippery rocks almost every trip.
Best Wading Boot Made!
Hands down, best construction and durability plus they are as comfortable as my Nike's! Great ankle support and easy on and off with quick ties. STL cleats saved me a few times. Only wading boot with a reasonable inside width, most are far too narrow.

I use these Chotas for fishing Erie tribs. The boot allows a ton of sock room and plenty of room to wiggle toes. The lace system is perfect, and the boots just slip on and off easily. You won't wrestle them on and off.I recommend the cleats, buy extra cleats and a spare lace system and you will be set. I have had 4 or 5 wading shoes and now I have a perfect fit....finally.
