Just dumb founded on waders everyone so take it easy on me . Just wanted to know when you wear boot waders where the boots already attached , do you wear any kind of shoes also or just sock feet ? Just wondering cause I have a pair of rubber boots that I used for yard work and I just have sock feet with them . If I wear them too long or do any digging they kill my feet . So what do you wear with waders ?

I have one pair of bootfoot waders that I wear in one of two situations -- when it is extremely cold, or when I am fishing the surf. In either case, I will wear one or more pairs of heavy, synthetic socks. Of course, it depends on the boot size. My bootfoots are about a half size larger than my street shoes.

I have a pair of neoprene hunting waders I will wear if it is real cold and just put on wool socks. You get the boot size to fit your feet.

Like any piece of footwear good quality and the right size will go a long way towards keeping you comfortable. Most, but not all boot foot waders are heavily insulated for cold conditions and a decent medium weight boot sock should do the trick.

Unless you have a leak or sweat a ton they keep you completely dry

I think most on here would agree that the waders without the boots are better. Right now Three Rivers Fly Shop is having their going out of business sale so you could get some waders and boots for less than a hundred a piece

I have a question about the sock foot waders. I would prefer to buy them but can you wear something besides wading boots with them? I really cant afford waders and boots right away and would like to get the waders now with tennis/canvass shoes or something else (converse all star high tops?) and get the boots later.

For Texas, get a good pair of breathable stocking-foot waders (Orvis Encounter are reasonably-priced and good quality; as are Redington Crosswater waders) and a good wading boot (I prefer rubber soled). Again, Redington and Orvis make good-quality entry-level boots.

Under my waders, I wear long wading socks (from Simms) and a baselayer (like Under Armor; I have a special pair of thermal baselayers from Simms that I wear in cold weather). I usually just wear a t-shirt for my top, though I've got some long-sleeved fishing shirts that I can wear if it's cold or too sunny.

In the summer, you don't even need all that (though with breathable waders you'll be OK). In the summer, I just wear some wading shoes from Simms (rubber-soled) and some gravel guard socks (big neoprene socks), usually with a pair of shorts and enjoy the cool water.

My answer is yes but no. You can wear tennis shoes over the neoprene booties on the breathable waders but I would not recommend it. Not enough protection for the stocking foot at the ankle level. The high top boots offer needed protection both for you and the booties in case you rub a rock or get your foot stuck.

BassPro currently has a great sale on their Osprey breathables at $90 and their boot at $45. I just bought them last week and have been wading the shores of Twok to figure out my under garment configuration. Frankly, I'm impressed with them.

When you choose a set of boot-foot waders do you go by boot size ? For me most shoes I wear are size 9 but I also have 9-1/2 in some shoes .

Yes, this is generally correct. Same size, but there are exceptions. I have found certain boots that I have to go up or down a full size between models from the same manufacturer in boots and waders. I would highly recommend you try them on first with your intended footwear. Just out of curiosity where do you plan to use them?
