- Great boots! Review by Texan
OverallI purchased this boots a year ago and will never buy another "cheap" pair of neoprene wading boots again. They are great for wading the bay's along Texas' coast. I fish over 100 days a year and 99% of that is wading. These boots have stood up to the abuse and I give them 5 stars. They are not overly heavy, supply ample arch support, and are super comfortable. Addressing the "zipper sticking" problem, after each outing, I wash off with fresh water, then once dry, spray a stream of rem-oil or any other oil. The zipper stays smooth. The only issue I have had is the Velcro strap over the zipper. When wading mud, it will detach, but it's no problem to me. If your thinking about getting them, you can't go wrong with these.

- Perfect for Tailing Redfish in the Lowcountry Review by Cameron
OverallAfter walking the grass flats barefoot for a while I got tired of the occasional spartina stalk or crab/shell getting the bottom of my foot. I bought these and they obviously made a huge difference. The soles of these booties are very tough but somehow they are still extremely comfortable. After wading around for awhile I forgot I had them on. They allowed me to stop thinking about the best place to put my feet and focus 100% on making the perfect cast to that spotted tail breaking the surface in front of me.

- Well-made but tight... Review by EddC.
OverallWell-constructed & definitely well-designed but I found them tight in size. I am always a perfect size 10 in footwear but these booties will require me to re-order a size 11. I walk rocky beaches in the Northeast US & look forward to wearing a pair of these Booties which fit me more comfortably.

- Small!!!!! Review by Sam
OverallThese are great flats wading boots, but they run really small. I wear a size 11 shoe and have tried sizes 11 and 12 and both are really tight. This is with a relatively thin sock (just thick enough to keep the doctor flies from biting through). I have ordered a size 13 and hope they will fit.

- Comfortable but problems with zipper Review by Fisherman
OverallThe bootie is very comfortable and easy to walk the flats in Andros. They would have received 5 stars except the zippers became stuck each time I wore them. Sand would jam them and I would have to slide them off. Flushing them with fresh water would eventually free them up.

- Great boots for the flats Review by Yellow jack
OverallI bought these boots about 3 weeks ago and these are the best I have used by far. Here in Grand Cayman I spend most of my time wading for bonefish. The bottom can range from sand, mud, grass or urchin filled limestone bottom. These boots handle it all. Easy on,easy off and a breeze to clean up and let dry. Great boot.
Simms nailed it on this one.

- best river wading shoe ever Review by ken
OverallTried them in the summer in Potomac and Shenandoah rivers for wading. Worked well in the mud and rocks. No rocks get in. Comfortable in hot, humid weather. Good foot protection.

- Life a Foot Review by Sasquatch
OverallFit well with some arch support. I use them on the Gulf coast of North Florida. I can wear them in my sea kayak and get out and wade fish. Try it.

- Excellent Florida Wading Bootie Review by Capt. Ross - Fort Myers, FL
OverallMy review after 3 months of use wading inshore in SW FL.
Common Bottom Conditions:
- Loose Shell
- Sticky Mud
- Lime Stone
- Edges of Oyster Bars
Most trips inshore here in Pine Island Sound require sometime in the water. Chasing redfish and snook deep in the back country sticks your feet into a variety of conditions. The Zipit Bootie II have done a great job keeping my feet safe and keeping shells and debris out. Very comfortable for extended wear and reasonably cool in Florida heat. (I will normally unzip them when running from spot to spot).
From the ankle up, the bootie is a nice, tight fit. It's great for staying on your foot in nasty mud and keeping shells rocks out at the same time.
I try my best to avoid walking through oyster bars, as these little grey razor blades will chop up any shoe, but with careful exposure, the exterior doesn't show any tears or rips.
Highly recommended for Florida wading.

- Great product Review by Andy
OverallI recently bought these for surf fishing in Central CA (and wherever else I fish these next few years) - they are fantastic. Comfy for my flat feet and very lightweight - exactly what I was looking for.
