Orvis PRO Wading Boot with boa

Orvis PRO Wading Boot with boa

When you are hiking long distances, you want a light boot that can handle all types of terrain, and you need a snug, comfortable fit so your foot isn’t sliding around while you slog your way to the river. The new Orvis PRO Wading Boot with its BOA lacing system uses a cable tightening system that provides even pressure from the base of your shin to your toes, and they pop wide open for easy on/off back at the truck. The Michelin Outdoor Extreme Sole—and the rubber compound—were designed by Orvis and Michelin for maximum traction.

The boots use a midsole constructed from Rise, an algae-based product made by Bloom that replaces petroleum-based EVA products. Algae is the fastest-growing plant on Earth, and a vital component of aquatic ecosystems. However, the rise in global temperatures, excess nutrient runoff, and human activities have contributed to an uncontrollable rise in algae growth in ecosystems around the world. Bloom uses that excess biomass by harvesting algae from ecosystems in need of algae management. Rise has a renewable content of at least 45%, offsetting a significant portion of traditional EVA required for footwear foams.

The OrthoLite 3D molded X25 insole is made by the same company that produces insoles for brands like Merrell, Saucony, 5.11, and La Sportiva. The boot has a quick-drying Clarino microfiber upper, and an industry-first polyurethane-casting construction to eliminate seams in high-wear areas around the outside edge of the boot. The idea is that if the boot has fewer pieces, there is less chance of a catastrophic failure. $250 | orvis.com
