The Pro wading boots from Orvis live up to and surpass the high standards set by their name. While my skills are far from “pro” level, my clumsiness along southwest Montana’s river bottoms is expert, indeed. The Pros have bailed me out more than once, with their stiff ankle support and ultra-grippy soles. The soles are made of Michelin Tires rubber, which seemed a bit gimmicky until I hit the river. You'll stick to the slippery rocks like a true professional. Available at Montana Angler and the Tackle Shop; $230.
