For the first time in as long as I can remember, putting on my wading boots was not a painful ordeal that ended in a race to the water so my boots could stretch out. That’s because the Korkers Chrome wading boots are as easy to get on and off as regular shoes. The Boa speed-lacing system makes it a breeze to tighten the boot, and you don’t have to worry about the laces coming undone while you’re fishing. The soles are also interchangeable, so wearers can switch between felt and rubber soles as conditions or regulations require. You can also upgrade the soles to the studded felt or studded rubber for extra support and traction. Available at Bob Ward’s, Greater Yellowstone Flyfishers, Montana Troutfitters, River’s Edge, and Schnee’s. $180-$200; korkers.com.
