    Dirty trails and slimy rivers.

    There are a couple of miles of dirty hiking trails and slimy river crossings between you and your secret fishing holes, which is why you choose Hodgman's Vion H-Lock Wade Boot. Its H-Lock System allows you to replace the boot's sole with welt for grip on slimy stones, or you can keep the rubber sole intact for the trail. Lined in neoprene, the waterproof nubuck leather upper works hard to keep your foot comfortably dry while fly fishing, and the drainage ports add self-cleaning convenience when you're hiking back to the car. 

    • Wade boot designed for hiking to slippery fishing holes
    • Waterproof nubuck leather and neoprene prevent water absorption
    • H-Lock System switches rubber and welt soles for versatile traction
    • Shock-absorbing midsole with self-cleaning drainage ports
    • Corrosion-resistant, double-stitched construction for durability

    Amazing Boot Right Out of the Box

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I acquired a pair of these boots just about a several months ago and they were amazing right out of the box! First day I took them up to the High Unitas in Utah and hiked several miles in them. Some would say that is not smart, including myself, but I rolled the dice and it payed off huge. The upper boot support is amazing prevent many stream rocks from crushing my ankles but they have a nimble front to back flex that does not hinder my fast hiking pace. Even the laces are much stronger than previous wading boots I have purchase (I usually replace them with military issue boot laces) an extra set a couple weeks after I start hiking in them. Needless to say this boot works in all levels of terrain from NY steelhead water to high elevation Utah lakes. I would suggest it to any person who wants a strong all terrain wading boot that gives you to comfort of a traditional hiking boot.

    Amazing Boot Right Out of the Box

    Best Cold Weather Boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If you fish in cold weather this boot is a must. The neoprene liner adds an additional layer of warmth and they are a wide enough fit to a couple layers of socks under your waders.

    The H-lock system is also spot on. Being able to put on studded felt for slippery streams and studded rubber when you don't want snow build up on your felt bottoms is a game changer.

    One of the best!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These boots have been a game changer for me. I have used many different boots in my years of fishing and this boots takes the prize as my favorite. The toe box has plenty of room that easily accommodates warm socks in the winter time. The lace system firmly holds the ankle without having to tie is super tight.

    My favorite feature of the boot is the H-lock sole system. I love the ability to be able to use cleats when wade fishing, the problem is that I can't use those boots in my boat. Hodgman solved that with this boot. I can easily switch between different soles and use the same boot. The system holds the sole securely and is a breeze to switch.

    Give these boots a shot, You will be impressed!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    No longer do you have to make sacrifices for the ability to change your wading boot sole. The Hodgman H-lock system will not let you down. Soles are secured and cannot come off until you are ready to switch them. Each pair comes with 2 extra soles. Soles are available in rubber, studded rubber, felt and studded felt. The rubber is insanely grippy and durable. Check out the video.

    Did you go a size bigger than your daily shoe size with these or what?

    NOTE: Although Hodgman allows proper room in the boot for the neoprene stocking foot, they recommend you find your regular shoe size in the Traditional Shoe Size section and order the corresponding Hodgman wade boot in the Recommended Hodgman Wade Boot section. Typically this is one size up for men and one size down for women. Additionally if you wear a half size typically going up one half size will suffice. (For example if you wear size 9.5 then a 10 will typically fit comfortably.)
