Wader boots a little too big.

Postby bjno1300 » Wed Oct 02, 2013 4:14 pm

Hey guys just got a pair of cabelas dry plus breathables zippered waders. I got the size 10 because I wear a 10.5 shoe but these are actually feeling too big. I generally just wear one pair of wool socks and don't like two becaus I sweat too much but when I wear 2 with these they are closer to being right. With one pair I'm about certain mud would pull boot down. I'm worries maybe a 9 might be tight though?? Just wanted you guys thoughts. Thanks

I had trouble with Cabelas wader boot size also. I wear 11s and wader boot 10 fit me perfect.

return them and get the next size down. The Cabela's waders run much closer to "western" style/band boot sizes.

I wear 10.5 Nike's, 8.5 Double H boots, size 9 Ariat boots, and size 9 Cabela's waders.

You could put in a comfy insole.

This, plus you have more room for air to keep your feet warm. When I moved 2 shoe sizes up on my waders, my feet stayed a lot warmer.

sure feet will stay warmer in looser pair but have a set come loose or completely off your foot in the thick stuff once and you'll wish you had a snugger fit

This is the problem with my Cabelas Breathables in 12S. Two pairs of heavy wieght wool socks and the mud still sucks them off. Time for some thick insoles and a Canadian Jam knot with 550 cord on the outside to keep them on.

I sent them back to exchange for the size 9. I like wearing just one pair of socks and can't stand the feeling of my boots slipping off all the time. Thanks guys for input. If this pair does same thing I will employ some of your tactics. Thanks
