I own the silver sonics, I love them except the gravel guards are utterly useless for me. They ride up to the top of my boots in a matter of minutes. Any advice to stop this?

mario: Don't they have the metal hook to attach to your boot lace? I've had several pair of Orvis waders, and they all had the lace hook.

Hi Brian - I've got a pair of Silver Sonics, but I haven't even taken them out of the box yet.

Fox has 'em too, and he put a split ring (like a key ring) on his boot laces, then hooks the hook on the gravel guard to that. Seems to work well for him.

I'd look for a brass split ring though, so it doesn't rust.

The only issue I had with the SS gravel guards was that the stitching around the elastic came out on one side. Orvis repalced them without questions. I've never had them ride up and yes, they do have a clip or at least they should.

Thanks guys, I do use the clip and I attach it on the bottom most lace. Perhaps the boots just disagree with the waders?

I told orvis about the problem and they think it has to do something with my anatomy, but they're giving me cheap upgrade to the top end guide waders, so I'm happy.
