What size wading boots?

I'm about to purchase a new wading boot and I'm not sure what size I should order. Should I order my street size or go a little bigger to accomodate my neoprene stocking foot and a thicker sock for winter? Any help would be appreciated!

I think it depends on the brand...some run big, some run small...mention the brand and someone with experience should be able to tell you.

A lot of companies that your planning to buy from can assist. For example, LL Bean reccomends one full size bigger than what your street shoe is.

If you plan on using them during the winter, I would go one size bigger. I wear a 10.5 shoe size, but order size 12 wading boots. In the summer, I use them as well when I wet wade. I bought a bootie/gravel guard bootie that I wear with my boots to take up space. I also bought a size 11 wading boot (extra money came my way) for summer wet wading. Good luck.

yes if your gonna fish very cold water, the winter, you ned to allow for a heavy sock, a tight boot and your feet will get cold alot sooner than one that fits loose

I wear a size 12 shoe, and size 12 wading boot. Simple system, and it's always worked for me.

I do try them on over a neoprene sock (the word booty needs to be retired) first, though.

Sorry jayL, I will try not to use the word booty/bootie anymore. As of now, it is officially retired.

Haha. I was just messing around, but I do choose not to use it. Maybe I'll replace it with "badonkadonk"

Wait, you're putting on neoprene ass cheeks?

Does not compute!

I suggest Sport-Utility Socks.

Oh, and OP: Cabela's told me to go up one size for their boots over their waders.

If you're planning on fishing in the winter you're better off with a boot with a little extra room. Even with a liner sock and a good heavy sock you're feet will get cold if they are too tight. I had a tough day Steelhead fishing last February with stockingfoot waders and found that you don't want your feet too constricted.

I wear an 11.5 or 12 shoe, but my Korkers wading boots are size 13 and fit great. Korkers seem to really shrink when they dry out.
