HUK vs Xtratuff vs ???
Looking at a new pair of fishing boots and am leaning toward either the HUK Rouge Wave or the Xtraftuff Ankle Boots. Of those 2 or any others that I may not have mentioned, which do you prefer and why?

Xtra toughs run narrow. Order a size bigger

all pretty even really, find the best price and go for it.

Xtratuffs for me (and my two boys). Comfortable and I don’t need a higher boot on the boat. Might want to order a size up as they run a bit on the smaller side.

Im a huge fan of XtraTuf. Very comfortable. My first pair had the neoprene going up the leg and it got a lot of holes in it from getting snagged and god knows what. I went with full rubber and much better. Got the commander pair and they are tight to put on and a little tight around the ankle. Recently got the white XT and they are great. Also have the insulated and warmest boots I have owned.

I dont own the shoes so cant comment on that. We have biting flys that love ankles so I wear boots year round.

xtratuff: I have two pairs: I live in them. They are an amazing boot. Wore them all day working on the farm yesterday. I am going to where them all day today taking my son bull red fishing.

I prefer Stock Island slippers.

I had Xtratuf's. They were awesome until I had a leak in one of them and had to deal with customer service. I had a terrible experience, but apparently they are revamping their customer service as we speak. The product was good, I just wish they would have stood behind it better. I sold my new Xtratuf's that I got when my warranty claim was solved and bought Rugged Shark boots. Used them for a dozen trips (commercial and recreational) this past fall and winter and they have been great. They wear like a shoe and protect like a short boot. Very comfy even after being on your feet all day.

Xtratuff is made in China... Also there customer service was lacking on my last order.

I've been fishing for over 50 years, I never knew I needed special boot to fish it, (except when I fished commerically), and I don't think the fish knew either
