Ok so I've decided its about time to get some waders but I'm having a little trouble. I'm a pretty big guy, 6'5", 270lbs, but thats fine, I could find an extra extra large stocking foot if i really wanted to. However, boot foot or even separate boots present a problem, I run a size 16 foot. Does anyone know of any good waders for me that would come in my size? I know theres a lot of disagreement between people on boot or stocking, I've done the reading, I feel boot is better for me, so that why I'm looking for that... but in the off chance that doesn't work out... stocking foot isn't a problem to find but does anyone know of good boots that would fit my freakish feet? I'm hoping theres some people with similar features that can help me out on here.

Cabelas makes some of the best IMHO. I'm 6'2", 265 and I'm well into the fifth season with my felt soled breathable waders. I wear mine on the canal, the beach, lobstering and clamming in the winter. Plus, you simply can't beat their warranty.

Thanks they do have something for me... out of stock of course, but even they are limited with shoe size.

Cabelas was my first thought, they've got some nice waders buy they only go up to 15... maybe some run big, i wont know unless i try them and cabelas isn't all that close.

Size 16 is alomost impossible to find in boot foot or stocking foot. I am a size 16 and I have to squeeze in a 15. I use breathable stocking foot waders in XLT from Cabelas. I use either a pair of the new Korkers Guide series boot (for jetty) or I have a pair of Simms wading boots in size 15 for the beach only. The Simms boots have a little more room than the Korkers.

again, LL Bean, great waders, only up to size 13. I have no shortage of sites and stores selling big and tall waders, my problem is the BOOT, that's what i cannot seem to find. Big Camo seems to be the only one that carries my shoe size, kinda sucks, oh well.

I am 6'4" and 280lbs.



My wife got me waders form Cabela's online and they fit great. Wish I had the time to look up the exact model for you. I do not know about size 16 foot however. Wow, what size is your............. nevermind don't answer that.



Good Luck
