Cabelas Ultralight II Lug Wading Boot

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any experience with these. I'm in the market for a new pair of boots and these are on sale for $49.99. They are a new product so I'm not looking for detailed reviews, just if anyone has had hands on, and what you thought of them?


Cabela's Ultralight 2 Lug Wading Boots

We’ve upgraded our Ultralight wa­ding boots with high-grade components to make them more versatile and more durable than ever. The nylon/synthetic upper is built on a top-notch last with a base that accommodates a wide variety of foot widths. Molded EVA midsole increases cushioning and support. Rugged upper sports the added scuff and abrasion resistance of our Wade Guardâ„¢ on the toes and heels. Double and triple stitching in high-stress areas reinforces durability. Screw the included studs into the rubber cavities for extra traction on slippery rocks. Side mesh panels let water drain, while keeping out sediment. Padded tongue for maximum comfort and minimal weight. Imported.
Height: 8-1/2".
Average weight: 2.4 lbs./pair.
Men’s whole sizes: 8-14.
Color: Brown/Olive.

good boot, used over 100 trips last year.


It is a big improvement over the last series as well

Also, if you are wide foot like me, their standard width is EEE

-=-=-

EDIT, I have the standard felt with the spots on it for the screw in screws, not the lug sole. I would fall and bust my ass if I had the lug sole.

I have the cheap Cabelas lightweight boot with the stud inserts and felt. I really like them, but they fell apart in 3 months. A friend has the identical boots his held up well.

Fortunately Cabelas took them back and I got a brand new pair, so I'm more then happy. If they fall apart I'll return them again.

Screw in snowmobile studs and you're good to go.

Take a closer look fellas... these are rubber/lug sole... not felt. I used the felt all last season with wearbars... great boots for the money

Do you have a pic of the wearbars pattern you chose? I have the spots on mine like yours, but I am not sure where else would be bad or good to go with the wearbars. I would really love to ditch the korkers if I can make this work.

The 60$ Cabellas boots are very light.


Thanks

Rubber lug soles with screw in cleats. What's wrong with that?

Does it run true size or larger? I'm thinking about buy it and would love to ditch the korkers too.

MY foot size is 15EE and the cabelas ultra lite 2, 15 fits great.

The Korkers boots are the ones that run small, man I was so bummed out when they were tight as they didnt make 16 , I ended up giving away my cross currents to a friend.

%%chev: nothing wrong with them at all... the only point I was making was that these are brand new (all rubber bottom) and not the felt sole ones that guys used last year. I prefer the felt bottom.



I used wearbars all last season. 68 nights, all rocks... 11 island trips. and one thing I learned... the wearbars grip and hold MUCH better directly into the felt than the rubber receivers spots. they feel "squishy" in the rubber, strip the rubber quickly.



put them directly into the felt. Also, use a SS washer with them... it will keep them standing upright much better, and wont fold over.



Wearbars need their own thread...

I just ordered another pair of 15s, ugh 2-3 month backorder



i am going to wearbar the second pair

it seems like a nice affordable way to get rid of the korkers


oh and also for sure I am getting the ss washers too


anyone know what size ss washers?

Dont know the exact size, but get ones about the size that come with korker k-5000's

I wear a size 11 shoe, should I get 12's in these? They'll be worn with wetsuit socks so I was thinking I'd need the extra room.
post #15 of 54
2mm/3mm or so wetsuit socks, you defenitely should get size 11

I have 15s and when I am rocking the wetsuit with the 2mm booty, I need to sinch up the laces really tight for things to be snug. I am really happy too because usually the footwear I buy is too small -

The stock size is correct to foot size and on top of that they are EEE width stock width
