Who has super wide feet and bad feet --ME! What manufacturer makes the widest foot in hip boots or wader for that matter?

My shoe size is 10 1/2 or 11,I always get hippers or waders in size 12. Always more than enough room for plenty of socks.

If my feet aren't wet,I must not be trapping.

Thanks Tom, I may go a size larger like you say. Never had before but my right foot gets to hurting after a while. I think it is my current hip boots along with my w-i-d-e feet with bunions. Fun to get older!

I bought a size bigger but could not keep them on my feet I added some short wool boot liners they fit right now, buying boots is a crap shoot.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

LaCrosse Trapper's hip boot. Insulated foot. I do 12 and it fits nice. My regular leather boots are also a 12. I have wide feet.

Hip boots and chest waders must fit snug. If they are too loose - two things will happen. First is that if you get into any kind of muck, your foot will lift out of the boot bottom. The second is that your socks will work their way down and drive you crazy.

Understand what you're saying....but I have trapped water for 55 seasons and boots shouldn't be so tight they hurt your feet.
