    Went and tried on some boots at Fisherman's Landing. Gills were nice, but more for people with bigger ankles and calves. Ended up just going with some Xtra Tuffs. They even hooked me up with some free insoles!

    I was just gonna go order some online afterwards, but they just put in some AFTCO gel insoles because I'm a half size but the next size up felt too loose and so we were screwing around to see how to get the best fit. Those guys at Fisherman's Landing are awesome. Can't beat the free line that they are happy to put on your reel. image.jpg

    Since we are talking about xts, I don't really want to make a new thread for it. I was thinking about getting a pair of them, but I have wide feet and heard that they run narrow. I am a size 13. So should I get a size 14 or stay with 13?

    14. If all else fails you can get thicker insoles like I did. I went a size or two up and did that. Remember your feet will swell after fishing all day. You might be a good candidate for the Gills. They felt a bit wide on me.
