    Well I know my foot likes a flat sole and these have it. But yeah, I'd like to get my foot into a pair before buying.

    I am demoing a new to our market boot. Billy Boots.

    EVA foam. (Only 2 lbs. for a size 11 pair!) MADE IN USA...!

    Used by the US Navy. Max slip resistance in the industry.

    I will put up a review soon

    I tried on some of those Evairs and they were pretty comfortable.......I like 'em up a little higher to hide my skinny ankles but may end up with those.
    When are you gonna have some real feedback on yours Chuck?

    That's bad ass. Look forward to your review, but may order sooner. My last pair USA tuffs are starting to crack.

    I had a pair of Gill boots. They finally developed a split, so I now have a pair of West Marines'. The only problem is I wear a size 7 1/2, and of course they only come in full size, the 8's were too big. The 7's are a little tight when I put in the Dr. Scholl insoles, but I like the boots a lot. I just don't like having to roll down the Xtra=Tuffs. makomiko

    Well, I just ordered a pair.

    That's right, I did let you try'um on, but they're Muck Boots.
    Lets hear what you've got to say about the Gill Boot, awaiting your review. . .

    Thought they were Shimanos but I'm sure at the time you told me. They were comfortable trying them on, that much I remember.
    The Gills will get their trial next week on the Pride...:)

    Got a pair of Billy Boots, size 10. I think because of the eva material, they are harder than hell
    to get on and off. A lot harder than my Xtra Tuffs

    Shimano goes up to size 13 $70.00, Gill boots have 14's and are $50.00. Let us know how the Gill's fit, I like some arch support, so if they have that I'm getting some...

    I can't wear Xtra Tuff's. I bought a pair years ago before my Vikings and they killed my feet. I need a flat sole. I got the Gills in the mail the other day, I think they will do the job nicely. Report next weekend.
