I've been wearing ProLine Stocking foot breathables for a few years now and they've been fine by me. I'm fairly tough on waders too - long walks, barnacle encrusted rocks, leave em in the truck 24/7, never wash em ............ (Can't comment on boot foot - no such thing as bootfoots that fit my superwide feet)
I get a spring a fall and another spring before they start bleeding (and stinking
). I could probably treat them with that stuff you use in the washing machine but for around $90 a pair I figure they don't owe me anything and I just get another pair. The warrantee is one year.
Did get one pair that were duds, bled through right away. ProLine had another pair to me in a week.
I have em paired with Simms Freestone studded felt wading boots. Great boots for small money (I got mine on sale for $60) I haven't needed korkers since I got em and that counts fishing on the snot rocks at Montauk! They are a bit heavy but I consider it a fair trade off. I have some spots that entail a long walk with sand to fish in the middle and rocks to climb at the end. Carrying korkers around is a PIA and more than once I've gotten lazy and been on those rocks sans spikes - not a smart thing to do. Better slightly heavy boots to risking a cracked skull.
