Boots

Do any venders carry the hip waders attached to a pair of leather boots like Valley Creek use too?

Leather/cordura boot

I wish someone would start putting chap a good GORE-TEX
boot. The problem is there isnít many options in a leather gore-tex boot with a good lug sole.
The danner boot that kelly lights sell is junk. When you buy a boot and they tell you to spray them down with camp dry every now and then, thatís a problem.... I hunt with a guy that has a few pair of these and his feet stay wet.
I sent the amish a pair of cordura rocky cornstalkers with gore-tex last year. Ended up sending them to them twice and they still leak. They boots are awesome. They leak where the chaps are sewn on. After $30 worth of flex seal in the back yard I can now cross a narrow creek over my knees and not get my ankles wet.
Do any of you people in the business have good success putting the chaps on the cordura boots? I have another new in box pair I would love chaps on.
I hate most of these new style boots. A good lug sole gore-Tex Wellington with chaps on them is the only way to go.
I think the market is wide open for someone to come up with a boot/chap combo like this.

Boots

I put clear silicone bead on stitching line and spread it out about 1 inch each side to fix leaks on boots

Would love to say yes but not much of a b.s type person..We have sewn quite a few pair of wellingtons over the last few years..100 percent is success is not likely..I Wear a pair of muck wellingtons now that have been decent but our sport is probably the hardest sport on any type of boot..Had a buddy guide and judge last weekend and walked 22 miles in the casts he was on and honestly his boots will not last as long as a fellow that might walk a mile a night..Constant pulling the boot on and off also ,rolling chap up and down put strains on the glue we all of use..Great thing today though the customer can reglue and help longetivity of use..Usually the first thing I hear was the way wick did it ... I was in business then,have some of his old adds and sold alot of his products against him at the first event he ever set up..All of us would like to have access to some of the old materials but Im afraid that is not going to happen..All of this is a long story but the short version is we go to lengths to make our products the best possible..We will continue to do a few pair but in my 35 years of business if you wear a boot like that every night in the swamps of south carolina or the deep south they just dont hold up..I squirrel hunt in mine dont hestitate to cross creeks ankle to knee deep and can live with mine

Thanks for the reply. I may send you a pair sometime. I would rather deal with some dampness here and there and keep running the Wellington type boot.
I will say it seems the chap seals better to a leather boot rather than the cordura.
I have a pair of red-wing pecos with gore-Tex I had chaps put on and you can stand hip deep in them and they wonít leak. Problem is they are very slick to walk in.
I canít find a leather gore-Tex Wellington on the market with a lug sole. Thatís why I turned to the cornstalker.
I like the look of the danner boot but if it not gore-Tex I donít but it most of the time.
Thanks.
