Hi all, i need to buy a cheap pair of wading boots.
I always try to take a spare pair when i go on a trip away for a few days.
I was looking at the MK2 Bison boots on line, has anyone used these?
I take a size 10 shoe, what size should i go for?
It says to go one size up, but I've heard they come big anyway.
Any other thoughts on any other brands of cheap boots?

I have no idea if the Bison boots I bought recently for £30 are mk2's or not, but they look fine to me even if I haven't been able to use them yet.
I went 2 sizes up to allow for thick socks and they don't feel like clowns shoes when on. If they were 3 sizes up I don't think it would matter, being too tight would though.

Thanks lads, the Decathlon boots look interesting, i do usually have felt soles with studs as i wade mostly over slippery rocks..

I use my Patagonia foot tractor with aluminium bars on treacherous rivers, but when the wading is easy, the no nonsense light decathlon are a pleasure to wear!
I have not tried it on mine but the sole is tick enough that you could maybe put studs in there.
