Felt outsole for slippery aquatic environments.
Compatible with Hodgman H-Lock removable sole boots.
Interchangeable sole system for versatility in any condition.
Switch out your soles in different rivers to prevent the spread of invasive species.
Selecting the optimum sole for various river and surf conditions can spell the difference between a great day in the water versus wading while not knowing what the next step might bring. Wade with confidence because the Hodgman™ H-Lock™ interchangeable sole system is designed to allow anglers to adapt to any condition.
To remove soles simply lift the tab located on the front inside edge of the sole and depress the button located at the rear of the shoe. Then twist the sole off of the shoe. It’s that simple.
Other removable sole systems can work themselves free over time, flap open in sticky mud or have attachment straps that can break. The H-Lock interchangeable sole system locks into place until you decide that it’s time to change your sole and ensures a secure fit.
Now you can buy one pair of shoes for various wading conditions. Utilize a studded sole one day for added grip in treacherous terrains, then switch to a non-studded sole the next when drift boating your favorite river. Additionally trading out felt soles between rivers or switching to another sole type can help stop the spread of invasive species.

Although we allow proper room in the boot for the neoprene stocking foot, we recommend you find your regular shoe size in the Traditional Shoe Size section and order the corresponding Hodgman wade boot in the Recommended Hodgman Wade Boot section. Typically this is one size up for men and one size down for women. Additionally if you wear a half size typically going up one half size will suffice (For example if you wear size 9.5 then a 10 will typically fit comfortably).
