I wore a pair of Xtratuf's iconic 15-inch-high brown-and-tan Legacy "Alaska boots" for five years and got splashed more than once. Last fall, the company brought out its new Neoprene Deck Boot Hi — legitimate 16-inchers with Xtratuf's nonslip chevron soles on the rubber bottoms. I have worn mine from Alaska's Copper River Delta to the Chesapeake Bay's Tangier Island. They fit great, wear comfortably, and cushion my feet on deck. The neoprene uppers fit snugly around my calves to keep out splashes. They have handy pull-on loops, and the heel kicks make them easy to take off at the end of the day. $99.99; xtratufboots.com
