I have a pair of Orvis felt bottom boots and I purchased them for around 125 bucks. My brother uses the Simms felt bottoms with the screws and they are a little more expensive, but he is a guide in Alaska and swears by them.. I would recommend going to Creekside in Issaquah they have a good selection and are very helpful. Good luck!! I had a friend who went fishing with me this year with rubber bottom boots, and he was so frustrated he bought a pair of the Simms the next day!
