I want to love these but can't even get them on
These are high quality and super warm but the ankle neoprene is so small that I cannot even come close to even getting them on.

Best boots I’ve owned. Period.
I’ve been a waterman my entire life. Growing up in Virginia, we chase winter swells to colder water in hopes of cold, uncrowded tubes. Ive spent 20+ years going through 7mm winter boots that either thinned in the sole, or leaked water and blew up like an inflatable pool toy. I cannot say anything about the YULEX round toe 7mm, other than no more qu... Read Moreestion of what boots will keep me in the water longer without compromising traction, or flexibility. After comparing the competition for years, it’s settled. These are the best deep winter boots you can get. I bought them at full price and could have easily gotten another brand at a much smaller price. Good boots aren’t cheap, cheap boots aren’t good. Bottom line. Thanks for the great product.
These booties are so comfy! They are a Christmas present so we have not worn them into the water just yet, but are excited to do so. I read reviews prior to ordering and decided to size up. My hubby typically wears a 10-10 1/2, but I purchased the 12's for him and they fit like a glove. I wear a 9 in women's but decided to size up to a 10... Read More, and they are about a half size too big, not enough to cause issues, but a slight bagginess in the toes.
These boots fit well, true to size. Only bummer is that I can feel water entering them. It does warm up quickly and act as more insulation, but a better seal would be nice. Also, I got a massive fin cut on these in my second time wearing them, and the repair that Patagonia did was AWESOME. Thanks!
I read other write ups about sizing and worried if the size 13 would fit. I’m not sure how shoes are sized. I have shoes that fit perfectly that are 13, but some 12 1/2 work. These 13s fit perfectly. Since I’m land locked I actually bought these to ride my bike on wet days to work and they are great. Dry and warm. Love them.
I wear a size ten and a half shoe so I started out ordering a size 11 booties. When they came i couldn't even get my big toe in them. Id guess they would fit someone with a size 9 foot. So, i exchanged for a size 12 booties. These I was able to get my foot in, but, super tight. I'm not sure if a size 13 would fit or not, so im keeping the... Read More size 12`s, and hope that they stretch out. The water is not cold enough yet to try these out.....i got them for when the water turns really cold. So, the moral of the story is; the sizing of these booties is messed up I guy with a size 10 1/2 foot shouldn't have to order a size 13 booty. Anyway, Thats it. ( I got them on sale, so all in all its still a good day.).
Hi Dennis, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear about the sizing issues you've experienced. If the size 12 booties don't end up working out, you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return).
I think this material is a little easier on/off than neoprene which is a godsend for booties. Female with slim feet wears women’s 9.5 shoe size and the 9 in these fits perfectly. Initially around the house I was worried too tight but in the water they were great nice and snug and didn’t get too heavy/full of boot juice. Warm in 45F can’t wait to tr... Read Morey colder!
Warm, flexible, delightful
I bought these for the frigid Maine waters this winter when my old booties weren't cutting it. I'm so happy I invested - they kept my feet toasty in 34 degree water! Size up as they run pretty small. I wear a size 7.5 women's shoe and I ended up with a size 8 in these.
Great flexibility, a little colder
In 39 degree water in Maine, the new R5 Bootie is much more flexible that the previous R5 Bootie. It gives better foot feel, but isn't as warm as the last-gen R5 Bootie. The cold is most noticeable the top of the forefoot, but the lighter, flexible quality is worth the extra chill. And as others have said, it's a little tight on the toes,... Read More but never uncomfortable.
I'm someone who easily has a meltdown when my hands and/or feet get cold... Luckily it's not an issue with these boots. Extremely comfortable and extremely warm. I can't believe I (almost) look forward to putting on my R4 suit and these boots in 30 degree air temps and 45 degree water temps!
Well... warm and perfect function
Got myself a set of these here r5 booties... and they fit my foot bang on. I wear an 11... the big toe just touches the end..when in the water once they swell up and hold water they expand and still fit well. Bottom line they are super warm. Out here on the canadian coast it's still not to cold (late Sept early oct) and these things were like... Read More having my feet in a warm bath water while I waited for wave sets. All the nice. Bottoms grip the board extremely well even when i nose ride (i dont wax the nose). Was worried when I got them with the softer thread but they work great. Negative... the strap works for me but it definitely should be less long.. alot hangs past the velcro pads. Ultimately these are on the highest end for price so how they nobbed that up I fail to see. The fit for my wife was to small so they are sending a size up... and she normally fits the size 7 in xcel. They dont dry well... so I mean... that's typical but these are worse than others for moisture retention and already have a good ripe smell. (That's life surfing cold) I love the tucked under wetsuit approach over other styles. I usually rock thinner boots for the split toe but I think these are worth it. Honestly never had a warmer boot. I recommend highly. Plus natural rubber for the win!
