    Default Excess neoprene around the ankle any suggestions?

    Hi There.
    I have a pair of breathable stocking foot waders which fit ok in the foot with thick socks, but there's excess neoprene around the ankle.(thin legs)
    It folds over in places, which will make it uncomfortable over time.
    Pulling them up when the boot is on helps, and keeps the excess away from the back of the boot, but I would welcome any suggestions.
    Thanks.

    Try fried bread or chips with every meal, that should help!
    My biggest worry is that when I'm dead my wife will sell my fishing kit for what I said I paid for it. from Koos Brandt.

    You could maybe try getting new boots fitted, but be careful who you use, if they are SIMMS beware any job not carried out by them negates the warranty.

    Thicker socks/ more pairs of socks might work.
    Ankle-warmers (a la Olivia Newton John in the '80s ) would pad you out if extra socks make the boots too tight. Just cut the foot off an old pair of boot socks and fold them down.
    They'll keep your ankles warm, too.

    Hope that helps.

    Wearing a wading belt may help

    Thanks for all your replies.
    I'm not sure a smaller sock would fit on a larger wader leg, though I'm sure diver Dave could advise..
    Then socks from the heel may work, I will give them a try.
    Thanks again.
