    I'd like to find a pair of breathable waders in size 15. Anyone know where to get 'em?

    I am also a 16, some boots (Danner) I can fit in a 15. I am not sure how specialized they are, but for basic hunting boots the Redwing store in Anchorage carries big sizes.

    For waders and such, a 15 ususually works well enough for me.

    I wear Cabela's breatheable boot foot. I use them for duck hunting and they work great.

    Cabelas. Got some a few years back for fly fishing float trips. Super nice waders. The only other option I have found will cost about $700. That is the Simms waders made with custom neoprene booties and then about $250 for custom wading boots. Looked into this myself, but won't spend $700 on waders. The Cabelas are about $180 and work great. Below is a link.

    For size 16 boots, look at Danner and Lowa. I wear size 15 and these are the brands I buy because they are some of the few folks that make high quality boots in this size. Most others stop at size 13 and 14

    You poor guys, I was nervous as a teen when my feet blew past an 11, thankfully they stoped at a normal human size of 12! I can't imagine having to search that hard for boots, it is bad enough trying to find other gear to fit at my size.
