I thought on buying the 'Guide Boot' from Simms but found quite a few reports from folks using them regarding shrinkage. The Orvis boots should serve well for him, I waded in their boots for at least 20 years with no complaints.
I did however finish the 2012 season with the Rivershed boots from Simms and can say that the comfort on an 18 hour 'Midnight Sun' days fishing is wonderful. I have also slept in them twice and got right back on the water with no problems
