When buying Simms, like many other quality brands, you get what you pay for. These are no exception. Yes they are a couple cents shy of 300, but I think they are worth it. Great stability, and I love the fact that they have the metal anchors in the sole of the boot for the cleats, rather than having to screw cleats right into the rubber. I wear a size 8.5-9ish in shoe size. I decided to go with a size 10. They fit well to allow for good wool wading socks and booties (but size 9 would be better for wet wading if you are looking for wet wading boots). The only downside is the extra cost for the g4 pro cleats over the regular cleats.

SIMMS did a good job with these boots. They're rather expensive, but are well designed. I got the Vibram soled boots with the matching Alumibite cleats. You can install ten cleats per boot, but it's your choice. SIMMS sells ten in a puck, so you'd need two pucks if you want to max out each boot. That's what I did. Note that you need cleats made for these boots. Though this shop had them in stock, they were not listed on their web site when I placed my order in December 2019. ( This is what's needed: G4 Pro Alumibite Cleats. ) Each cleat screws into a metal anchor. Initially the anchors have a blank plug screwed into them which need to be removed first. They provide the tool for that. This way the threads remain clean, should one decide to install the cleats at a later time. These boots are very comfortable. I found the laces a bit short, but still manageable. One of the nice features is a D ring attached to the tongue of each boot so that the gravel guard can be secured properly. I'm pleased with the purchase. Yes, the boots were rather pricey, but they're functional, comfortable, and should last quite a long time.
