had my eyes on these bad boys for a while. GREAT boot and comfortable. A bit heavier than expected but SIMMS quality.

These are such a great wading boot for the price! Very heavy duty and sturdy. I also really like that the rubber bottoms allow for adding the hardbite cleats, which I also purchased. Can't beat the price and service!

These are my favorite wading boots. I fished with these all last season and I could not be happier with them.

Great boots, put a lot of wear both in and hiking to the stream in these guys. I use a pair of Simms waders for cool/cold weather and wet wed with a pair of Korkers in the summer. Only received four stars because I'm an 11 1/2 and had to buy a size up - meaning I've got some extra room, especially when wet wading. Would highly recommend buying studs along with these boots too. Might as well get everything in one swoop instead of slipping into a creek and then realizing you should buy studs...

These are great boots. I fish i very large rocky terrain and they keep my ankles very secure.

I have now spent over a month with these boots and they are great. You can't go wrong with these. Very nice

I have recently made the switch from korkers to the Simms freestone wading boots. I found myself replacing the soles way too often and it just wasn’t cost effective for me. I feel that for the money, these boots are tough to beat. They really seem to grip the river bottom better than other boots that I have tried in the past. I typically wear a size 10 shoe, ordered the size 11 and the fit is perfect. Well with the money!

I would say these boots are among the best of wading boots under $200 price tag. They are way lighter than I expected and they absolutely did a great job on providing good grips on slippery surface.

Thank you Simms for making sz 16 & thank you REELFLYROD for the good price, prompt delivery & xlnt customer service.
The Freestones are a sturdy well made boot @ a great price imo. Much improved over a Simms boot I had years ago. These offer hiking boot type support & have a very stable base which will help on long days afoot. Only slight negative is with neoprene lining takes a bit longer to dry but does not affect me recommending them.

These are far better than my old Simms boots. My old boots (14 years old) are still fine, but my feet have grown a tiny bit since I bought them in college, and they have become too tight. Don't get me wrong, I had the budget boots in the past, and they fact they are still running strong after all this time is a testament to their durability. These have plenty of room in the toe box, and the rubber sole helps protect the ecosystem from nasty bugs. They aren't as heavy as my old boots either, so hiking deep into blue lines will be a lot more comfortable!
