These boots are a huge upgrade from my previous pair. Good support. Pre-marked spots for installing studs and/or cleats. Boots feel solid and durable. Just what you would expect from Simms. I wear an 8 ½ EE size shoe and the size 9 boot is a perfect fit for me. The one improvement I would suggest would be to install a D-ring on the outer tongue of the boots for the gravel guards of the waders to hook on to. My wife’s Orvis boots have this and it really helps save wear on the laces that comes from from hooking the gravel guards to those.

I purchased these boots to replace a pair of old felt soles that I have fished in for many years. I do a lot of fishing in northern New Mexico, where sharp basalt rock is common in the stream beds so I was looking for something that would hold up over time. The reinforced toe and heel make the boot super resistant to wear and tear. You do pick up some weight as a result, but they are still comfortable and don't wear my legs out to much after a long day of wading and hiking. I normally wear a size 10 and followed the recommendation that Simms gives to size up. I am glad I did because the 11 fits perfectly with both my wading socks and Orvis Ultralights. Great purchase and would high recommend!

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!
