Wading boots can be stupid expensive. There is no way around that. However, I have beat the crap out of at least 6 different brands/model boots over the years ranging from entry level to flagship. These are by far the most comfortable wading boots that I have found. Good cushioning, sturdy uppers, and rock-solid soles, so you can hike miles in and wedge your feet between rocks or stand on sharp ledges all day. The traction is no better or worse than any other rubber sole. I don't use them at all without aluminum cleats and I end up replacing 25-50% of the cleats every couple of months. Until I figure out how to get a robot billy-goat to carry me around the river so I can fish in pajamas and bedroom slippers, I'll be buying these boots every couple of years.

Picked up a pair and these are rock solid. a bit heavier that I like but handles the rocks and slate of the utah terrian. expect to last years and not fall apart like the POS that I replaced these for.

Had a pair of leather Simms guide boots that were 15-20 years old with felt soles. Needed a non-felt replacement that was a size larger. These fit the bill. These seem very durable and are comfortable. Can't go wrong with Simms.

Awesome boots that are not heavy or klunky like most other wading boots. Fits well and the vibram sole holds up nicely were I fish and often walk great distances.

I bought these as a replacement to my korkers for winter, fall, and spring fishing. These are as rugged and durable as they come. I bought a pair of patagonia's to compare too, and these fit way better. Different construction, but more shoe like that the patagonia, which led me to send those back!

Very comfortable boot out of the box. The G3 is easy to get in and out of. Held up nicely during a short hike to my fishing spot. Excellent traction in small creek beds and larger rivers. No fatigue after all day use. Pleased with the purchase.
