Great boots, though I agree the laces are a bit short. This is the most comfortable yet most stable boot I've tried. i don't agree with some here about the fit. Buy the next size up, if you want to fit thick socks and neoprene booties in the boots.

The last pair of Simms boots I purchased lasted me 10 years, hoping for the same here. Chose Vibram over felt, but would definitely recommend purchasing cleats to accompany as those freestone rocks are still slick.

Nice boots by Simms. Sturdy, comfortable, and not too heavy. I would recommend getting boots true to size as i am a size 9 in a regular shoe and the size 9 boots fit perfectly with waders.

Simms knocked it out of the park (or stream) with these boots. Fitts true to size and the finish is excellent. Perfect compliment for the G4 waders. Looking forward to getting many years of use out of them.

These boots are awesome and are exactly what you would expect from Simms at this price point, but with one caveat the laces are way too short and so far I'm not aware of any plans to fix this problem. Buy the size you normally wear for street shoes, Simms has booties and heavy socks factored into the sizing.
The boots deserve 5 stars but with the laces problem I can only give them a 4.

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.
