Men's Wading Boot Size Chart
To allow proper room for the neoprene stockingfoot, find your regular shoe size in the right-hand columns and order the corresponding Simms Boot in the first column. This will typically be one size up from your normal shoe size for men and one size down for women (ie: a women's USA size 8 would take a men's boot size 7).

- Product Care
Boa® Boot Care:
For proper cleaning of your boots to descrease the likelihood of spreading Aquatic Invasive Species, please reference our CleanStream™ page.
If using in saltwater always clean and rinse to prevent corrosion.
Use a brush to remove dust and dirt. Choose an old vegetable brush or toothbrush. Do not use bar soap or detergents.
Do not place wet boots close to a heat source (fireplace, campfire, wood stove, radiator, heater, sunny windowsill) as this can weaken adhesives and cause materials to become brittle or shrink.
Dry using natural methods (air dry) and try to keep them out of the sun for long periods of time. Boots dry faster when positioned upside-down. If desired, stuff a sheet or two of newspaper into each boot to absorb moisture. Change the paper each hour.
If you see any mold on your boots, brush in a mixture of 80% water and 20% vinegar.
Store boots in a place where temperatures are stable and normal. Do not store footwear in attics, garages, car trunks or any unventilated spaces.
Never put boots in washing machine.
Boa® Closure System Care:
We recommend regular cleaning of the eyelets and reel mechanism to prevent sand and silt from prematurely wearing on the cables. Use the tool provided to remove the reel and rinse thoroughly on a regular basis. This will ensure a long life for your Boa® system.
Boa® cables will need replacing over time just like a normal lacing system.
Boa® replacement cables are available on the Simms website, directly from Boa® or you can purchase spares at most fly shops. Always a good idea especially on destination trips.
CleanStream™ is a design philosophy that runs through our line of wading footwear. While not specific to a product feature, this designation does indicate that the product includes features and/or materials that are more resistant to "hitch-hiking" organisms – have less exposed stitching, fewer ridges & pockets and utilize non-absorbent materials – all making the boots easier to inspect, clean and dry faster. All of these elements assist anglers in doing their part to prevent the spread of invasive species. For more information, please visit our CleanStream™ page or these organizations: www.cleanangling.org, www.protectyourwaters.net or www.tu.org.

- Rivertec Boa Review by Silverstoat
OverallBought these boots a week ago and although a bit apprehensive of this new technology, I can honestly say they are a step change forward in comfort convenience and ease of use.
I wore them for 6 hours a day,waded in every conceivable condition, walked for miles on rough land and they remained comfortable throughout. As the cable tightens evenly there are no slack or tight points and they give you added confidence in the water.
Have tried to register them for warranty, but can't find the page on the Simms site.

- Awesome Boot! Review by Curtis
OverallI picked up a pair of these boots at Cabelas in Utah. At first I wasn't sure about the cable/ratchet system, I thought that it was like velcro for old people. However, after using them I am sold, This is a great system! Buy it and you won't regret it.
