DescriptionSimms has reintroduced felt to a selection of its wading boot line-up, including the Freestone®. Felt has solid grip, it’s lightweight, and offers advantages in certain wading environments. Please follow clean angling practices, limit felt soles to single watersheds, and help keep these vital resources healthy.

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).
(Simms Boot size 5 will fit a Youth Size 4, etc.)

- Product Care
For proper cleaning of your footwear 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. For maximum thoroughness, remove laces prior to cleaning. Use specialized boot cleaner, saddle soap or maybe a mild dishwashing soap with luke-warm water.
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.
Over time the use of leather conditioners may provide increased water repellency and can prevent cracking and drying of the leather.
Store footwear in a place where temperatures are stable and normal. Do not store footwear in attics, garages, car trunks or any unventilated spaces.
Never put footwear in washing machine.
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.
The STREAMTREAD™ platform is designed for the angling enthusiast looking for all-round, heavy-duty wading footwear. All the styles that feature the STREAMTREAD™ platform have been proividing our faithful with years of reliable, trustworthy wading confidence. The die-cut footbed offers a sturdy, wading-reading deck and the molded TPU heel clip offers secure heel-hold & lateral stability for all day wading security. Die-cut and molded single density EVA midsole creates cushioning for all day wading comfort. Die-cut, full coverage TPU retention plate allows for maximum rigidity and cleat retention for heavy duty wading. All of this wrapped in a molded VIBRAM® IDROGRIP® rubber outsole with 3MM multi-directional lugs for slip resistance in water and toe protection. Also available in a 12mm Felt outsole.
- Comfortable fit but very poor materials Review by Simon - Italy
OverallFirst Simms product for me. Really disappointed. After 50 days fishing the felt sole (studded) is completely worn expecially in toe zone. Last weekend the left sole separated from the boot while wading and almost lost it..
My old wading boots lasted more or less 250 fishing days...

- Great Boot Review by Kent
OverallThis is by far the best wading boot I have ever used.
I used this boot 4 mos. after ankle surgery for a torn tendon and
was completely amazed that I could wade pretty much wherever
I wanted at the age of 72 yrs....Kent Gilder

- Seriously Durable Review by Lyle
OverallAfter 2 seasons and 150 days fishing, these boots are still very usable. I will try to get another summer out of these and then order another pair. Simply amazing for the price.

- Best boots for the bucks!!! Review by Jeff
OverallI was glad to see you bring out felt soled freestones again. My old ones were the best boots I've owned. I put two packs of hardbite studs in them, and they offered awesome traction and comfort for 10 days of hard fishing in BC last fall. Best boots for the bucks!!
