- GREAT...again.. Review by Dave
OverallLove it! Bootie is getting a great deal of use on sand and softer bottoms as well....great traction and no slip from suction of the of the softer muddy areas. Love the wider toe just like the Mariner shoes I have...so so comfortable for the hours of wading I do here in FL. When done at waters edge, quick shake of my legs clears zipper of sand and off they go. Another great product guys and gals. Tight lines!

- Good quality but liner aggravating Review by Floriday
OverallBoogie has a "liner" on bottom or maybe called and in-sole. Every time the boot is removed this thing dislodges and requires a wrestling match to put back in. If not in correctly must start process all over again. Not sure why it's in there. Otherwise great quality. Tough sole. Zipper no problem but I always rinse with fresh water.
Bit disappointed. A redesign without insole and it would be great boot.

- Great flats boots, some fit challenges Review by fryrhls
OverallHave tried them on the flats in ascension bay and they worked great so far. Like some other reviewers I found they fit very tight. I wear size 11 street shoe, ordered 12 to wear with thin wading socks, but can only wear socks if the insoles are removed. I would order two sizes up if I was to do it again

- Great boots! Review by Texan
OverallI purchased this boots a year ago and will never buy another "cheap" pair of neoprene wading boots again. They are great for wading the bay's along Texas' coast. I fish over 100 days a year and 99% of that is wading. These boots have stood up to the abuse and I give them 5 stars. They are not overly heavy, supply ample arch support, and are super comfortable. Addressing the "zipper sticking" problem, after each outing, I wash off with fresh water, then once dry, spray a stream of rem-oil or any other oil. The zipper stays smooth. The only issue I have had is the Velcro strap over the zipper. When wading mud, it will detach, but it's no problem to me. If your thinking about getting them, you can't go wrong with these.

- Comfy wading boots Review by Stinky Pants Fishing
OverallThese are the most comfortable wading shoes I have found. I especially like the wider toe area compared to others that almost come to a point and crowd your foot. I have had mine 2 years and they are going strong. Great wading boot!

- Perfect for Tailing Redfish in the Lowcountry Review by Cameron
OverallAfter walking the grass flats barefoot for a while I got tired of the occasional spartina stalk or crab/shell getting the bottom of my foot. I bought these and they obviously made a huge difference. The soles of these booties are very tough but somehow they are still extremely comfortable. After wading around for awhile I forgot I had them on. They allowed me to stop thinking about the best place to put my feet and focus 100% on making the perfect cast to that spotted tail breaking the surface in front of me.

- Well-made but tight... Review by EddC.
OverallWell-constructed & definitely well-designed but I found them tight in size. I am always a perfect size 10 in footwear but these booties will require me to re-order a size 11. I walk rocky beaches in the Northeast US & look forward to wearing a pair of these Booties which fit me more comfortably.

- Small!!!!! Review by Sam
OverallThese are great flats wading boots, but they run really small. I wear a size 11 shoe and have tried sizes 11 and 12 and both are really tight. This is with a relatively thin sock (just thick enough to keep the doctor flies from biting through). I have ordered a size 13 and hope they will fit.

- Comfortable but problems with zipper Review by Fisherman
OverallThe bootie is very comfortable and easy to walk the flats in Andros. They would have received 5 stars except the zippers became stuck each time I wore them. Sand would jam them and I would have to slide them off. Flushing them with fresh water would eventually free them up.

- Great except zipper Review by Norm
OverallI purchased them to use for bone fishing in the Bahamas. I found that I had to buy two sizes larger. They were comfortable and worked very well except for the zippers. The sand would get the zippers stuck so I could not unzip them. I had to flush them with fresh water after I got my foot out of the boot. This the first Simms product that I've had a problem with. I contacted Simms and did not get a good solution.
