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.
Vibram® soles boast innovative compounds and technical sole patterns, specifically developed to meet the challenges of many different environments and applications.
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.

sand collects around collarHave worn these boots on salt flats and find loose sand collecting between the boot collar and the neoprene sock. I I punched several holes in collar to let sand and water drain away, appears to fix an uncomfortable build up of sand between collar and neoprene sock.

Not durable at allI've bought these boots brand new, purposely for my saltwater fishing trip. Since the first day l was impressed how comfortable was wading in it. The problems started at second day of fishing when I've noticed signs of quick wear. Destruction was progressing very fast, at the end of 8th day fishing trip the boots were completely destroyed with rubber reinforcements cracked and peelled off in many places and sole pierced in toe area of one boot.
Summarising I'm very disappointed with quality of this product that does not fit Simms brand nor high price tag. I have been using different Simms products for many years, usually being satisfied with its features and long last, this is the first so unpleasant surprise. I cannot afford buying new pair of wading boots for each trip!
Nice fitNice fit. Comfortable for wading without waders.
Nice fitNice fit and comfortable for wading without wader.
great bootI've just finished my third season wet wading freestone rivers and can't say enough good things about this boot. Comfortable fit, keeps sand and gravel out, great grip, only minor cosmetic wear showing. They are standing up extremely well given the amount of hiking and wading they've been put through.
