Big DisappointmentI bought these sandals at our local fly shop on a 25% off sale. Trusting in the Simms name I didn't try them on (my bad). They are difficult to get on but after pushing my foot forward hard enough, I was able to succeed in the effort. The next thing I noticed is that the side straps come up well onto my ankle bones. This is both annoying and uncomfortable, and none of my other sandals do this. I'm thinking of getting some wading socks to wear with these sandals so as to mitigate the odd fit. Normally, my Keen water sandals would do just fine for wade fishing, but I like the idea of having felt soles since some of our rivers in western Montana have slippery rocks. Make sure that you try before you buy if you are intend on getting a pair of these sandals.
Decent salt wading shoeI don't like typical saltwater flats boots. They offer good protection but they are generally not breathable and make my feet really hot. I got these before going to Belize and they worked really well. I knew I would get a piece or two of rock in my shoe but it was easy to rinse out. My feet were far more comfortable and they gave good protection over the rocky bottom.
These started out a bit tight. I usually wear a size 9.5-10 depending on manufacturer. I got a size 10 and had to really stretch the backs to get over my feet. They stretched a bit when wet but I imagine that I could have easily worn a 10.5. You might want to consider going up ½ a size.
