Source classic style and bomber durability via a synthetic full-grain leather and scratch rubber upper. A neoprene-lined collar enhances all-around hiking and wading capabilities. And navigate the slick and unruly with the appreciated agility of Simms' proven StreamTread™ platform.
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.
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.
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.)
Not all styles available in all sizes; please see individual boot for size specifics

Everything was fine at first but less than a year of wear and both shoes tore around the seam of the big toe. I paid less than half for a pair that lasted much longer before tearing. Gonna try to get as much wear as I can.

Had to buy a pair in a hurry due to damage to another pair of boots these seemed to be the best bang for the buck and they exceeded my expectations!!!!

Great boot and outstanding quality. Fit was great as I always had issues with width but the EEE was plenty big enough. Zero sand inside the boot after 2 hard wade fishing days. Great purchase

Three years ago I bought several new pairs of Simms Freestone boots with the stream tread rubber soles for my guide service clients to use for both wade trips & float trips. These boots get worn about 100-120 guide trips per year, they are all still in excellent condition, durable and reliable wading boots. Simms are the best wade boots on the market.

These boots are nice and for the price, you can't beat them. I have paired these up with a new pair of waders and they have performed excellently. Good support, very comfortable and they seem to be built quite well. They do take a little while to dry, however. This would only be an issue if you were traveling with them and HAD to pack them up wet. Overall, nice product Simms.
