Description

Sight fishing keeps you on your feet and your eyes on the water. Of course, patience goes a long way when it comes to anticipating the elusive tug, but so does comfort. We designed our Challenger Boat Shoe to make standing comfortably all day with secure footing its priority. With the Right Angle® footbed shaped to promote good, relaxed posture, and a siped rubber outsole to grip wet skiff decks, you'll have more energy to focus on fishing. A built-in drainage system works with the mesh upper to help keep your feet dry, so you're not left with the soggy sneaker feeling if you step in the water.

Features

  • TPU reinforced heel counter & forefoot support 
  • Built‐in drainage system in upper
  • Hydrophobic, high abrasion synthetic & mesh upper 
  • Siped outsole for maximum slip resistance
  • No‐line‐catch upper design
APPROX. WEIGHT: 25.3 oz.

Footwear Care

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.

  1. Perfect!

    100%

    I love the fit of the size 14!! I tend to have a standard/wide foot and these are Perfect! Thanks, Simms!
  2. Best Boat Shoe

    100%

    I have owned these for a little over a month and can honestly say they are the most comfortable shoe I own, and they drain and shed water like it is going out of style! I love these things and wear them everywhere!
  3. Comfortable, Great Grip, Lightweight

    100%

    I was extremely surprised to see a 14 when I was looking through sizes and decided to blindly order a pair. Usually if a store even has 14's it's a struggle to find one that fits right. So I was nervous but alas it was all for naught.

    Shoes fit perfect, the grip is excellent and they are very lightweight. It was like wearing a sock. Very glad I pulled the trigger!
  4. Nice shoes

    80%

    Just picked up a pair of these from Mad River Outfitters. Nice shoes, seem like good quality. I really like the look of them. I had to replace the insoles immediately because these shoes have to much arch support for me. I wish Simms offered these is a wider width, they are a bit tight but I feel they will loosen up with use. I'll update after a season of use.
  5. Best shoe on the boat

    100%

    I have been wearing these shoes all year on the boat and they are by far the best I have ever worn. I really like the tight feel around my foot and the right angle foot bed for support, the way they breathe and keep your feet cool during the long hot days on the water is amazing. In the past I would be out there and my feet would get hot and tired taking my attention off fishing and on to my hot tired feet. with these shoes I can stand all day long without fatigue.
  6. Great new shoe

    100%

    After wearing the my previous Simms shoe for the last 4 years, I finally bought the new pair. They are excellent. I am in and out of the boat and scrambling around rivers all day and these shoes are perfect. Comfortable, easy to slip on and off and of course good looking!

  8. Great Sailing Regatta Shoe

    100%

    I just used these in a North American one design sailing Championship Regatta. This was the true test and included wet and dry conditions, windy and light during the week. The foot support is by FAR better than any sailboat shoe you will find on any sailing gear site. After a week on the water, the dock, the clubhouse, the blacktop, they were a little smelly. Threw them in washing machine and they are perfect. These are the best sailboat shows I have ever had and I compete and have to have great shoes or performance is inhibited. I hope they don’t stop making these.
