I am sorry to write this reviewThis is the only 1 star review I’ve made in my life. I owned the previous version of Simms wet wading sandal and still have them. They were outstanding. I purchased this newest version for me (and my wife) and they have been a poor product from the first day we used them. Both men’s and women’s versions were narrower than the previous sandal. She quit wearing them after using them once and still tries to sell them off and on Craigslist. I liked my first sandals so much that I figured I could make it work. I used them about 10 days of fishing (maybe) and the outside black tred started to come off of one of my shoes (I’d include pictures if I could) I thought maybe a bad shoe, I have a lot of Simms stuff which has been awesome, I will give them the benefit of the doubt. Two more days of fishing all of the black tred on the sole starts to come off the other shoe. I buy these shoes because they should have better grip than a pair of Keen’s or Merrill’s or any other type of sandal. I pay a to have another pair of sandals specifically for fishing because the price of slipping in a river can be high and painful. These sandals with the tred tearing off are now no good and really unacceptable. I thought about calling Simms (maybe I should have) before writing this review but I didn’t want them to think that I was trying to hold them “over the barrel.” I also wish someone had written a review about this shoe befor I purchased 2 pairs, but because I had a long history with Simms products being great (everything else I have of theirs still is) I trusted them. Bottom line is that I think Simms tried to lower their cost on these sandals (that’s my only guess) and they turned out a horrible product. SAVE YOUR $. DON’T BUY THESE SHOES! Again, all my other Simms gear has been awesome.
Awesome wading sandalsI wore these for a month of fishing in New Zealand last winter. Not only did they offer great protection with the covered toes, they provided good traction to boot. Comfortable to wear all day. More recently, i wore these on a wilderness canoeing trip in the Quetico for 10 days. As primary footgear for wet footing and on portages the traction and comfort were a big help. Highly recommended!
Wearing Nurse's Wading SandalsWhy does Simms insist on changing something that is perfect. I love the company and they make quality products. However, they insist on changing things that are perfect, just for the sake of change. The Stream Treads were the best water sandals on the market. I had to get a pair of these on a trip and they are made well, but they look like nurses shoes/grandparent shoes. My buddies said they would rather walk barefoot on rocks than wear these in public. They did the same thing when they stopped making the Guide shorts with a cotton blend. The new nylon ones are average while the old ones are the most comfortable shorts ever. Once you have something great, stop trying to improve on perfection Simms! Make it a classic like Patagonia does with some of their items. Change isn't always positive. Great company though and I do love Simms. Just bring back the classics.
