The ultimate bootie for hard-charging pursuits, Simms' Zipit II goes on and off fast thanks to a cavernous gusseted opening and YKK® corrosion-resistant zippers. Wear them barefoot or stick a sock in it while storming big surf or skinny flats. And source bomber durability via perforated neoprene uppers, vulcanized rubber overlays, and the puncture-free footing of a full length Bi-Fit™ lasting board.

I purchased them to use for bone fishing in the Bahamas. I found that I had to buy two sizes larger. They were comfortable and worked very well except for the zippers. The sand would get the zippers stuck so I could not unzip them. I had to flush them with fresh water after I got my foot out of the boot. This the first Simms product that I've had a problem with. I contacted Simms and did not get a good solution.

I bought these boots about 3 weeks ago and these are the best I have used by far. Here in Grand Cayman I spend most of my time wading for bonefish. The bottom can range from sand, mud, grass or urchin filled limestone bottom. These boots handle it all. Easy on,easy off and a breeze to clean up and let dry. Great boot.
Simms nailed it on this one.

Tried them in the summer in Potomac and Shenandoah rivers for wading. Worked well in the mud and rocks. No rocks get in. Comfortable in hot, humid weather. Good foot protection.

Fit well with some arch support. I use them on the Gulf coast of North Florida. I can wear them in my sea kayak and get out and wade fish. Try it.

My review after 3 months of use wading inshore in SW FL.
Common Bottom Conditions:
- Loose Shell
- Sticky Mud
- Lime Stone
- Edges of Oyster Bars
Most trips inshore here in Pine Island Sound require sometime in the water. Chasing redfish and snook deep in the back country sticks your feet into a variety of conditions. The Zipit Bootie II have done a great job keeping my feet safe and keeping shells and debris out. Very comfortable for extended wear and reasonably cool in Florida heat. (I will normally unzip them when running from spot to spot).
From the ankle up, the bootie is a nice, tight fit. It's great for staying on your foot in nasty mud and keeping shells rocks out at the same time.
I try my best to avoid walking through oyster bars, as these little grey razor blades will chop up any shoe, but with careful exposure, the exterior doesn't show any tears or rips.
Highly recommended for Florida wading.

I recently bought these for surf fishing in Central CA (and wherever else I fish these next few years) - they are fantastic. Comfy for my flat feet and very lightweight - exactly what I was looking for.
