Think the Yucatan or the Bahamas. The draw of blue sky and sandy ocean bottom is in the simplicity of the experience, not to mention the tropical weather. If you've tried wading in water sandals or barefoot, you'll understand why we developed our Zipit Bootie II. The low-profile design moves easily in the water and protects you from shells and unseen objects in the sand. The neoprene build hugs your ankle to help seal out sand and debris, while the double vulcanized rubber outsole and internal last create a puncture- resistant footbed, so you can focus on the water and not worry about your feet.
All Simms outerwear features nylon YKK® zippers to minimize corrosion and provide high performing, durable wear.

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.
