Product Care

Footwear Care:

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.

Not bad but not great. Review by Smallmouth Whisperer
Overall

Smallmouth Whisperer 9/17/2016

I mostly wet wade Mid-West streams and small rivers for smallmouth bass, so I get into all kinds of bottom types. From gravel, small rocks, boulders, sand and mud. When I first tried these shoes I was very pleased on how comfortable they were. An average day wadding is 8 hours in the water (I do wear neoprene socks for added comfort) and have had no real issues with traction other than mud. Especially trying to get out of the water on a muddy bank but the comfort outweighs that minor issue. The real issue I have is the durability of the shoe. The soles are fine. the wear well and are not to rigged. It's the uppers were I have issues. After only about 10 times in the water this year the uppers started get worn badly and some of the seams of started to come apart. I never have minded spending money on something that will last, but get disappointed when they don't. Simms has a reputation for selling quality products, but you pay for it too. These shoes: Comfort, workability yes, durability, not so much,

Excellent lightweight confortable wading shoes Review by Ivan
Overall

Ivan 8/27/2015

Great shoes on rip-rap and tidal flats. Lightweight, comfortable, and drains super fast. Good traction on rocks. I used it extensively in Florida. Not suitable for waing on mud flats because it came off easily when sink into soft mud. After 16 months of extensive use, the fabric started to get damaged by oyster shells but still holding up OK. Good shoes for its value.

Need cleats Review by Sandburg
Overall

Sandburg 8/27/2015

Out of the box the traction was great but after 3 months of moderate wear, I feel like I'm wearing ice skates. I fell twice and slipped on just about every rock I walked across on a recent trip to my usual creek that really isn't all that difficult to get around on (basically rounded and flat stones in all sizes). I put on my Simms Vapors boot (without studs) and was much more stable, it was night and day. It seemed like as soon as the ripraps got wet, it was like being on ice. The Ripraps are very comfortable, keep small rocks out and they dry fast but I'm sorry to say that I'm afraid to wear them again on anything more than gravel without putting in a couple studs on each sole.

Excellent wet wading light shoe Review by Charlie
Overall

Charlie 7/5/2015

I really appreciate the degree of thought that has gone into designing this shoe. I have had a couple pairs of similar wet wading shoes made by other companies and the RipRap is far superior. I fish the high WV mountain streams all spring, summer and fall in this type wading shoe with only thin polypropyleneIfooties for some added comfort. It is the little things that really make the difference with the RipRap: the tread grips the rocky surfaces that most often encounter and I have not slipped while wearing these shoes, they are very light and I find that I do not tire as easily wearing these shoes, the fit is perfect and the insole totally comfortable, the tie string and zip lock work flawlessly, the tabs at the heal for pulling the shoes on is perfectly sized unlike some others I have owned, the shoe drains and drys perfectly and quickly when turned upside down for a few hours and the support around the foot is excellent. It is pretty obvious that some of your guys tested these shoes and made meaningful recommendations for making these shoes function the way a crazy fishermen wants things to work.

Wish I found these long ago Review by Brookies
Overall

Brookies 6/28/2015

Don't know how long these have been produced but these are by far the best wading shoes I've ever owned. I've owned 9 different kinds over the years and none even came close to these. You can hike for miles on trails and through the woods just like a hiking shoe and once you get to the water they grip better than any other wading shoe out there. I've only used them about a dozen times so far but they seem very well made and aren't showing any signs of wear.
I'm buying another pair in case they change or discontinue them.

Please make a high top Review by Sinking
Overall

Sinking 6/16/2015

Waded all day in these shoes along with neoprene socks and they were very comfortable. My only issue is when I ran into mud. I kept losing them and had to dig them out. Need a high top version!

These are HUGE Review by Fish101
Overall

Fish101 5/21/2015

These are absolute huge. Order 1-2 sizes lower. If you're an 11 order a 9. They are definitely made to have a neoprene booty inside, which is counter-intuitive with wet wading. Most people wet wade with no sock, or a thin sock; so these are sized WAY too big.

Otherwise, great shoe. Think Simms.. Think. Wet wading is with a thin or no-sock. Kinda common sense.

I have two pair in reserve Review by Ralph
Overall

Ralph 4/14/2015

I live in these things and burn through a pair and a half each season. I have two pair, unused in the closet in case they get discontinued or "improved"! I get blisters where the top of the heel rubs, but that is easily cured by wearing a pair of the thin Simms neoprene socks. They are flexible which at times make them more stable than cleated hard footbed wading shoes. Love them!

Excellent shoe for saltwater wading Review by Mike
Overall

Mike 2/4/2015

I have had these shoes for 3 years and have used them extensively in Ascension Bay and Christmas Island and they have worked great! They work well with wet wading socks or bare feet equally. They are very quick to pull on if casting from the deck of the boat in bare feet and have to get out quickly to pursue a fish on a hard or abrasive/sharp bottom.
