Savvy shoes for style, performance, and comfort you can wear - and wear often. Simms' new Westshore Shoe features Right Angle® Footbeds for all-day comfort, support, and superior fit. Washed canvas and scratch rubber uppers are city street to boat deck activated. While additional benefits include dual-density EVA midsoles that absorb shock; scratch rubber toe bumpers that bolster durability; no-catch uppers for headache-free line maintenance; siped soles that slip less; and Agion® anti-odor technology.
CleanStream™ is a design philosophy that runs through our line of wading footwear. While not specific to a product feature, this designation does indicate that the product includes features and/or materials that are more resistant to "hitch-hiking" organisms – have less exposed stitching, fewer ridges & pockets and utilize non-absorbent materials – all making the boots easier to inspect, clean and dry faster. All of these elements assist anglers in doing their part to prevent the spread of invasive species. For more information, please visit our CleanStream™ page or these organizations: www.cleanangling.org, www.protectyourwaters.net or www.tu.org.
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.
Sandal or Flip
Not all styles available in all sizes; please see individual shoe/sandal/flip dropdown for size specifics
I wear these shoes almost everyday.
There is enough cushioning that allows them to be worn for walks or riding in the boat. My favorite thing is that these shoes have removable insoles. I wear orthotics in my shoes, with the removable insole I can put the orthotics under the insole and have some cushioning to prevent heal pain.
These shoes, my G-4 waders and my Simms Guide wading boots are hands down the best Simms items that I own.
