Rated 5 out of 5 by Shakes2582 Great Boot
Love them. I put a minimum of 40 days on them from May to October for 2 years straight and they have impressed me every time. comfortable, excellent ankle support, I have a weak ankle and it is never an issue on the cobble and boulders on the side of the river because of the amazing support of these boots. Not very light, but not excessivley heavy. The sole on the toe of both boots started to peel from the boot bottom slightly last season but i fixed this by adding some SIMMS studs. I was not sure if the studs were needed as the soles grip much better than i anticipated, but I will be studding every set of rubber sole wading boots that I buy from now on. It turned these boots from grippy to suction cups.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mazz144 Good boots Get size bigger
First time with these style waders. Boots worked good but you must get size bigger.they run a little small. I i have a size 13 they fit if i was barefooted inside rhe waders. put heavy socks on ...... an it doesnt make for warm feet. Shoe themselves: Good traction and water displacement. comfortable boots for standing long periods of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rberke Simms - great fit, great design
I am really impressed with how Simms' idea / design of the foot area is so comfortable. There's plenty of room without being too big, and it's a carefully sculpted shape. The foam cushioning is comfortable, but denser than the very soft stuff my prior boots were made with. I think the Simms material is called 'closed cell'. The boot passes water through appropriate drainage holes, but the material doesn't sponge it up.
The overall boot shape and support helps me feel secure. I can still feel my ankles flex; it's not a rigid ski boot at all. The vibram sole was stiff enough to protect my foot as I stepped on rocks, but flexibile enough to climb up the steep banks of the river. At the end of the outing, taking off the boots was easy, too.
I highly recommend these boots !

I bought these boots for a trip to the missouri river in montana. I got them the day before i left on the trip and they fit great right out of the box. I'm normally a size 10.5 so the size 11 is the way to go. Make sure to buy the screw in cleats for them. You will not fall if you got them on.

I normally wear a 10.5 shoe. I own Simms Headwaters waders which have a pretty thick sock. Should I go to 12? I am having a hard time getting in to try them on, which I know would be the best solution. Thanks
Nope. Other boots really need you to up-size, but Simms are very comfortable with a match to your shoe size. They know you're going to use a wading sock, and prepared the fit accordingly. I wear a size 11 shoe, and the size 11 Simms boots are very comfortable.
If you do a fair amount of cold weather fishing and need to wear thick socks, then I would buy them a half size up. Otherwise, I think you'll love them. I used these for the first time this past week on a 3 day trip and was very pleased with them.
