Simms® Freestone® Wading Boots for Men
Comfort for the long haul
Thsi is my first pair of wading boots since I switched to stocking foot waders. Paired with Simms waders, these boots are comfortably worn for hours on the beach. Very well made, and up to Simms quality. Easy to put on and off. Absolutely warm and dry for the duration of what is usally several hours chasing Bass & Blues on the beaches of Long Island. Only issue I have with wading boots which I don't think is unique to these is the sand build up in the boot. Albeit it could be hours before you notice. Just have to remove them and flush them out. Since they are typically worn for stream or river fishing, it's most likely due to the way I use them on the sandy beaches. Otherwise, excellent product, at a good price, and would recommend to all.

Solid comfortable boot
I have tried a few different pairs, and these seem to be the best for the money. Actual size/ fit, comfortable, and durable.

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.

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.
