Abrasion- and water-resistant synthetic leather and nylon upper
Heel pull loop for ease of entry
Vibram® sticky rubber sole with self-cleaning properties
Performs well, good ankle support. I recommend buying a boot one-size larger than what you normally wear. I wear a LK wader and I bought size 12 boot, but my foot felt squeezed after some time in the water. I should have bought a size 13.

Great Brand-Super Slick Boots
I bought these boots back in March and they look like they are about 3-4 years old. Most of the black vinyl has worn off and the substrate is showing. However; I have used them about 50 times in about 7-months.
I chose the rubber bottoms to help comply with any invasive specie issues. However; that was a bad idea. I fish mostly tailwaters in East TN and these soles are super slick. I have fell more times with these boots this year than I have with felt-soles the past 10-years combined.
Also; the sole is not very flexible. So; you feel like you are trudging along when walking.
Simms is a great brand; but, this boot needs some redesign.

Time will tell...
I got these because Maryland has gone to the no-felt soled shoes for wading and I've been very happy with my old Simms.
Same fit and finish as my old Simms.
My concern is the stitching on the welt.
A fair number of the actual stitches are not recessed into the sole of the shoe, so as you walk, you're walking straight on the stitching.
I speculate that these are not a true Norwegian welt and likely glue is the true bonding agent, but time will tell.
Other than that, the rand is nice, the Vibram rubber is nice and sticky. For $100, you won't go too wrong!

I returned a pair of Red Head felt sole boots that fell apart after one month for a pair of these. What a difference. I've had them for about one year now and have worn them well over 100 times. Even witrh the abuse I've given them on the rocks, they are holding up fine. They have good support and grip well, especially now that I've studded them with some sheet metal screws. I just wish they came in half sizes. I wear a 9 1/2 EE and bought a size 10. They fit fine with socks, but I had to remove the insole to wear them with waders and they are still tight. My fault for taking advice from the sales person. When/If I wear this par out, I'll try size 11's.
