The worst part of my day of fishing is taking my boots off, Simms has just made that a whole lot more enjoyable. The Simms Rivertek Boa is the easiest boot I had ever put on or taken off. The neoprene lining inside the boot slides right onto your foot. The Boa lace system is quickest and most efficient system I have ever used. I must say that I was skeptical at first, but now I am a true believer. No more laces to tie or wear out.
The Streamtread Vibram is the best river sole out there. I can tell you that with confidence from using and testing other brands rubber soles. You will slip less and grip more with the Simms Vibram. I personally do stud mine, but even without the studs they are extremely grippy. The Riverteks are much more supportive ave than I had thought. The synthetic materials is extremely stiff, durable and light. My ankle was perfectly at home inside of these. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a new pair of boots, they certainly have my stamp of approval.
