Redesigned from the soles up, the 2015 Simms Freestone Boot has many of the great features of the previous version, however this new, more durable version of Simms' most popular wading boot is built for toughness, and the most extreme of wading conditions.
Starting at the bottom, the Simms Freestone Boots feature the trusted Simms StreamTread Vibram sole, giving the user the ability to walk and wade over unforgiving slime covered boulders with ease. Combo that with the option to add Simms Star Cleats and HardBite Boot Studs for added traction. In addition to the StreamTread Vibram sole, the Simms Freestone Boot - Felt are also available with a 12mm Felt Sole.
Moving up, the Freestone Wading Boots are built with a synthetic full-grain leather and scratch rubber upper. Because of the synthetic leather construction, the Simms Freestone Boots will not shrink, meaning no more soaking your wading boots in order to squeeze them on.
In addition to the outer construction, the Simms Freestone Boots also feature neoprene lined collars for enhanced warmth and comfort during those long days on the river. Combo all of these features with a great price tag that has remained the same through out the re-design process, and you have yourself a great pair of wading boots.
Weighing in at approximately 65.6 oz per pair in Vibram sole version, the Simms Rivertek Boa Boot comes in US sizes 5-16. Felt versions weigh in at around 65.6 oz per pair and are also available in US whole sizes 5-16.
