A completely innovative wading boot in a class by its own, the Simms Intruder Boot is the only boot available that is truly built not for wearing waders, but for wet wading. Designed from the success of their other wading boots, the Simms Inturder Boot is as durable, as comfortable and as stable as any of the other boots on the rack. It is designed to be worn with a light neoprene sock, wet wading sock or for those who dare, completely barefoot. The boot offers an integrated neoprene sock that snugs around your ankle and calf to keep rocks and debris out. Inside, it is fully neoprene lined for comfort and cushioning. Outside, it has a nylon upper attached to a dual density EVA midsole with ESS plates underneath to keep studs and cleats from falling out.
There are two soles offered on the Intruder boot: Vibram Megagrip or Felt. The Felt version offers like a Vibram outersole with an inlay of felt in the middle to appease the felt fanatics of the world. The outersole is there to provide traction when the shoe is on edge like when approaching the stream from a high bank. The rubber version offers the unique Simms Vibram Megragrip sole which offers side traction like the felts, but the inlay is a series of Vibram Lugs similar to that of a trail running shoe with enough space between a few of them to inset Simms Star Cleats or Studs. Regardless of the sole, you can tell that the Simms Intruder Boot is made for some serious miles. If you like to wet wade and want the utmost in comfort and protection, look no further than the Simms Intruder Wading Boot.
