The Simms Freestone Wading Boots offer outstanding quality and comfort at a fantastic price. This updated version of a Simms favorite, is extremely stable in the water thanks to the StreamTread Vibram Idrogrip 360 traction lug sole which accepts HardBite Star Cleats, Alumibite Star Cleats and Hardbite Studs.
Stopping the spread of invasive species is something that the designers at Simms take very seriously. The Freestone Boot is part of Simms' CleanStream design philosophy, produced with features and materials that are more resistant to aquatic hitch-hiking organisms. These features include less exposed stitches, fewer ridges and pocket areas for invasives to be trapped, the use of non-absorbent materials and a final product that is easier to clean and drys faster.
Standard features of the Simms Freestone Wading Boots include:
We offer the Simms Freestone Wading Boots in men's sizes 5 through 16. These boots are Brown in color.
I wear a size 14 - 15 shoe, so with the added material of socks and wader footies I felt I would need a size 16 in a wading boot. Initially I thought I would have to pay a ton of money for customization or compromise by purchasing a lesser quality boot.
The Simms Freestone Wading boot was neither. High quality at a reasonable cost. I have used them about 15 times already and love them. Great ankle support gives me wading confidence. They are very comfortable as well. I couldn't be more pleased. I wade an area with very slick rock slabs and the soles provide a good grip even without adding cleats or studs.
I need new waders - hope I can find a pair that has room for my foot size!
