Simms Rivershed Wading Boots feature an athletic design for anglers who want lighter boots to hike into the backcountry. These boots are made using CleanStream technology along with Simms' new StreamTread traction sole. The Rivershed StreamTread sole 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 Rivershed 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.
