The Men's Simms Tributary Wader Boots are designed for support and traction in the water. These wading boots have stud-compatible rubber outsole that allows you to customize your grip patterns for any terrain. Complete with a textile and synthetic lace-up upper for a comfortable feel, you'll love the Men's Simms Tributary Wader Boots from SCHEELS.
as others have mentioned these boots are not durable at all. After 10-12 outing ove the course of a year the stitching is coming undone, lacing system is breaking, and material is ripping. Really disappointed simms would put their name on such a substandard product.
Great boots for the money. my only complaint is that when you are wearing them for an extended period of time they rub a little bit on your ankle. i have a size 12 foot and order a size 12. which is great for during the summer and fall but during the winter i recommend getting a size bigger so that way you can wear thicker socks
These were the worse boots for traction in a river I've ever worn. It was like I was not wearing anything designed for fly fishing at all. I can't tell you how many times I almost fell in a river that typically offers zero challenge. They were remarkably unsafe for me, and I've used Simms Headwaters rubber boots in the past as well as Orvis felt soles. These were immediately returned.
Great wading shoes highly recommend if you hike a lot and want light feel shoes
Really good shoes! Took them out in Oregon and Northern California! Very good grip and well made shoes! Got size 12 ,my normal shoe size 10.5! Fit great feel good as well ,great for hiking for sure,they light and feel like big hiking shoes!
A Heck of a lot better than felt boots. I use patagonia waders and noticed that the boots have a D ring for the waders gravel guerds but is a stretch for the patagonia waders. Obviously the ring works great for Simms waders. I just put a stainless steel ring that was a little bit bigger than the d ring and my patagonia gravel guards attach much better with out stretching them out to much.
My biggest issue is the durability of the pair I received. For a cheaper wading boot, it is to be expected that they aren't super durable or super lightweight but I didn't think the sole would split away from the boot after 2 trips to the San Juan. They still work, are plenty comfortable, and do the job when I remember not to trip on the floppy sole. Sure, they're bulky but that is expected for the price. I wouldn't buy these if you're going to do a lot of hiking. It seems like banging them around on rocks kill them pretty quickly.
Bought some Flyweights as replacement and am very happy - I wish I would have bought them in the first place and saved some $$$.
I like the large wide toe area. This helps keeping my toes warm in very cold water. And that they dry out fairly rapidly even though neoprene inside. I have only used them a couple of times; so, I can't say anything about durability at this point. Hoping for the best there.
ok for the price but don't expect them to last long
Boots are ok, but I found durability a problem.... the webbing lace system wore through after one season, and the toe of the rubber sole also wore out in one season. Also not compatible with the star cleats. I don't dislike them, but I will have to buy something more durable this season.
These boots are a little stiff the first couple of outings. They will get more flexible with time in the water, I have been in the water for the last 6 weeks with these and I have not experienced any issues with the eyelets or seams as the other anglers have talked about in the previous reviews. The best bang for your buck!
boots are stiff, but become softer and more comfortable after a few days in the water. considering the weight bulkiness of these boots I thought they would be more durable then they were. after 12 dsys of fishing, the stitching around the laces started to come apart, and also the stitch on the instep of both boots. the material held up fine, just not the stitching
Can't beat it for 100 bucks. Positives...durable, except eyelets/ traction (better than the Vibram)/ sizing. Negatives.. Front half of boot doesn't flex like your foot/ Got slightly better after 8 days of wearing/ nylon eyelets do not last as long as an old fashion hole. Would easily be a 5 star boot and the best deal in the industry if these two simple fixes were made...
