I have bad feet, and when you spend as much time wading as I do, good wading boots are worth their weight in gold.
I’ve just spent the past season wearing Simms G3 wading boots, and I’m going to keep my statement about them pretty simple - their comfort and performance is far above any other boot I’ve ever worn.
I also added some Simms Hardbite Studs, and Simms Alumibite Star Cleats, and grip whilst wading is amazing.
Some feedback from regular customer Peter Quigley sums up the G3 boot beautifully:
I just picked up a pair of the new Simms G-3 guide boots from Darren at Untamed Flies and Tackle and fished in them for three consecutive days in difficult rocky conditions. To say I’m impressed would be an understatement. There are not many wading boots I haven’t tried and I’ve found it impossible to get any boot over the past 20 years to allow me fish in comfort. These new boots from Simms are a game changer. Super comfortable, they feel light and agile. The eyes for the laces seem to extend closer to the toe allowing for a tighter fit and it also seems that there is a little more space in the toe box of the shoe. The grip is exceptional as always and the build looks solid and capable of many years fishing. If you are looking for a new pair of boots it will be very hard to beat the new Simms G-3 Guide boots.
Last thing I will mention is that the boots are definitely dual purpose, as they excel at both wading and hiking. This = comfort.
