Simms Headwaters Boot
Simms' Headwaters Boots are going to be a popular boot in the Simms lineup in our opinion. They feature the latest in Simms innovation and technology which translates into comfort, durability and performance for you. The great looking Headwater Boots have a high rubber and high denier nylon upper that resists damage from rocks that could lead to durability issues. The sole is constructed of multiple materials that allow the boot to bend comfortably while you walk and also aid in keeping cleats from coming out. The inside of the boot is partially lined with neoprene which really makes a big difference both in comfort and how easily the boot goes on and off. All of these features come in a boot that is reasonably priced.
Here is what Simms has to say about their Headwater Boots:
Rugged boot built to boldly excel on the approach and in the drink.
Simms’ Headwaters® Boots have a lightweight, durable platform that maximizes underfoot stability, control, and slip-resistance. The scratch rubber and high-denier nylon upper ensure long life, and a partial neoprene lining adds cushioning and easy on/off performance. Additional features include a dual-density EVA midsole for absorbing shock, ESS plates for improved cleat/stud retention, and proven Vibram® Idrogrip rubber outsoles for powerful grip.
- Scratch rubber & high denier nylon upper
- Partial neoprene lining for cushioning & easy on/off
- Duel-density EVA midsole for shock absorption
- Headwaters™ platform for maximum underfoot stability, control & slip-resistance
- ESS plates for improved cleat/stud retention & proprioception
- Vibram® Idrogrip rubber outsole improves grip on slippery terrain
CleanStream™ is a design philosophy that runs through our line of wading footwear. While not specific to a product feature, this designation does indicate that the product includes features and/or materials that are more resistant to "hitch-hiking" organisms – have less exposed stitching, fewer ridges & pockets and utilize non-absorbent materials – all making the boots easier to inspect, clean and dry faster. All of these elements assist anglers in doing their part to prevent the spread of invasive species.
Men's Wading Boot Size Chart
To allow proper room for the neoprene stockingfoot, find your regular shoe size in the right-hand columns and order the corresponding Simms Boot in the left column. This will typically be one size up from your normal shoe size for men and one size down for women (ie: a women's USA size 8 would take a men's boot size 7).
(Simms Boot size 5 will fit a Youth Size 4, etc.)
