Simms’ G3 Guide™ Boot has blazed more miles than any other wading boot in existence—and it’s just warming up. Advancements to this year’s incarnation include the guide-approved performance of a RiverTread™ platform featuring proprioception, which minimizes rigid underfoot materials for enhanced feel whether on the trail or in the water. Vibram® Idrogrip outsoles add to this great-grip equation thanks to multi-directional lugs—compatible with all Simms’ AlumiBite™ and HardBite™ cleats and studs. Additional features include a TPU molded heel clip for a positive, locked-in fit, as well as neoprene internals that deliver cushioning where it counts for superior wading warmth, comfort, and easy on/off activation.

I’ve been a huge fan of the Simms guide boot for years, so much so; I cannot image guiding my customers without them. I spend more time in my Simms Guide boots than I do in my street shoes! Comfort and durability are first and foremost when it comes to selecting a pair of wading boots. I walk hundreds of miles in my Simms Guide Boot each season…they are without a doubt, the most dependable wading shoe on the market.
I am really excited about the new Simms G3 Guide Boot! The new Rivertread™ Platform grips better than ever and they are available in both Vibram Idiogrip and felt. Additionally, I stud up a separate pair of Simms G3 Guide Boots that I use on larger freestone streams (Colorado, Gunnison, Arkansas, etc.) where the substrate can be slippery and tougher to negotiate. This combination enables me to be prepared for any type of situation from smooth flowing tailwaters to large, untamed freestones. If you’re serious about your footwear; you owe it to yourself to try out the new Simms G3 Guide Boot!
