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.

  • An update to Simms’ signature Guide Boot for a lighter, yet more durable balance of wet trail & all-day wading
  • Simms NEW RiverTread™ platform for guide-ready wading performance, support & traction
  • TPU molded heel clip for positive heel fit & hiking security
  • Partially-lined with neoprene for wading warmth, cushioning & easy-on/easy-off
  • MATERIAL TECH: Waterproof nubuck leather & TPU-coated textile upper, RiverTread™ platform/4.0mm Vibram® Idrogrip rubber outsole
  • Weight (SIZE 10): 59.2 oz
  • Width: EEE width
  • Color - Dark Elkhorn

The New RIVERTREAD™ platform is designed for the demanding angler looking for the best wading footwear on the market. RIVERTREAD™ features Simms latest engineered components to maximize comfort, performance, and slip-resistance. The molded 3D footbed with arch support and ball flex aligns the foot for all day comfort and optimizes biomechanics. Molded dual-density EVA midsole creates extra cushioning for hiking comfort and enhances proprioception. A Molded and minimal TPU rentention plate allows lightweight cleat retention and enhances proprioception. A molded Vibram® Idrogrip® outsole with 4mm self-sharpening multi-directional lugs permits long lasting traction on trails, slip resistance in water and toe protection.

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. For more information, please visit our CleanStream™ page or these organizations:, or

Vibram® soles are built from the bottom up and are designed to overcome very specific obstacles on a variety of terrains. Vibram® invests heavily in research and development of products never overlooking even the most minute detail. Vibram® soles boast innovative compounds and technical sole patterns, specifically developed to meet the challenges of many different environments and applications.

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!
