Just got a pair of Simms Wet Wading boot with the felt sole. I've worn them several times now and really like them. The sole which has a center of felt and rubber vibram sides works great. The rubber grips well on wet muddy banks and the felt sticks well to slippery banks. A big feature is the slim profile of the boot. It's more like a hiking boot rather than a wading boot which gives better support on those long hikes. Now I don't need to pick between my felt soled boots or my rubber soled boots. I now have one with both felt and rubber. I would definitely recommend these. - John Schilling
Simms’ new Intruder® Felt blazes trail and wet-wades through four seasons with stamina and finesse. Integrated neoprene socks block debris. Dual-density EVA midsoles mitigate shock, while ESS plates keep cleats in check and enhance balance and control. Advanced features include nonslip Vibram® Megagrip rubber outsoles with integrated felt pads for superior grip. Abrasion-fighting welded TPU pads are seated in strategic zones, and a full neoprene lining combines wading comfort with convenient on/off capabilities.

Here’s the problem: Steel studs, cleats or screw heads are too hard—they skate down rock surfaces like fingernails on a blackboard. Felt wears out quickly, slides on mud and algae, and can carry invasive species. Here’s the solution: our Foot Tractor Wading Boots with next-generation aluminum bar technology. The more aggressively shaped aluminum bars are just hard enough to cut through algae and slime, yet soft enough to conform to rock surfaces. They also grip well on muddy trails, won’t accumulate snow and don’t hold moisture. In other words, they offer the wading traction we’ve been looking for all our lives. Made with fast-drying synthetic leather and Venergy monofilament mesh panels, Foot Tractors offer industrial-strength support and protection in a light, comfortable boot.
Our Rio Azul Waders are built for anglers who want to simplify their gear without sacrificing performance, comfort or durability. Built from supple H2No® Performance Standard 4-layer, 6.1-oz polyester fabric with a waterproof/breathable barrier and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, they feature the same single-seam construction for increased durability found throughout our wader lineup. Adding to the versatility of these lighter-weight waders, the fully adjustable suspenders have male and female buckles that allow quick conversion to a belt so that the Rio Azuls can be neatly worn as pants. The flat-panel gravel guards drain water quickly if you fish in and out of boats, in addition to better resisting abrasion and wear while hiking or wading. Beneath the gravel guards, the booties have a more anatomical, sock-like fit and are made from a denser 4mm neoprene that resists compaction better over the long haul. A stretch wading belt with low-profile buckle protects you from the inevitable “That-tailout-was-deeper-than-I-thought” swimming sessions. Front utility keeper for convenient tool attachment. A raised Fitz Roy Trout logo tops it off. Field repair kit included.
