Simms RiverTek Boa Boot - Streamtread
Winner of Fly Fisherman Magazine’s 2012 Best Boot category, Simms’ RiverTek® is redefining what anglers have come to expect from a high-performance wading boot. Its revolutionary Boa® system lets you lace up ultrafast—with the one-handed twist of a dial—while its unobtrusive, clean design gives you a step up in the fight against Aquatic Invasive Species. And as for the ice-encrusted laces of steelhead seasons past? Winter on the OP’s Hoh, Bogachiel, and Sol Duc systems never looked so good.

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.
ECO-CONSCIOUS DESIGN FOR RESPONSIBLE ANGLERS. Invasive species such as mud snails and didymo have become a growing threat to the health of trout populations and aquatic ecosystems throughout the world. And, unfortunately, anglers have played a part in the spread, unintentionally transporting them among different watersheds on their wading boots and other fishing gear. The problem is now well-known in the fishing community and at Simms, they’ve taken the matter to heart.
That’s why they’ve introduced their new CleanStream™ design. CleanStream™ is a design philosophy that runs through their line of wading boots. It doesn’t refer to any specific product or feature. Rather, it describes a combination of features they employ to assist anglers in doing their part to prevent the spread of invasive species. Products with the CleanStream™ design feature materials that are more resistant to “hitchhiking” organisms and have less exposed stitching, fewer ridges and pockets that could potentially hide stowaways. In addition to making fishing gear easier to clean, Simms encourages all anglers to inspect and clean their gear after every outing to help prevent the spread of ANS.
The Boa® lacing system provides custom-comfort with smooth, even closure and no pressure points. easy, one-handed adjustment with a secure hold that is built to last. Featuring a wire lace made of 49 strands of aircraft-grade stainless wire cable and bombproof nylon
reel guides that are designed to take all of the abuse that you can throw at them. the Boa® system has been under development since 1997 and has tens of thousands of hours of testing on it in all types of terrain. the the Boa® lacing system is designed to be easily userrepairable and replaceable.

The streamtread sole featuring Vibram® technology is exclusive to Simms. Co-developed with Vibram® – the leader in sole technology, streamtread™ provides two distinct advantages compared to other soles. one is a patented 360-degree lug pattern that cuts through moss and mud. the second is a proprietary mix of rubber compounds that offer super grippy traction, are extremely easy to clean and ensure that the boots don't collect a lot of debris.
