Simms’ new Headwaters® Pro Boot brings trusted traction and durable performance to the pursuit. Waterproof nubuck leather with a scratch rubber upper combine to limit line-snares while winning the war against wear and tear. Dual-density EVA midsoles minimize shock. The angler-appreciated Headwaters® platform maximizes underfoot stability. Finally, Vibram® Idrogrip outsoles have ESS plates for improved cleat retention. They also help bolster grip on the slipperiest trails and streams thanks to proprioception engineering that puts more rubber in contact with the river bottom.

CleanStream™ is a design philosophy that runs through the Simms 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.
Vibram IdroGrip provides maximum traction on wet and very slippery terrain - exactly what is needed for wading. It is the ideal safety component for all shoes used in both wet and dry environments.
In field testing IdroGrip was noticeably stickier than the competition on wet and dry rock and matted grass .
- Ideal on wet surfaces
- Improved grip on slippery terrain
- Inspired by free climbing rubber
