Simms and Vibram have worked together to produce the VibramÂ® StreamTreadâ„¢ sole. An ultra-grippy, super-sticky rubber sole that works as good or better than felt in virtually any wet or aquatic condition. This sole is the most aggressive sticky rubber sole available and will give you great traction not only in the water but out of as well. Mud, wet grass, snow and other conditions that can be challenging with other sole options are easily handled with the StreamTreadâ„¢ sole. These new soles have been field tested extensively and will perform far better than any rubber soled fishing footwear currently on the market.
Simms HEADWATERSâ„¢ BOOT - VibramÂ® StreamTreadâ„¢ sole
The Vibram soled boots will be a big step forward in anglers' fight against aquatic nuisance species - organisms like didymo, whirling disease and New Zealand mud snails that are transferred to other waterways via felt and matter caught on the boots. Already, New Zealand has banned felt-soled boots and some states are asking anglers to avoid using felt soled shoes. Additionally, Simms boots and waders are designed with the â€œCleanStreamâ„¢ technology,â€. This philosophy and design uses materials and production techniques to make it more difficult for microorganisms to attach and makes Simms wading gear easier to properly clean.
