Simms® Boot Technology


Simms® is committed to developing the best selection of fishing footwear while maintaining durability, performance and comfort.  In addition to incorporating our exclusive CleanStream™ designs to better protect our waterways from the spread of Aquatic Nuisance Species, we have partnered with Vibram - the leader in sole technology - to offer maximum traction in diverse and rugged terrain.  The exclusive StreamTread™ sole on our wading boot footwear uses the Vibram® patented 360° lug that provides traction in all directions and is easy to clean.  All StreamTread™ soles can accept Simms® HardBite™ Boot Studs or our Star Cleat stud system to offer superior traction. 


 


CleanStream

ECHO-CONSCIOUS DESIGN FOR RESPONSIBLE ANGLERS

CleanStream™ is a design philosophy that runs through our line of footwear.  It doesn't refer to any specific product or feature.  Rather, it describes a combination of features we employ to assist anglers in doing their part to prevent the spread of invasive species. 

Products with our CleanStream™ design feature materials that are more resistant to "hitchhiking" organisms.  In addition, products with CleanStream™ have less exposed stitching and fewer ridges and pockets that could potentially hide stowaways. 

INSPECT, CLEAN & DRY

CleanStream™ designs help make it easier for anglers to prevent the spread of invasive species.  To that end, we highly encourage anglers to take the following precautions after a day on the water:

Before leaving, inspect all equipment and remove any mud or vegetation

Clean your equipment with water

Dry all equipment before transporting it to another location

Make sure not to transfer any plants, fish or other animals from one body of water to another.

Remember, every fishery is a unique environment - even if they are a few miles apart.  Join us in educating others about ANS and protecting our resources from invasive species.
