Product Description

From high-elevation rivulets to coring into no-man’s land with nothing but bear mace and Ramen noodle rations, Simms’ new Vapor Boot gets you into the thick of it—faster. Its lightweight, minimalist design is maximized by a VaporTread™ platform/4.0mm Vibram® Megagrip rubber outsole that effectively bridges the worlds of superior hiking speeds and traction-enhanced wading performance. Features include a synthetic leather, textile, and scratch rubber upper that, combined with an anatomical top collar, work with your feet for all-day, blister-free trailblazing. Internals are precision lined with plush neoprene where it counts, generating warmth, redefining comfort, and guaranteeing on/off ease whether it’s time to rally—or rest—your dogs.

Technologies

  • Simms Cleanstream Logo

    CleanStream™ is a design philosophy that runs through our 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. For more information, please visit our CleanStream™ page or these organizations: www.cleanangling.org, www.protectyourwaters.net or www.tu.org.

  • Simms Cleanstream Logo

    The New VAPORTREAD™ is designed for the adventurous angler looking for an innovative piece of footwear that is both trail-ready and wading-ready perfect for accessing remote, prisitine backcountry fishing holes. The molded 3D footbed with arch support and ball flex aligns the foot for all day comfort and optimizes biomechanics. A molded TPU heel clip secures the heel and adds lateral stability for all day hiking and wading. The molded dual-density EVA midsole creates additional cushioning for hiking comfort and enhanced proprioception. Trying to reduce weight for the trail a molded, minimal TPU retentioin plate was hidden between the midsole and outsole to provide light weight cleat retention and to enhance proprioception. For long lasting traction on trails, slip resistance in water and toe protection, a revolutionized molded VIBRAM® IDROGRIP® rubber outsole with $MM self-sharpening multi-directional lugs was created.

Footwear Care:

If using in saltwater always clean and rinse to prevent corrosion.

Use a brush to remove dust and dirt. Choose an old vegetable brush or toothbrush. For maximum thoroughness, remove laces prior to cleaning. Use specialized boot cleaner, saddle soap or maybe a mild dishwashing soap with luke-warm water.

Do not use bar soap or detergents.

Do not place wet boots close to a heat source (fireplace, campfire, wood stove, radiator, heater, sunny windowsill) as this can weaken adhesives and cause materials to become brittle or shrink.

Dry using natural methods (air dry) and try to keep them out of the sun for long periods of time. Boots dry faster when positioned upside-down. If desired, stuff a sheet or two of newspaper into each boot to absorb moisture. Change the paper each hour.

If you see any mold on your boots, brush in a mixture of 80% water and 20% vinegar.

Over time the use of leather conditioners may provide increased water repellency and can prevent cracking and drying of the leather.

Store footwear in a place where temperatures are stable and normal. Do not store footwear in attics, garages, car trunks or any unventilated spaces.

Never put footwear in washing machine

Took these boots to the silty Deckers and really wonder why I ever used felt boots? The traction was amazing! I fished all day, hiked in and out of the water, walked all day and didn't notice I had them on. Lightweight, comfortable, and top notch quality. Simms made these with the Colorado fisherman in mind!

Nice light boot for hiking all day in! Review by Todd Fisher

I bought these to replace my old pair of Simms Guide boots. They had gotten stiff, cramped my feet, and were too heavy to carry into the backcountry in my backpack. These were a perfect replacement since they are nice and light, comfortable (flexible), and I can wear them all day on the trail/river when I need to. I have also fished with them in cold weather, and they keep my feet perfectly warm. Go good with the neoprene sock for wet wading or with waders. Best boot yet. (Posted on 4/30/2015)

I've hiked into Cheeseman Canyon and walked up and down Bear Creek in these boots. Check them out before you pull the trigger on any other boot. (Posted on 11/13/2014)

This will typically be one size up from your normal shoe size for men and one size down for women (ie: a women's USA size 8 would take a men's boot size 7).
