Simms Rivershed boots review

Simms Rivershed Boots

For the 2012/2013 fishing season I relocated to our holiday batch in Karamea to use as a base to fish and document every waterway in Kahurangi National Park. This has meant some serious kilometres on the feet, just the task for a pair of Simms boots. The new addition to my Simms boot collection is a pair of Simms Riversheds. Like all Simms boots they are solidly constructed but this model has an extended toe cap providing additional protection and durability. After some serious use and abuse in rugged New Zealand terrain they have proven themselves to not only be exceptionally hardwearing boots, but also very comfortable boots to wear. The extended toe cap does a great job of keeping the stitching out of harmís way plus with the materials used to construct the boots being so durable it means a good clean up brings the boots up like new.

I don't really have a bad thing to say about any of the other Simms boots I own/owned (Simms Freestone Boots review here) however I would have to say that the Rivershed's break-in period from new was the quickest out of all of them and they are by far the most comfortable boots; this is especially noticeable after a long day of walking 12+ hours. Without a doubt the Simms Rivershed Boots are now my favourite fishing hoofs!
