Simms VaporTread Boot
The Simms VaporTread Boot is a fishing boot that brings wading/hiking boots together in one athletic style shoe. Whether hiking into backwoods fishing locales or through whatever conditions are placed in front of you, the VaporTread boots will perform flawlessly. From high-elevation rivulets to coring into no-man’s land with nothing but bear mace and Ramen noodle rations, Simms’ new VaporTread Boot gets you into the thick of it—faster. The thing that stands out in this high-top boot is just how lightweight and comfortable they are. These aren't just a coldweather or wading boot, they are very capable for long range hikes or rocky terrain. The VaporTread Boot displays a lightweight, minimalist design that 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.

VaporTread Boot Technology
CleanStream™ is a design philosophy that runs through 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.
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.
Vibram® soles are built from the bottom up and are designed to overcome very specific obstacles on a variety of terrains. Vibram® invests heavily in research and development of products never overlooking even the most minute detail. Vibram® soles boast innovative compounds and technical sole patterns, specifically developed to meet the challenges of many different environments and applications.
