Re: Which New Wading Boot?
So I am a horrible writer so I will skip doing a full blown review. I got out today, and used the new Simms G4 Guide boots with the BOA laces. These are the ones shown a few posts back with the aluminum studs. Aside from the fact they are $239 and then I slapped $40 worth of aluminum studs in them they were fantastic.
Today was day one on them and I got about 3.5 to 4miles on them and they were so comfortable it was unbelievable. I struggled getting the BOA lace tight enough at first, my fault not the boots. They felt super light while hiking but yet tons of support.
In the water I didn't feel like I missed a beat with the aluminum studs, actually had fantastic traction in some fairly swift water on moderately slick rocks. When I got home I inspected the aluminum studs and notice no appreciable signs of wear on the studs.
IF you can get past pushing $300 for a studded up pair of boots, these were great.
My William & Jospeh wader bag finally ripped out so now I have to go get a new wader bag too.
