Simms Headwaters Wading Boot-Vibram

DESCRIPTION

Pristine water and solitude go hand in hand. We all know that a little effort goes a long way to getting off the beaten track. We designed our men's Headwaters® Boot for serious wading that lies beyond easily accessible roadside attractions. A Vibram® Idrogrip outsole lets you move with confidence across rocks and rough terrain in and out of the water, while a cushioned midsole and partial neoprene lining support your feet for full-day adventures. The burly upper stabilizes your feet and ankles through uneven, rocky terrain and the sole is reinforced for reliable cleat retention.

FEATURES

  • Scratch rubber & high denier nylon upper
  • Partial neoprene lining for cushioning & easy on/off
  • Dual‐density EVA midsole for shock absorption
  • ESS plates for improved cleat/stud retention & proprioception
APPROX. WEIGHT: 56.1 oz. 

TECHNOLOGIES

  • 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.

  • Vibram® invests heavily in research and development of products never overlooking even the most minute detail. Inspired by free climbing rubber, Vibram Idrogrip is ideal on wet surfaces and improves grip on slippery terrain. Vibram Megagrip offers the ideal combination of grip and durability for maximum surface adaptability.

FOOTWEAR CARE:

For proper cleaning of your footwear to descrease the likelihood of spreading Aquatic Invasive Species, please reference our CleanStream™ page.

 

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.
