Reviews: Simms River Sandal

Chris Scoones over on Washington Fly Fishing reviews the Simms River Sandal, noting they are no protection against sharp grass or sunburn, but do a better job than most footwear in providing traction. “As for it’s performance on the river, traction was solid and not just due to newer felt. The felt is only in the middle while rubber on the outside grips well too, especially when jumping boulders. I’ve found other rubber soles with standard traction lugs to suck pretty bad but it wasn’t the case with these. It’s small slits are similar to siping a tire for usage in snow and ice, an application of optimal traction, not durability or mud traction.”
