Choosing wading gear is always an important choice for any fly angler and this Simms RipRap Shoe review is designed to help you. Boots, waders and wet wading
gear should all be carefully selected as your comfort on the stream is very important to wading safely. Also, good and comfortable wading shoes and gear will help you work the water more effectively. As a guide I am very particular about wading gear as I spend hundreds of days a year on the water and I just don’t have time for anything less than the best.
I have never been one to like wet wading in wading boots and have always preferred sandals or wet wading shoes. This year I made the switch to the new Simms Rip Rap Shoe and couldn’t be happier!
The RipRap shoes slip on and off with ease and are very durable. Plus the Stream Tread soles grip even the slipperiest of streams. The shoe is completely enclosed and it is virtually impossible to get rocks inside the RipRap, plus the outside of the shoe is thick and stout enough to keep your toes and ankles from bruising on streambed boulders. The shoes are also great for any fishing that requires a little hiking; I have used my RipRaps as a light weight shoe to wear hiking into Cheesman Canyon.
