    Reviewer: SPM (Smallwood, NY)

    Fished this boot a dozen times. Thus far uppers are great. At first I thought the sizing that Simms recommends was too big based on how older models fit. However, doubled up on socks, and actually have decided that they have the sizing about correct. The uppers are much stiffer than, say, Guide boots, and thus help keep heel in place. I think Simms is going in the exact, correct direction with the uppers, esp. in light of invasives. They have really streamlined the materials; the whole affair is very space-age and progressively designed. However, when it comes to the bottoms I am NOT into the alumibite cleats AT ALL. They actually work very well as cleats, and I actually prefer to felt at this point. However, the way Vibram has designed the cleat attachment points the cleats keep falling out in the worst places- where there is more pressure. This is painful both for wading and the pocket book as these slugs of aluminum are way overpriced. I'm going to start trying out kold kutter bolts- but this is a hack that Simms should be incorporating, not charging 30 bucks for a puck of cleats that fall off because the bolting is ill-designed on Simms/Vibrams part. Overall think this design is a step in right direction, but needs work on the cleating. They need to figure out a way to build in a better cleating system that doesn't simply fall out (and yes, I'm attaching them correctly).
