ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

Simms love. I hated them for the first year. Stiff. Hurt my ankles. Frankenstein boots.
2 1/2 years. Felt still hanging in there. All seams intact. 120ish days, god knows how many miles.
World record boots for me.

They'll probably disintegrate next trip. -0-

I bought a pair of Simms Freestone rubber soles a while back, and they are ass busting machines. Might as well tie some oiled bacon around your feet.

Simms warranty is a load of hot jizz shot into your nostrils anymore.  Fuck that company.

How long did you get out of those freestones Woolly? I wasn't too impressed with the life of mine before they needed to be replaced.  I was impressed with how much longer I made them work though.

I can't really remember but offhand I say at least three years.

In spite of my mostly positive comments about my Simms waders last year, I still think Chota STL felt boots are the most comfortable and longest lasting boots I have ever had.  Might take a look.

My $.02.

The freestones are garbage. I've had good luck with the Simms models above those. Had a pair of G3 guides I wore the rubber soles slick. Still have em.

Driver and I had this streamside conversation. Your miles may vary.
I'm notoriously rough on boots. Starting year 3 on my felt Freestones. Which is a world record for me. They probably wouldn't last the year, but I begrudgingly give them their due. And I won't pester Simms about the warranty like the chief skinflint here.  :Dance
