The Pros and Cons Of Simms Felt Soles

Simms felt soles have been in the fly fishing industry for a long time and it seems they may eventually be banned by many states. While felt grabs rocky bottomed rivers, it does a serviceable job of gripping dry rocks on the bank also. Slipping when wading is always on the minds of anglers and this why felt soled boots are generally considered to be a good choice for wading freestone streams with rocks and gravel. But on the down side, it has been studied that felt may unintentionally transfer invasive species from one watershed to another by hitching a ride within the felt. And, felt offers no real advantage on salt water flats, muddy or soft bottomed streams or lakes and it also is slippery on grass or steep slopes. For winter anglers, felt is often a poor choice as snow will stick to wet felt like glue and fly fishermen soon find themselves walking on clumps of packed snow stuck to their boot soles.

About Simms Boa Laces

Gary Hammerslag's initial inspiration for the company was the creation of laces for footwear that would stay tied and not come undone during physical activity. In 2001 the first boot-systems featuring the Boa laces were produced by Vans and K2's snowboard divisions. In 2002 DC implemented the laces into its boot-systems for snowboard boots as well. By 2004 the company moved into the cycling industry, and next into the golf industry in 2005. The lace closure systems were also integrated into other products, including trail running shoes and more general outdoor footwear. This included winter boots, hiking boots, hunting boots, and work boots. Boa has also been used by endorsed athletes in both the Olympic Games and the X-Games. In 2011 Simms Boa Technology changed the name of its patented closure system from the "Simms Boa Lacing System" to the "Simms Boa Closure System", in reaction to the use of Boa Technology on non-footwear items such as helmets, motorcycle gloves, hydration packs, medical braces, and other apparel. By 2012 Boa Technology was used in one third of all the snowboard boots produced globally, and more than 70 riders in the Tour de France used the Boa Closure System.

I really like the Boa lace system. First there is the extra convenience of ease of loosening and tightening them. But even better is losing the wet soggy laces. This is a major advancement in wading boot technology. The boots are also excellent. They are easy to get into and out of, even when dry. This boot offers plenty of ankle support and foot protection on the stream. Platte River Fly Shop's service was also second to none.
