Fly fishing is not a sit-down sport. You are on your feet all day, and the more you hike, wade, and hop over obstacles, the more likely you are to find undisturbed fish. Active fly fishers need footwear for these endeavors, and the G4 Pro Boot delivers with a 3D-molded rubber toe cap and heel cup, and a non-absorbing neoprene lining that makes the whole interior more comfortable.
The footbed has a dual-density EVA midsole and a Vibram IdroGrip rubber outsole with 10 noncorrosive stainless-steel cleat receptacles. Anyone who has suffered the task of drilling screws into hard rubber will appreciate these threaded receptacles that make it easy to add and remove cleats. The boot is also available in a felt version without the receptacles. $300 | simmsfishing.com
