Wading in the new G3 Guide Boots is like wading in a combination of your favorite bedroom slippers and your most trusted work boots. This level of comfort and protection was crafted with hard-working guides in mind, but even if you only wade once a month, you’ll still appreciate the G3’s attributes. Beefed-up ankle support pairs with Simms’ unique Rivertread technology, which is aimed at giving you enhanced feel under the boot, making it easier to navigate tricky spots. A dual-density midsole also improves shock absorption, which will help keep your dogs from barking after a long day on the water. —J.C.
