The SIMMS G4 BOA is a boot that many Missouri River anglers will be wearing for several years. Why? Ease of use.
The RiverTek BOA, the predecessor, is a boot that many of the Headhunters staff has been wearing the past 2 seasons. Why? Ease of use. The comfort level of these boots is terrific. Getting in and out of them is super easy. The neoprene liner along with the neoprene sock on your waders allows your foot to slip in without agitation.
We call them boat slippers. The disadvantage of the BOA RiverTek is that while a great lounging wading boot, but not a boot designed for bushwhacking on multi-mile death trout marching.
The G4 BOA is the answer. These boots are make for walking. Honest.
Comfort combined with support. A great boot for any fly fishing pursuit you may encounter. Remember that putting these babies on is akin to slipping on your favoirte house shoes…They got the Sci-Fi look going for them too!
