Flats Sneaker

Designed for stalking bonefish and tarpon in saltwater flats, the Simms Flats Sneaker is designed to give you traction and comfort throughout long days on your feet. The gum rubber outsole provides excellent grip in the water and on wet boat decks, while a removable Right Angle footbed supports and cushions your foot to reduce fatigue. The synthetic upper sheds water quickly when you find the shore, and a non-absorbent foam lining cushions your foot underneath, preventing pressure points. The Flats is made entirely from saltwater-friendly materials, but will serve you well when you travel to freshwater spots as well.


  • Sneaker-style wade boots for fishing on or off the boat
  • Gum rubber outsole for excellent traction in wet conditions
  • Right Angle footbed provides removable support
  • Foam lining provides comfort and won't absorb water
  • Synthetic face resists abrasions and sheds water
  • Saltwater-friendly materials are extremely durable

Flats wading shoe

Sims has awesome shoes for saltwater wading on the texas flats for redfish and trout with or without waders. They are very comfortable and the high quality.

Not like they use to be.

My first pair of Simms flats sneakers I bought in 2002. I loved them. They lasted me over twenty years and the only reason I bought these new ones were the foam around the ankles wore out. The soles were still great. If not for the ankles I’d still be using them. So… got these and I do like but. After about the first year the soles started to peal on the back and sides. I’ve been crazy glueing them back as they peal. Very sturdy boot itself and nice and light but soles coming off is very disappointing. Anyway just checking in to let you know that could be addressed. Been a Simms guy all my life and this is probably my only complaint.

Too big! Wish you made a woman’s smaller size! Returned them!

Amazing support

These flats shoes rock! They keep sand out and stand up to everything from sand, to skiffs, to razor sharp coral.

I really wanted to love these.

First impressions when I received these were positive: good fit, felt comfortable, good support, durable construction. Impressions after wearing them for 8 days on North Andros are not so positive. 1. The footbed is quite hard and unforgiving. 2. Seems like they were built for people who don't log lots of miles while spending their time on firm, pristine sand flats. I logged probably 5-6 miles a day slowly working many, many acres of flats over 6 to 8 hours. The flats ranged from nice and firm to soft with many dips and holes. By the end of each day my feet HURT! In fact, I've never had my feet hurt so badly from shoes. 3. They seem overbuilt, too stiff and heavy for these kinds of applications. Again, if you're just cruising around perfectly hard flats for a couple hours, they're fine. 4. The sole could use a little more built-in traction. One day I walked a degraded coral shoreline to get to some flats. The rock was covered with a thin film of muck and these boots skated crazily on it and I almost wiped out. And this was not a spot it would be easy to get help if hurt. 5. It would be nice if the build was more like a light hiking shoe with more cushion, better flexibility and better traction. A more athletic build for people who move and cover a lot of ground. Would return them if I could.

Perfect with the Fly weight wading socks

So far I’ve used it wading off the beaches in Belize and have had no issues with them. They are comfy and sturdy. The arches are slightly high if you have flat feet like mine but I quickly got use to them. I also went a half size up to pair them with the Fly weight wading socks.

First class!

First trip in my Simms Flats Sneakers was on a weeklong bonefishing trip to Mars Bay on South Andros. I normally wear a shoe size of 7.5-8 wide, but went with size 9 on the Flats Sneakers with the neoprene socks. Fit was great. We waded some pretty significant distances on a couple of days, and the Sneakers were very comfortable. Glad I got them, and I’d certainly recommend them highly. Caught some nice fish too. I figure it was the Sneakers. Why not!
