I have them and they are awesome. :thumbup: Way better than other simms boots. They make you about 4 inches taller too so they're good for scaring people out of your way on the vedder. :cheers: Plus they're stylin'. They will last you longer and are more comfortable. The tongue is really innovative and w/ the neoprene inside combined w/ the gravel guard that comes w/ most simms waders they allow for no water or dirt to seep in making them stay lighter for those long days on the river bank. And they'll protect your high priced waders as well. IMO a lightweight boot that is more sturdy, well-crafted, and looks cool make them definately worth the $200+ price tag. And from my experience simms has been really good with their warranty coverage as well. I say go for it.
