Simms Freestone felt boots grip very well on the slipperiest of rocks! Felt is legal in NM! The best way to not transfer non invasive species is to soak your boots in water and a capful of bleach.
Navigating strong currents and slippery rock riverbeds is part of the experience. Our Freestone® Wading Boots - Felt Soles has a proven record of durability and traction in rocky rivers around the world. It provides the support underfoot and at the ankle for negotiating slick, unseen river bottoms. The synthetic uppers take the abuse of brush, rock, and water in stride, while a cushioned midsole and partial neoprene lining provide all-day cushioning and warmth.
