Simms Vibram-soled boots kick felt butt around the water, and run a close second in it. But like racy motor cars, an upgrade to the rubber can further increase performance. Sometimes the situation requires you go big, or go home.
The latter is not an option. Meanwhile, understanding my upcoming opponent is significantly nimbler than I, tuning for maximum efficacy was required.
