The most popular is the Simms Hard Bite Star Cleat. This works in unison with the Vibram Streamtred Sole and fits right into the lug pattern. The Simms Hard Bite Star Cleat maintains a nice low profile but will provide a ton of traction once your weight compresses the sole of the boot. The next option for Vibram sole boot owners is the Simms Alumabite Star Cleat. These sit up a bit higher and give you a little more advanced traction. Since aluminum is relatively soft, it delivers fantastic traction. The downside is that they do sit up a bit higher than the Hard Bite Star Cleat so if you walk a long ways outside the river you might get tired of them! You can use a phillip's head screwdriver or a drill with a phillip's head attached to install either of these. All Simms Vibram Soled wading boots come with pilot holes and they are super easy to install. The last option is the Simms Hardbite Stud. This is more of a traditional stud and does quite deliver the traction of the Star Cleats and is more typically reserved for adding to your Simms Wading Sandals which is a sweet concept!
