Anyone ever tried the new felt-less wading shoe? They look like some kind of neopreen cleated sole and don't have any felt at all.
Some of the places I go fishing are pretty bad for slippery rocks. Often I'm miles away from any help should I take a bad fall and I really want to be sure of my step.
Sometimes I have to do a lot of hard climbing over steep, loose, pine and leaf littered mountain slopes and here again, a slip or slide into a rock filled gorge would not make for a good day.
Am considering buying some wading shoes soon and want to make the right choice. The new felt-less shoes look nice for hiking but would they grip on wet slippery rocks?
Any info would be much appreciated.

Thanks, B.C.
