The original traction and stealth advantage for rocky bottoms
There’s a simple reason felt-soled wading shoes have been the go-to standard for anglers for decades – they just plain perform.
Built for a life on the rocks
Felt soles are at their sure-footed best on rocky river bottoms. The soft sole instantly conforms to the variations in the surface of the rocks to give you maximum contact and therefore maximum traction. The additional sole softness also makes moving silently along the river bottom easier for added stealth as you stalk into a hot spot. Felt-sole shoes also provide sure footed traction along dry rocks around the stream, giving you the confidence to press on to untapped areas.
