On the wading boot horizon?
The current thread re Montana pondering the banning of felt makes it look pretty clear that rubber soles are in most of our futures....likely with studs if we want to stay upright on snotty rocks.
Many of us have boots due for replacement. Maybe we can squeak 1 more season out of them...at least that's where I am.
Personally, I'm reticent to invest in boots while I think it's possible (based purely on hope) the boot guys might come up with a more viable solution, maybe by 2102.
Is there any reason to wait a year or so to invest in rubber soles, or is the concensus that they are about as good as they are gonna get?
