The manufacturer's studs are a story by themselves in terms of price, I will take a look at your choice Fred and see what comes of it. I figure the only tough part will be finding screws without a point (just in case they are too long), but nothing a pair of 9 inch linemans pliers can't take care of.
Not to worry; 1/2 inch is the 'key' save for the Korker Chrome rubber bottoms (they're very thin). Anything (thickness) at/over and you're home free. On the 'rubber bottoms' just put the 'screw in's' in a cleat and you've got your half inch and then some.

For what it is worth, I live on the Root and walk down almost every night fishing..... I just wear tevas but if you are planning to come here as a destination, you need boots with felt. It is very slippery right now. However I do agree, you can walk inside the high water marks from hole to hole.
