I just got back from the high country and a good couple days with these. I have to say they are a new found love. They are great for wet wading streams and smaller creeks that are on mostly hard rock. Can be a little bit of a hassle in the gravel as it gets under your feet and can be difficult to get out. Rock solid on the slippery rocks, even crossed hard rock under water falls without slipping. I would definitely recommend them for anyone who likes to spend time in the water without there waders on! I picked them up in store for a total of $97 and some change.
