My old felt-soled wading boots bit the dust last Saturday. They were worthless for anything over a short hike anyway and dropping off a steep slope with them on was an adventure to say the least. What rubber-bottomed wading shoes have you had the best luck with? I need them to be comfortable enough to hike several miles in yet "sticky" enough to keep me from breaking my neck while wading. I'd love to own a pair of Simms G-3 Guide boots if money were no object but as always it is. Looking at the Redington Skagits as I found them on sale for around $95 with free shipping and they have good reviews but I'm open to suggestions.
