HUD, you are correct, new materials make it much easier to navigate the slippery bottoms of some our fas moving rivers. I have a pair of Simms with cleated rubber soles love Em, but not cheap. ($250+). I am on the river two to three times a weekend never a problem.

I love my SIMMS breathables, with separate wading shoes. Very comfortable, no leaks (knock on wood!), and they dry quickly for storage 'til next time.

Not to hi-jack the thread but why do you need a special shoe? Why not just use an old pair of tennis shoes or hiking boots? Thanks, John

I just received a set of Frogg Togg waders and boots that I finally broke down and ordered.

I can see that the boots are made to drain easily. They are also built to protect the waders which can be a fairly expensive investment. I fished this last weekend in shorts and sandals and did OK.

I'd guess tennis shoes or hiking boots would work.
