    Wet Wading

    Curious to know what you wear for footwear when wet wading. I've always worn waders mainly for the support in the wading boots and the water temperature, but might try something different this year.

    I've always just wear neoprene socks and wading boots. I wet wade a lot and have learned that one must wash your neoprene once in a while...

    Mike,
    You can pick up neoprene booties made for wet wading for about US$20. They tend to be a bit thinner than the neoprene in the waders themselves, so keep that in mind.
    I also bought Simms' Stream Tread Sandal late last year on sale but have yet to try them.

    Bought a pair of Simms' Stream Tread Sandal last summer , just be sure to wear them on pavement for a few days before hitting the water , seems that mine had a release agent coating the bottom and was NOT grippy at all , fast forward a year later with some fishing time and social wear and they totally rock..

    Old sandals with hexhead screws in the sole for traction.
