    Just to add a thought. A friend of mine suggested wearing the "ice gripper" thingies on your shoes. By this I mean the pull over ones like Yak Trax. Haven't tried it yet but sounds good.

    I use a pair of Keen Gorge boots for wet wading and paddling. They are a mid height neoprene boot. The soles are pretty good for our mud and flat rock streams. I think I would opt for my regular wading boots for rocky streams. The ones I've been in, Tennessee and Michigan, I wear waders... I must have a different definition of cold water than some.

    I use Keen H2 sandals if it is hot and there aren't a lot of big rocks. Otherwise I wear a pair of Orvis Riverguard ultralights.

    I bought a pair of good quality studded felt wading boots that fit over regular cotton socks when I found them in a close-out sale a couple years ago. They give me the grip and ankle support I need - but I'd be just as happy to use my regular boots with neoprene inserts if I hadn't found those boots at half price. Cliff

    I can recommend the NRS boundry water sock for wet wading. This is a knee high neoprene sock made for canoeing and kayaking with portages. It is fully seam sealed has a cuff seal at the top that actually keeps most of the water out. They come right up to the pit of my knee, the tallest sock i have found. I wear mine over some light poloypro sock liners for comfort.
