Who else has heard about these? It seems to me they would also work in the surf zone. Looks like a great design for the bar type grips, but I'm not sure the connection between the front and back half of the cleats will hold up in extreme rocky surf situations. It looks like a rather flimsy piece of stainless steel that would break somewhat easily jumping around on the Montauk rocks.

 

I'd be interested in trying them out if they weren't listed for such a high price...

They're getting some good press in the Great Lakes region. I personally don't see anything to want these over good sticky rubber boots with carbide studs.

The 5.10 Stealth or the Vibram Idrogrip sole materials. These are found in LLBean and Simms wading boots, respectively.

 

I'm currently using a pair of Chota boots with a lug sole design made from a soft(er) compound. These don't have the room temperature "tacky feel" that goes with sticky rubber soles previously noted. Since I mostly fish areas of gravel beds and not single large rocks, the Chota boots are working okay.
