I've had 2 pairs of the soles and the screws that hold the aluminum hex heads back out despite tightening and adding thread lock. I think the points of the hex heads get torqued by wading on the rocks. Enough counter-clockwise torque makes the heads rotate and then losen the screws. I think this would be good if they were maybe riveted in place, or maybe if they were round instead of hexagonal and harder for rocks to catch and your foot weight to turn. But the boots themselves are top-notch. I'm going to contact Korkers for another option. I'm thinking the studded Vibram. I need something for snow/ice steelhead wading, and so can't do the studded felts.
