On the other hand, the radial sole is made of rubber and has a groove on the sole to make it non-slip. It is often used in fishing shoes. Although it is easy to walk on land, it is slippery in rocky areas and mountain streams, so It is better to refrain from mountain stream fishing Probably.

Besides felt and radial, I hit the felt with spikes Felt spike sole There is also. More grip than felt, Less slippery on rocks and underwater It has been with. Waders and shoes with felt sole boots are sufficient for first-time mountain stream fishing, but felt spikes may be considered for those who are particular about their equipment.
