Do they grip on slippery rocks?

I have found that only felt soles will grip onto slippery river rocks. Anything else, when walking a rocky bottom, is just an exercise in preventing an ankle injury as you slip all over the place. What's the deal with these. Do has anyone "really" waded upstream in these bad boys (i.e. fishing) and found them to grip like felt? Thanks.

It is just a rubber sole so it will be like any other water shoe. Definitely not comparable to felt as far as grip.

Thanks. Good to know. Every other "sticky" water shoe I tried out there with a rubber sole always just had me sliding off rocks and stubbing my toes.
