Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had these for about 5 months and they started falling apart almost as soon as I got them. The finger loops frayed, the soles separated from the bottom of the boot, and recently one of the finger loops broke.
I thought they were really great on slippery rocks and were pretty comfortable. I used them in both my playboat and creeker; they fit fine in both.
I'd buy them again if the construction were better, but I don't think I want to drop $70 on a pair of shoes that don't even hold up to a boating season.
