the shoes are pretty decent as far as a creeking booty goes. not super sticky (problem), but generally acceptable.
the problem is that the construction is complete crap. i'm now about to retire my second pair in a few years. they really just can't handle the rigors of the river. it's a shame, but the just fall apart. the entire seem between upper and sole just comes apart. on my current pair, i had to glue it all together, but it is now coming apart again since i don't have the best glue.
end result is that the nrs attack shoe seems like a good idea, but shoddy construction makes them not worth your time.

Scouting on shore or navagating in the river, these are good shoes. Not only do they protect the toes and ankles, the shoes have a great grip (must be wore a few times for the grip to work). These shoes also last. I've had my latest pair for about 5 years!

These shoes are not for the California paddler. They make granite seem like oiled glass. I fell wearing them on a portage on the Upper NF Kaweah. I ran Brush Creek into the Kern and had to take them off as they made me slip and nearly fall over a 18' drop.
