Those have a near identical tread pattern to the neoprene dinghy boots I wear all day when sibbing… the sole despite being durable over the past couple of years is extremely soft and grippy on all slippery surfaces.

Thanks anyway
We have various types of these in our family and they are all super grippy - they are designed for slippery wet surfaces! It's pretty impossible unless pootling in dead calm and launching off a pontoon to keep your feet dry in a SIB so best to use something designed to get wet.

I agree. Never try to keep my feet or legs dry when in one of my smaller boats

Neoprene Sandles and Shorts then...if you time it for High water launch/recovery (and you have some help) you shouldn't need anything....
Get in the Boat and cast off while the help sorts the Trailer!....Stay in the Boat and drive on!...while the help tows you out
Most growth/slime occurs at Half tide down or further on concrete slips.

You won't slip on any wet rocks or slipways using studded wetsuit boots like these. I never wear mine, I do wear the boots that comercial fishermen, butchers and abattoir workers use, they don't really slip very much at all.

Any algae build up on slipways is soon pressure washed off by council over here, probably afraid of being suede.
