With the current pushing against your legs and your eyes on the river, you need to be able to trust your feet. The more solid your footing, the more you can relax and enjoy being in the water. Our AlumiBite™ Star Cleats work directly with our StreamTread™ lug pattern for traction you can trust on varied river bottoms and mossy rocks. The cleats are soft enough to conform to what's under your foot as you move along the unseen river bottom. With solid footing, your cast is better and you're free to explore the river.
