    Default Anyone Figured out how to convert Felt Soled Waders to rubber soles

    Just wondering if anyone has found a way to convert the felt soled waders to rubber soled or knows where/who does a conversion. I have three of four sets that will need to be converted before 2012.
    Thanks in advance for any information.

    Locate a set of rubber soled waders in your size and to your liking.

    Buy them.

    And putting teflon on the bottoms because it would be less slippery!!!

    Contact a local cobbler. Also, on the Simms website you can find a list of folks that will put on Vibralam (msp?) and remove felt. Can't see why the approved cobblers couldn't do that for any make of wading boot. That may be a good place to start your search.

    I plan to pull off my felt and apply copious amounts of Shoe Goo to the bottom to build up a tread.
