  Compression failure
  Posted by: goobs on Nov-14-12 2:08 PM (EST)

Dear Board

All neoprene footwear will leak from compression failure over time. How soon and to what degree depends on the amount of compression force that is exerted.

This I know for a fact because every single pair of waders I have owned over the last 25 years has leaked in the soles of the feet. Some waders took longer than others, but they all failed eventually.
