Chota discontinued their Kick Boat Booties but there are still some in mixed sizes kicking around outfitters for various prices (got mine for $25!).

New shipments haven't come in yet so size range might be limited, I know I've only got a couple pairs left, but with the 5-10 (Climbing Shoe Mfg.) made soles I can just about run on slime covered surfaces and not be on my keester.
Running on slime covered surfaces?|

What are you doing in Washington, D.C., Marshall?

would be either strap on chains or metal studded wading boots preferably with felt soles.Felt/studa will wear some and eventually need to be resoled but rubber bottom boots offer zero grip on any slippery surface so it's well worth it.
Before you buy anything with felt soles|

I'd suggest checking out area regulations. They've been banned on some rivers in an effort to slow the spread of little nasties like Didymo.
What did you say? |

I've had real good luck with Vibram sole|

shoes like the Merrell Maipo. Of course they have been discontinued but they were sold as canyoneering shoes, so the sole was a little sticky.
Love my Astral Brewers|

I will second the recommendation for the Astral Brewer. I recently got a pair and they perform as claimed. Good traction and quick drying, lightweight. I am very happy with mine.
