This is exactly why I like the guide shoe compared to the impact. It has the same intense grip, dry or wet, without all the foam padding to weigh me down and act as a sponge in wet weather. I tried a pair of skate shoes (mostly to save some bucks) but after the 5 10 grip I was spoiled and I had to come back. I haven't seen anything that provides as solid a grip as these soles.
