So, this spring, Bite has come out with a sandal called the Headhunter ($69), of which I happen to have a pair. The Headhunters are basically a sturdy trail sandal-incorporating Bite's toe-guard-with a sticky-rubber sole designed for use around water. I won't say they'll work perfectly on wet rocks, but in terms of a compromise sole that's good on trails as well as around streams, they're probably as good as anything on the market right now. Also, the Headhunters have no hook-and-loop fasteners; small sliding buckles keep them fastened firmly to your feet. Give them a look!
