I bought a pair of the cheapest tennis shoes i could find to wear over mine. I had to buy them a couple sizes bigger than normal.

I suppose you could go with some cheap tennies. I use Cabela's ultra light wading boots, I've almost worn them out but I've had them for about 5 seasons. Most wading boots have Felt souls that grab onto wet rocks real well, there are others with studded souls and one brand, Corkers, that have a removable soul, you get felt and studded rubber souls that you can change. I would suggest buying wading boots, best if you can try them on with the stocking foot waders so you get the size that fits best. A good boot will make all the difference out on the water.

Hope this helps

Yes, I concur. Buy the wading boots/ wading shoes. Old sneakers or footwear not designed for wading can be downright dangerous when you are wading a stream or lake, as you can easily slip, your waders can fill with water, and you can drown. Remember to wear that wading belt cinched up tight, too. Keeps the waders from filling with water completely in the event you do get wet.
