My suggestion is that you get the black Cougar Paws as they are a little more water resistant than the others. I go through about 2 pairs a year. But I also do roofing and inspections too. They are good on roofs, however, do not and I mean do not put total faith in them because at some point you WILL have the pad on the underside of the boot roll off the boot. Then you will be performing ninja moves on the roof!
