Well made, comfortable, lousy traction

These are typical Merrell shoes: well made, comfortable. They fit my feet well. But the Vasque soles are a disaster. They have almost no traction on wet surfaces. And it's easy to see why: to create the artistic tread pattern, they have only bits and pieces of rubber on the ground. I took a couple fliers on a wet trail last weekend. No injuries, but I was pretty embarrassed when, sprawled out, being passed by little kids. I will wear these to work but not trust them outside. They should come with a warning.
