Berhaus Explorer Trek boots
I bought a pair of these as casual boots (I prefer boots to shoes; each to their own). I find them very comfortable but, on certain surfaces, such as wet paving slabs, they're frighteningly slippery.
It's the compound which makes the difference on hard surfaces. Some are much better than others, (the tread on boots is for traction on loose surfaces or grass).
And the softer compounds really can grip. Rock shoes an extreme example The pay off is that they don't last as long, especially on harder surfaces.
I've certainly noticed quite big differences between some of my shoes even from the same company. Although I'd say that they actually made sense in context.
If it really is a major problem, and good boots otherwise, you could try asking lancashire sports repair or some such to see if they could resole them with something that would work better.
