Uhmm....no. The mesh on the side is for venting and air flow. These are sold as a breathable hiking shoe, not a waterproof one.

The Keen Targhee is the "waterproof" version of the Voyaguer.

Ditto on them not being waterproof -- that's the trade-off of having the mesh venting. I would disagree with the comment that the Targhee is the waterproof version of the Voyageur because I've found that the fit of the 2 boots is different. I'd love to be able to wear the Targhee on trips where I'm expecting stream crossings. However, my heels slip badly in the Targhee while the Voyageurs fit my narrow heels very nicely.
