As good as it gets

Been using these for about 2 years. I had to get a half size larger than normal. It was true to the reviews, No break-in period and super water proof. Sometimes I stomp in a few inches of water while my friends pick their way over streams just to piss them off. You can stand in about 4 to 5 inches for awhile and test them yourself, you won't feel a drop. My buddy bought them after seeing me do this and loves them too. I used to wear leather boots and these are so much lighter and better. Love the lacing system, double knot it and it stays perfect all day. These even survived a winter overnight on the Southern Presis/Isolation in NH and kept my feet dry although they were out of their league for that trip in general. I will buy another pair once these are worn out. I have a pair of Salomon trail runners and I'm convinced they make the best footwear.
