First off i will say these shoes are very comfy and certainly waterproof. On the down side once the sole is wet on rocks it is similar to wearing a bar of soap on your feet. Also the first pair i bought the heel on the right sole began to peel and make noise. I thought this was a fluke so i returned them an got a second pair. The sole on this pair has begun to peel off in the same way as if the right shoe did not recive enough glue... When i eventually return this pair i will not be trying them again.
