Great shoes. Bought these for keeping cheet grass (spelling?) out of my dogs feet and they work great. Kira would prefer not to wear them but shrugs it off and carries on. I have noticed that After a couple hours out in the grass the seeds start to work their way through the mesh but since buying these I haven't had to dig a single seed out of her skin. Of course I'm still checking her upper legs and such after each adventure. They are secure. It's true that they will spin on her feet if I'm not paying attention to snugness and don't do a check about 15 minutes after we head out.
