While they did a good job at keeping my foot dry initially, they basically fell apart after three months of daily (mon-fri.) use. The soles de-laminated and holes developed in the places where the shoe creases. Honestly, I thought I was getting a shoe made for serious use in the outdoors, instead I bought an attractive shoe that performed for a couple of weeks then fell apart. North Face should be ashamed of themselves, they used to pride themselves on making truly reliable outdoor gear. This shoe is worthless for what they advertise. You might as well buy any other sneaker, im sure they will perform as well and will probably cost less.
