Not on par with the shoe
The gaiters are a great idea, but they don't fit right. They are ideal for trails with water and even wet grass or foliage, but they don't fit tight enough around the back to keep mud and muck out. If the elastic that the gaiters hook into would have recessed areas it would be easier to attach them without having to stand on your head to get the right angle with 3 Gs of force to get them on. Great idea, but could be improved.
