Familiarity: I've used it several times
Been wearing these for a week now. My first thought was they were hard & not very flexible. Didn't think they would be any good. HOWEVER, I wore these to the woods for 5 hours the other day, barely noticed I had them on. Another day still I spent wondering around costco for an hour or two. This usually leaves my feet aching by the end, but they were not. They are very comfortable. I haven't given them the water test yet but so far walking across the lawn in heavy dew left me feet totally dry.
I guess the only negative thing i can thing of is watch out for the rocks if the soles are wet..........Slippery is an understatement.
