Robert P.wrote a review of Timberland Earthkeepers Rugged Originals Leather 6in Boot - Men's on March 4, 2011
These are comfortable and light. Soles wear quickly and they are only waterproof to the base of the tongue as the tongue isnt joined to the boot so water can get in from pretty much bottom of ankle height. I'd call them splash proof. They are also not insulated so they are not good for long exposure to cold. So long as you know all this this is a comfortable good looking boot.
