I purchased these boots for work and have been wearing for about a month now. I work for a major auto parts company as a delivery driver and do a lot of walking and climbing ladders pulling parts for my deliveries. I deliver in the rain often and the boots are water tight. My only complaint is they tend to be hot when the temps rise. I did return to my sneakers one day and I noticed that the boots were considerably surprisingly more comfortable. Excellent value and craftsmanship.
