These shoes are good quality, pretty much waterproof and look lovely. The laces are not the best, they always came undone within minutes so I have replaced them. My biggest issue with them is that they are extremely tight and narrow, which surprised me as El Naturalista claims to sell shoes that are comfortable and mould to the shape of your foot. Mine haven't done that after 3 months of wearing, so I will have to get a shoe stretcher. Otherwise a good product.
