Almost perfect, but not quite waterproof
on 8 November 2013
These boots are super comfy, I have worn them for hours walking the dog. I have walked in heavy rain, very muddy fields and London wet grass - but they let a bit of water in and my toe got wet. Nothing too bad. I have since tried waterproofing them further and even tried waxing up the seams but it just seems to get in. I noticed the insole was moving about a lot, the sole was slipping back towards my heal meaning my toe was sat over the edge of the sole. Pulled the sole out to check and could feel slight damp at the end of the show. Long grass seems to be the worst. Trying to work out where its coming in, it's at the bottom of the shoe at the front where your big toe is. Thinking about buying a better insole, that might help and also thinking about putting some silicone on my finger and running it across the front seams. These boots are fantastic and that really is the only drawback. The rest of the boot is waterproof, I even had them hosed down when I got them caked in mud and they held all the water out apart from that front pit on the left boot. Shame!
