When is waterproof not waterproof?
on 30 April 2014
These boots are described as waterproof and I bought them for dog walking, where \I would cover grass and occasional mud. They let water in and leave me feet soaking. Here is the response from the seller when \I complained (and was refused a refund by both the seller and Amazon). Buyer beware!
Thank you for your email unfortunately, the snow boots you ordered are snow boots and not designed not to be worn in wet conditions. If you were just wearing them in the snow, the snow would not penetrate through the zip, as the snow is light and dry. Please see the specs regarding waterproof on this item.
This product is waterproof meaning it is resistant to water ingress/penetration of its fabrics and materials. Waterproof is not an absolute term, and there are degrees of waterproofing from rain/water resistant through to impermeable/water-tight. Where possible we will always try and indicate the level of waterproofing achieved by a product so you can gauge whether it meets your requirements.
