I couldn't agree more with Billie Prescott - these boots are NOT waterproof. During a 5 day trip of the Bernese Oberland I had a similar experience. My toes were squelching in water after a day in deepish snow. The upper parts of the boots and my socks were fine, (so no seepage through the top - due to the GORETEX gaiters) but I had to wring out the lower ends of my socks when I arrived at the mountain hut. (Embarrassingly, I was the only one who had to do this).
I believe the materials used may be ok 'in theory' (e.g. when immersed in a bucket of water) but in the field they simply just don't work. I have never had this problem with other boots.
