Very solid, very comfy hiking boot. I have used as a waterproof shoe to walk around Bellingham, WA, without having soggy wet feet. I also spent a week using these shoes while staying in a cabin for a week in Plain, WA, while there was a record amount of snowfall. All of the time using these boots my feet have remained dry and warm. I don't think these would be a good choice for summer weather.
Another note: While storing these shoes in the car a jug of water spilled and put about a cup of water inside. Because I did not have any other shoes with me I was forced to put them on with the inside soaked. I am pleased to report that while my feet were wet they were still warm, and it seemed like the amount of water in the shoe decreased as I wore them. Perhaps the moisture wicking inside helped release some of the water.
Overall I recommend these shoes.
