are wonderful! Comfortable right out of the box -- needed no break-in period. I have a very narrow heel and a wide forefoot, so finding shoes that fit well is a challenge, but these fit the bill perfectly. These boots
are one of three different brands
that I ordered and the only ones I'm keeping. I ordered a half size larger than what I regularly wear to allow for thicker socks
- and I couldn't be more pleased. As to the water resistance - well, we got 3 - 4 inches of very wet, slushy snow the day the boots
arrived, so they got tested right away since I had to do some snow blowing. My feet stayed perfectly dry and warm during the hour or so that I was tromping around outside. The boots
shed water like a duck! I will add that I had great traction in the slippery stuff, too. Great product!
