After wearing these boots for three months on weekends outdoors and at work occasionally, the sole is separating in a few areas and they are not the least bit waterproof. I could sneeze on the toe area and my sock would be wet. On the contrary, no doubt the most comfortable boot I have ever worn in my 13 years destroying footwear as a mechanic. I was hoping these would have the bonded sole of my dreams...comfort and durability. They suite my feet, just not my lifestyle.
