    This is the first time I tried a cheaper Keens competitor for sport sandals. Am regretting it. The straps are a hard plasticky substance with a fuzzy backing, instead of the stretchy fabric + nylon straps combo that Keens have. This means that the shoes 1) fit less well (as there's no give) and 2) give the wearer blisters where the hard plastic rubs on the heel. Penny wise, pound foolish - going to have to go buy those Keens after all.

    Here is the TLDR if your a
    Good value for price for basic boots.
    Are actually waterproof.
    Don't expect $200 dollar performance but best under $50 for waterproof cheapies I've found.

    Good stuff:
    Went hiking in out of 2-3" puddles and small steams no issues.
    I didn't stand in them fishing but my toes feet were dry for light hiking use.
    I've since treated them with water repellent to try and get more life from the boot.
    Soles seem to be good. They are tough but pliable.
    These are a hard rubber/poly sole. They are what they look like. Not some fake foam stuff.
    Boot is a softer Cowish leather suede. So it'll shouldn't require much break in of the boot or your feet.

    Bad stuff.
    I ordered an 11 and they still seem a little big. I normally wear a 10.5 or 11 US so that's my fault. Even long hikes when the foot swells from standard excerise they still felt big.
    I'm going to replace the insole that came with it with a thicker gel type. The included one is just a thin poof foam.
    This will allow me to stomp on rocks a bit better without getting fatigue and take up some of the space of a larger boot.

    The suede shows marks quickly. Since these are boots and not church shoes i'm sure people will understand.
    The toebox and boot in general are softer than I normally like.
    The first pair of white socks I wore with them turned yellow in pressure points from from leather dye. The yellow color is not from the cow's pelt and was added which is typical of most modern leathers but the dye process was cheapie.

    These VS the world.
    If you can get this on sale it's probably a better value than the big5, Ross Walmart cheapie boots.
    I murdered some Adidas waterproof boots in about 1 month of light hikes that costed more.

    Sierra TP is actually TJmax company? Which isn't bad but they Spammed the heck out of my email once I ordered the boots. We all gotta get money and do business but it was a bit much. A quick update to my email settings fixed it.
    Thier store was less like big5 or REI and more like a cloths store when I visited them in Silverdale Wa. Not bad but its 90% cloths and 10% sleeping bags/yoga stuff. Expect flannel shirts and yoga mats not axes and blackpower rifles.
    Good staff there.

    I expect to replace these after 1 year of light hikes.
    I swear to YOU dear reader if they don't last that long I'll jump on here and update.
    Read that as no news is good news.
    I bought on 3/1 2017
