    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

    Great boots. Can't say how they are in the snow and much but have been trekking about and they are comfortable supportive and all around great. They are reported to be insulated with Thinsulate and are supposed to be waterproof. If so, amazing. All around comfortable great boots. I wear an 11 and have wide feet. These fit well with right amount of room.

    I purchased these for my collage age daughter as she was looking for Duck boots and I wanted them warm. Most brands of Duck boots are very cold near the toes. I was on line searching and came up with these. They were on sale and had fantastic reviews. They were low boots which is what she wanted and we both loved the blue. When they arrived I was really happy with the fit and the warmth of them (we wear the same size). We live in a very cold climate and she goes to school in an even colder one. Amazing boot, fantastic price. I went back on line and was able to get pair for myself!! Reason for four stars is I have not worn them outside yet and have not asked my daughter what she thought as to warmth. But I have not heard anything bad from her so that probably means five stars!!

    Got these for my daughter before a trip to Colorado. They were easy to get on and off after skiing and warm in single digits. Thumbs up!

    These are cute but I am still trying to decide if I will keep them. There is a weird thing going on with the tongue it is very thick and don't know how much it will bother me. If not for that they would be great, they are cute. But comfort is way more important to me.

    Cute and comfy boots, a little tight on the top of your foot as the rubber stops short on your foot. Well made and great price.
