Verified Buyer Reviewed by Madelaine from Illinois on Thursday, January 21, 2016This is my second pair of jungle gloves; I now own them in black and gunstock. They fit like they were custom-molded for my feet, and I've never had any issue with breaking them in. For people who haven't worn zero-drop shoes, be aware that it's a little unusual at first, and you may notice that your heels are hitting the ground harder than usual when you walk. Just stick with it; you're likely used to walking in shoes with giant wedges of cushioning at the heel! Think of these as stylish, protective socks, and you'll do just fine.

Question & Answer
They are soft suede, not waterproof. I've never gotten mine wet but I don't think it would be good for the leather.
Though comfortable, these shoes have a thin sole. They are suitable for driving and around the house. I cannot wear them for a full day on hard surfaces. I have seen my son's rock climbing shoes and they have a thin, curved sole so maybe these would suit your purpose but they are not meant to be outdoor, hiking, climbing shoes. They are suede with a cloth interior so they are not waterproof.
They are not waterproof. They would probably be okay if you got them wet once or twice, but are not made for waterspouts.
Better as street shoes or maybe for driving. They are soft, have no arch support, and are slip ons. I would not think they are suitable for any outdoor activity.
Definitely NOT suitable for any serious canyoneering. They would rapidly disintegrate and are certainly not waterproof. They are cute, comfortable kicking-around shoes, not meant for anything more.
No, they are leather. I suppose getting them wet wouldn't be terrible but certainly not waterproof.
No, they are not waterproof. You don't want to get them wet.
They will handle light moisture, but I wouldn't recommend them for extended walks unless you are very accustomed to minimalist shoes. They have very little cushioning and a very neutral foot bed.
I would not wear these shoes for canyoneering. They are ideal for an everyday attractive go to shoe. They are not waterproof.
NO, these Merrell Jungle Glove Shoes are not appropriate for canyoneering. They have virtually no support to them, they are not waterproof,
and NO they shouldn't get wet. However, personally, I love these shoes for driving, for walking on smooth, uncluttered walkways (as in no rocks, sticks,
protrusions), for walking about town (as at the farmers market). Yes, these shoes are comfortable, with a good sole, but they're not for sporting activities. Therefore, while I suggest you steer away from these Merrells for canyoneering, I cannot suggest nor recommend a shoe for that purpose. Perhaps some fellow canyoneers or someone on a canyoneer's blog can be of help to you.
These shoes aren't waterproof, but they could get wet. They're nubuck/suede, so they may never look quite the same after immersion, but that isn't all that important for canyoneering. You might want to stuff them with paper after getting them wet to avoid shrinkage, unless you just wear them until they dry out. Otherwise, I think they'd be a good shoe for that purpose if you want to really feel what's going on under your feet (they' don't have a deeply cushioned footbed).
They're suede, so you'd need to hit them with some waterproofing spray first if you felt they might be wet often. Also, they're not high-cut and the elastic gore in the top goes somewhat deep, so any water that would cover your toes would get your feet quite soggy.
These are not waterproof.
