These shoes needed no breaking in...they were incredibly comfortable right from the start. While they're not waterproof, they are water-resistant and hold up very well over unstable, soggy ground. I think I might end up wearing these every day. :)

Good looking shoe and seems to be waterproof, although I have not used them in heavy rain. Relatively comfortable with the exception of a rather cumbersome lacing system, that I do not like. Somehow you're supposed to tuck the "fast lace" up into the top of the tongue, but in doing so it becomes fat and uncomfortable sticking out from the shoe. Felt slightly wide, kinda lame lacing... but cool enough otherwise

After much review reading for water shoes I ordered these & wore them to wade the creek & fish. Every year we buy the cheap water shoes at the store and they tear up and you have a pound of gravel in them within minutes. The very small pebbles & sand still get through (why I made them only a 4 star) but they were very comfortable and easy on & off. Also nice traction & very durable..you couldn't feel it much when you stubbed your toe on bigger rocks like with the cheap [$] water shoes. Also read reviews that these run big but I still ordered my size 8, the shoe was a little big but I don't think I would have likead a 1/2 size smaller..i just tightened the back heel strap & it worked well. LOVE THESE SHOES!

These shoes are perfect to put on right out of the box with no break in time. I like the easy lace up design. Used them on gravel trail and they are so supportive. They are very comfortable, lightweight trail running shoes...unbeatable!
