It took only about a week to break these shoes in and only because my right foot is slightly larger than my left. My left foot fit perfectly from the get go, but my toes in the right foot in these shoes kept going numb. After a week, all my toes seems to be getting along nicely together. I haven't tried them out in the rain to see how waterproof these are but I'm okay with that. Comfort for me is priority; hopefully, they'll also live up to the 'waterproof' as advertised.

I got these for my morning dog walk and they are just fine. The metal eyelets allow the laces to pull tight quickly for fast donning so the dogs are not kept waiting. Waterproof also a plus since we attempt most any weather. And the narrow profile allows for better foot placement so I'm less likely to trip on broken sidewalk. They don't feel clunky and my feet look smaller too. It's true there's not much arch support, but not a problem for forty minute walk; I have also worn them at work all day too and didn't have sore feet. They have more support than squishy court shoes.

I ordered these for an upcoming trip overseas. I really liked the styling and color. I was disappointed that I could barely get my foot into the shoe. I am typically very true to size. I did not think that ordering a bigger size would be helpful since the length was pretty good. If you have a narrow foot then I believe these would work really well.

The appearance attracted me - great color combo- and the fit's fine, but they're just never going to be my favorite shoe - very little arch support, not a lot of cushioning. I wore them for a day at the State Fair (walking on pavement mainly) and the doggies were barkin' by mid afternoon. Adding a a good gel insole helped -- but why have to spend an extra $12-15? I still wear them, but if I'm spending a full day on my feet, even my clunky Fat Baby boots are more comfortable.

jury still out- seems tight in toe area, but willing to see after break-in period...not ready to send back as I love the looks and I think they may conform to my feet after a bit of time.... will re-comment soon.
Best Uses: 'dew' or wet walks, Grass, Paved Trails
Cons: Poor Cushioning, Seems narrow, Small toe box

These are the shoes I reach for when it's wet, slushy or muddy. Good fit, but at first they seemed a bit narrow (I never normally need a wide). Laces adjust, and they may have stretched slightly to my foot. They feel perfect after a few months. Only drawback I noticed with these was a persistent chemical/leather smell.

I would describe these shoes as not uncomfortable. I think with use I will not even notice them. The toe box is a bit longish, (size 7.5,) but the shoes are snug fitting otherwise. Heels don't slip, (which I often have a problem with.) The green pair I bought are a subtle moss green. Can't wait to hit Park trails with them.
