i read the previous reviews, i agree with all of them with one exception. i think these boots will breathe well. they are not water proof. they are exactly what i wanted, being light, good looking, flexible, not waterproof. they are perfect for day hikes on rough trails. might even work for a summer back pack. probably not best choice for snow or real wet conditions or climbing rocks. just as my mountaineering boots are the wrong boots for day hikes on rough trails. i am not going to waterproof these. BTW these are REALLY good looking. Italian style i guess. and their fit is perfect - i have size 12 feet, size 12 fits great with one thick sock and a liner. no heel slip (probably because the boot is so flexible). lots of room toes.
