Overall great shoe/boot. Takes a week to break in. Glad I purchased these
I consider these a hybrid between a Bates 922 and Converse high tops. It's a jungle converse shoes, so to speak. The material around the boot is very well constructed and it works as advertised with draining water. I use this shoe soley for crossfit, running, and ocean swimming/surfing. In that capacity they have worked very well. I have not slipped, and the shoes do not get heavy in water. It's soft enough to run with with the added ankle support. Since running with vibrams, I always liked the minimalist approach to running footwear and these shoes fit the bill for me as a much heavier duty shoes. I have owned this pair for a little over 2 years now.
I do not recommend these for duty use though. While the construction is well, I feel a good jungle boots of at least 6"-8" would fit the bill. All you need to do is fall in one mud pit and you're going to have the sorriest of time. The benefit of this over the converse is that it doesn't make "squishy" sounds afterwards.
Despite its well construction of material, I feel they went a bit cheap on the bottom soles. The aggressive texture has faded to a point where I need to change it. However, given two years of use and the affordable pricing, I'm not unhappy with this. The shoes still work as well as they should but I'm guessing one day it's going to tear.
