If you are looking for a waterproof shoe do NOT buy these. After two or three walks over wet grass these starting letting in water around the toes. Once wet they take days to dry out. I haven't even worn them in wet weather yet! I am really disappointed as I thought Merrell was a reliable brand but these simply do not live-up to their claims. The shoes are very comfortable and have a very good sole but letting in water as easily as this renders them a really poor buy.
