I've been wearing daily for about two weeks now and still not quite broken in on the arches, though my arches may be a bit high (I can wear cowboy boots, but it's a very tight fit). The soles are very hard and unforgiving, which takes away from the comfort while walking. The soles are also very slippery on hard, wet surfaces, which I don't care for at all. I was caught by surprise on this one and almost wound up on the ground. I have not tested water resistance of the upper - however, these shoes do not breathe at all and by the end of the day my feet and socks (and insoles) are wet and stinky. The insoles out of the box were noisy when walking due to friction between the insoles and the insides of the shoes. I added talc generously to the insoles and replaced them which quieted the noise completely, for a few days. Now after a week, I'm hearing a little. Overall, not happy.
