These boots are not waterproof as advertised, they let water in the stiching, prone to scuffing and I would suggest not really fit for purpose,They are comfy and breathable.

I bought a pair of these last year for the 3 peaks Challenge. I was attracted by the claim that they were water proof. I managed to get them for £89 fro Milletts. Two other guys within our group also bought a pair. They are reasonably comfortable. I agree with the other comment that they do scuff easily. I tested the waterproof claim out to the full on Skafell Pike and they let me down big time. They arent waterproof. The main boot are waterproof but the water comes through where the laces are. The net affect was boots full of water. Rather like wearing a pair of wellies! I was so disappointed with them that I took them back to Milletts and once I explained the issues I experienced, they gave me a full refund. I therefore would not recommend the boots but would strongly recommend you buy boots from Milletts becuase of the great customer service I received.
