These boots were advertised as waterproof, but my experience says otherwise. I went for an hour and half hike on a ski trail, just after it stopped raining, and my socks and feet were soaked when I finished. Previously I had noticed that the boots got hot quite easily, which I had assumed was due to the GoreTex and "waterproof" leather exterior. On the positive side, the boot are very comfortable and provide excellent grip and cushioning. These should be fine if you hike in decent weather most of the time, but I wouldn't recommend them for demanding conditions. I would try ordering half a size up (as I did), they seem to run small.
