These boots are excellent! I didn't know they were waterproof when I bought them - I wasn't expecting them to be for the price, but after a few journeys when it chucked it down I noticed that my feet remained bone dry. The looks and price were what first attracted me - I bought the plain black pair with a slight carbon fibre type pattern on them. They are very very comfortable and have armour at the shin and ankle, and plastic sliders at the toe and top of the boot. After a year of using them almost every day they are showing little sign of wear. I was expecting the velcro zip covers to be the first thing to go, but they seem to be as good as new. The only areas are the rubber panel on the left boot which has it's 'ribbed' grip pattern slightly flattened from gear changes and the toe slider on the right boot - but that's no fault of the boot, it's my fault from being a roundabout hooligan! These boots are thoroughly recommended if you don't want to spend a fortune and want something that's good all year round.
