This is my second pair. After I purchased the first pair, I recommended it to friends who actually went and bought them. The shoes are very comfortable. The first pair lasted 2 years of semi-regular use. However, my second pair lasted only about 8 months of nonregular wear before becoming no longer waterproof. Not, or at least no longer, very durable considering that I didn't wear them much and had much less than a year of stated function. It doesn't even rain much here in SF. Stoked on the brand but not this product.
