Needing a pair of shoes to wear in the yard and seeing the Lawn Care Nut wearing a pair of these, I decided to give a pair a try. Out of the box, they were annoyingly difficult to put on due to the high narrow throat (which is nice once they're on) and the lace fabric binding in the plastic eyelets. This forces you to loosen the laces beyond where I'm comfortable with to get them on and off. A pair of Lock Laces solved this issue for me, and now they go on using a shoe horn and slip off by hand without fidgeting with the laces if I don't want to. Aside from that, they are comfortable to wear, seem very durable and are keeping my wheels at a very comfortable temperature, with or without socks. That they are waterproof is a real plus! Being able to run the power washer without throwing on a pair of boots and having dry feet throughout is wonderful!
