The shoes are comfortable and seem to be all I expected. After wearing these shoes for several months, I am even more impressed with them. My son and I were planting trees in his mud hole of a back yard. My Kujos were covered with mud and water inside and out. We finished for the day, I sprayed them down inside and out with plain water, let them dry for a few days and they are like new. One comment, the heel tab should be a little bigger for a man's hand and stitched more firmly.
