I purchased these shoes for cutting grass with my side hustle .I typically would use a pair of old beat up nikes,Redbox,or any running shoe I had that had been designated for the garage.Yesterday ,I cut two yard and with the moisture my mower was filled with clumps of grass.These shoes are very pricey and I never pay this much for new shoes ,especially yard work shoes. After I finished the job and had to wash down my mower deck I was about to walk in the house and as I removed my shoes MY Socks Were Completely DRY!!!!! . If you are on the fense of paying this much for shoes ,you should purchase.I had a discount code and saved a little .The shoes have held up with no rips or openings, I got one size larger because I have wide feet.Also it’s a must you wear longer socks as low cut ones will ride up when you wear the shoes. This is my honest review coming from a home owner with a full time job and part time lawn care hustle.
