I love how my feet never get wet in puddles, snow and slush (living in the north in November is a hard time to keep dry feet). The no shoe lace design is great especially since I’m always on the go. I wear them to work, around town, gym time, and I’m sure I could use them hiking. The snug design hasn’t failed me yet and I never have to worry about them coming loose and falling off. It is sometimes a tad tight, wearing thin socks fixed the issue for the most part and my only slight issue is when I’m walking from outside in the wry to inside on linoleum I squeak every time I take a step until they dry (10-15 min?) I assume from the water repellant technology. Overall would rate 9/10 and would buy again.
