"I purchased these with low expectations to be honest, I have had some awesome boots (lowa goretex) which had worn out (after 8 years everyday I'm not surprised) and got a pair promising waterproof and toe capped etc they leaked first sign of water. These however have been tested well over the last few weeks since I got them with muddy wet walks with the dogs and working in them everyday they have forded streams and sunk in boggy mud and my feet have remained dry and comfortable. Good work Screwfix/Site. I have only given 3 for reliability as I have not had them long really. would recommend"
