Breaking in: Be careful. Don't lace these up on the first day and head out for 8 hours of work. If you do, you won't be able to wear them again for a couple of days your feet will be so sore! I often work half-days on Saturdays and this is when I break them in. I put them on without lacing at all tight. The new boots are so stiff they will not slip around. After about 3 half-days, I can go 8 hours, and I gradually begin to lace them tight. Once broken in, these boots are the most comfortable thing your feet will ever know. As 1 reviewer stated, they are indeed like slippers. I buy my Chippewas a half-size larger than normal, for what it's worth.
Not exactly water proof though. In rainy wet, muddy weather they are. But in standing water not so much. Winters when I stand at my truck there is often standing water/slush along the curb from the road salts melting the snow, and in these instances, the boots will take in water. Not a lot, but even a little cold water negates the insulation and woolen socks and the result is frozen feet. Without water intake, these boots have always been warm enough to handle anything RI winter dishes up. And despite the insulation, they are also never too warm during summers. This winter season I am going to try out their Arctic 50s and see how they do with the water. I am also going to try some Sno-Seal with them, which seems to be highly reviewed here.
A lot of guys I work with say they'd never pay this money for a pair of boots. Then they go through a couple pair every season and always have issues with their feet. Well, do the math and then think of all the comfort these boots provide. Even when it is time to throw a pair out, they are still as wonderfully comfortable as ever. And if you work in dry conditions mostly, no telling how long a pair could last for you. You may not like the price, but if you wear your boots every day, I swear if you give a pair of these a go, you'll not regret the investment.
