I recently changed my routine from afternoon hikes & started early morning hikes instead to avoid the heat. To my surprise my "WATERPROOF" boots had my feet soaked within minutes of walking in the morning dewed grass. I was literally at a loss for words and miserable as I continued. That same day, I made tons of mental excuses for Timberland, as to why my boots were not really waterproof. So after much debate, I regretfully continued my blind loyalty and ordered another pair, this time I got the "Chocorua Trail Gore-Tex Mid Hiking Boot" mainly because they are said to be GORE-TEX. I know from my full military career that Gore-Tex is great and has never let me down in 20+ years, so I felt like this was a safe purchase.
The shipping came promptly, as majority of Prime packages do, and the boots looked nice out of the box. Next morning, I laced them up, and hit the trail for a light "break in" hike. About a mile in, I felt really glad that I made the switch from my "Timberland White Ledge Men's Waterproof Boot" (which I also bought on Amazon) simply labeled "waterproof" to the obviously superior "Gor-Tex.” Unfortunately the joy was very short lived. Less than half a mile later, I could feel the water on my toes. Extremely disappointed at this time I just stopped, took the pic that you see and filmed a bit of the hike just for the sake of this review. I can’t believe I’ve been screwed by such an established company.
Once I got home, I took a few pictures, dusted the grass off of the boots and left them to dry next to the other Timberland failures. The next morning the boots had turned a very dusty brown color, just from being exposed to that small amount of water. I have never saw that happen with my other ones. That strange occurrence was just more insult to injury. Obviously, I have requested a return for the “Gor-Tex" boots. I wish there was a way to get my money back on the first two pair of boots as well. I missed the 30 day window. If this only happened to one pair, or model, I probably would have continued making excuses for Timberland. At this point, I cannot believe that any of these shoes are made with the material that they are advertised.
To Be Clear: I ordered 3 different pair of Timberland's, all allegedly waterproof and NONE held up to the basic morning dew in the field that I hike (which can be seen in the video attached.)

Please feel free to give me some recommendations for boots that will handle my small demands. Thanks for your time!
These are really nice boots and surprisingly light at 1lb 7oz each. That may sound heavy, but for the size I wear, these are light. I really wanted the brown/green, but the all black boots look very nice. My feet vanish in black and I wear them with jeans no problem. They are comfortable to wear, but you do need to think about socks. These boots, being water tight up to the top of your foot, don't breathe well. If you are wearing them in 68° or warmer weather, you will want very thin socks. The boots are comfortable in thick or thin socks. They wear well and comfortably around town as well as romping in the woods.
One odd thing. The boots I got have different length laces. The left foot has 72" laces and the right foot as 63" laces. 63" is too short for these boots. Strange.
I went on the 8 mile hike and they were amazing. Very comfortable, great ankle support, great grip. I'm of the old school way of thinking that you have to break in a pair of boots before you take them on a long hike. Not necessary here. They were good to go right out of the box. I will clean them and hit them with some more waterproofing spray (because I like them to be well treated). I'm very happy with these and I hope that they last a long time.
