You know, I have tried over 5 different waterproof boots but none fit. Finally, I found this pair and thought I would take a chance with them since there were great reviews, even though they were expensive. They fit perfectly. I was so thrilled. I have worn them a few times a week while doing work in the garden. I haven't had these that long. I noticed suddenly my left foot started aching really bad in the heel area. I looked and there is a part that fell off the boot!! Apparently the boots are not molded with one piece. There is an insert on the bottom under both the heel and ball of the foot for traction. the Heel completely fell off and the ball is starting to. Now I have to find another pair of boots. It's terrible. I'm out about 45 dollars and am in the same situation I was in before I bought these.
