This is the first time I bought shoes of these type. I bought them to specifically walk out to my garden without getting my feet wet. I didn’t think they would be very good. They have proven to be very grippy water proof shoe and exceeded my expectations. For the price they are very good you’re not going to go running through your lawn wearing theses shoes but they are grippy in slick environments and water resistant. Also very comfortable so very much worth the cost. Highly recommend.
