Reviewed by Andrew - 1st Dec, 2019 Not waterproof in toes (original and replacement pair) Bought these expecting good quality given the brand/price. The first pair gave me wet patches on my toes just walking 30 minutes along pavement through town in the rain and through a couple of puddles. These were well defined wet marks and not just sweat. After returning (which was very easy with Blacks) the replacement gave me the exact same issue in the same spot. Once the waterproof outer coating fails (which will happen) its almost as if theres a gap in the goretex insert which lets water in. My partner (in her 3 year old budget own-brand waterproof walking boots) had completely dry feet.
