Finally found a shoe that fits my foot!

Shoe is perfect for what the description says.. keeping your feet warm and waterproof. I typically use these shoes for everyday use, and after a day of running errands I don't have the foot and back pain I normally had before these shoes. I tried many different brands of shoes, and none of them fit my foot as well as these. Overall, very happy with these shoes and definitely going to purchase more!

Great shoe

Bought these for my husband and he really likes them. They were comfortable right away. We like them a lot better than his previous barefoot shoes from Xero shoes.!

Fantastic All-Weather Leather Shoes

These shoes look and feel excellent wherever you choose to use them (except for mud; they are Firm Ground shoes, after all!). Additionally, the shoes have a sock-like attachment that wraps around your ankle, which is great for comfort, heat retention, and keeping bits out of the shoe. This feature can make the shoes a little difficult to put on at first, but the trick is to start putting the shoe on sideways, and once half of your foot is in you can re-orient the shoe as normal, grab the tabs, and pull the shoe onto your foot.

The part of the shoe that meets the back of your ankle (at your Achilles) can be slightly abrasive at first, but it goes away after a while. If it's too much for you, just wear moleskin for the first few miles/kilometers of wear. Additionally, make sure that you're lacing the shoes properly (not too loose, not too tight!).

Both the base insole and removable thermal insole can be a little abrasive at the ball of the foot, so make sure you clean the interior of the shoe (or the thermal insole) every 2-3 months if you're sockless. They're not so abrasive that it causes a problem, there can just be some odor issues if the shoes aren't cleaned at regular intervals.

I think that's about it! This is a genuinely phenomenal shoe that looks, feels, and performs great no matter how you use them. The minor abrasion issues aren't worth taking off a full point, so I'm giving them 4.5 of 5 (rounding up because the Ratings only support integers!).
