Arriba Mid GORE-TEX® XCR® (unisex)
I bought these boots last week and they are very comfortable I wore them for a couple of short walks and they were great Then today I thought I would test out the waterproof quality as its raining steadily here I went for a 1 hour road walk and wore short gaiters so the rain wouldnt get into my sock tops 30 mins in my feet were lovely and snug and warm even though I went through a few puddles 40mins in I thought I could feel a bit of water getting in 45 mins in I might as well have been wearing sandals - as I walked I could see water squirting out of the boots at the side of the laces and my feet were swimming When I got home I poured out a good 50ml water out of each boot plus I had to wring my socks out Really really dissapointing - I own much cheaper boots that would perform much better I am so thankfull I wasnt on a full day hike! I will be returning the boots
