I’ve never had “waterproof” live up to it's claims

Except for the old LL Bean rubber duck boot with leather upper. Those are the only waterproof boots I’ve ever owned that were genuinely and completely waterproof. And I ‘d never use them for hiking or any kind of hard use, since they’re not comfortable on lumpy or stony ground, or durable. They’re good for walking in ankle deep snow all day long though.

For actual hiking boots, I’ve tried Danner, Red Wing, Columbia, Solomon, Timberland, Keen and many others, and never found a boot that was really and truly waterproof.
