    Comments about ALPINE DESIGN Men's Switchback Hiking Boots:

    I just got these boots last week.
    This past weekend I wore them for a day hike to try out. Trails were partially wet and muddy. After walking about 3-4 hours, I realized that my socks around toes became slightly wet. I also noticed that the soles were already showing visible wear.
    This morning, I wore them to work. It was raining. After walking about 20 minutes in rain, I reached my office, the leather became soggy wet and the socks around my toes are completely wet.
    When I touch the inside of the boots, it is all wet except ankle area.

    The boots look great with real leather and also are comfortable. The price was great too. The problem is that the description says and the tag of the boots says "water proof" but reality not.
    These are probably good for casual use in dry weather and easy hiking trail without rocky surface.
