As mentioned already the buckle is useless and the soles separate leaving you with wet feet. I wore mine for half a season before I had issue, but I hadn't used them in water until this particular day so the problem could have occurred sooner. I was on a two day hunt out of town and was crossing a creek on a cold morning approaching my stand. My left boot leaked enough water to soak my sock in the few steps it took to get across stream. I used a sealant to try a repair but it hasn't sealed them completely.

I saw many reviews of these boots and the most common complaints were the useless buckle on the cinch strap and the soles separating from the boot. I figured a few unlucky folk got bum boots but what are the chances I'll have the same problems? It turns out the answer is 100%. I knew the buckle was useless but that's not really a big concern. The soles peeling off after 4 uses was however. I decided to Shoo Goo them and see how they held up since I still had 25 days left on my 30 day store return policy. Well, I wore them today and had wet feet after fishing for 20 minutes. The sole peeling off was not causing it to leak and my fix held up just fine (Shoo Goo is an awesome multi-purpose sealant/adhesive), so I don't know where they're leaking. Don't care. Returning them tomorrow.
Please don't make the same mistake I did. If you read this or see other reviews telling you about the soles separating, please believe them. Don't waste your time and money on these boots.
