I have bought numerous "water" shoes before and all have deteriorated after a few wears. I have not had them long, but they feel good. I mostly wade fish in the bays, so muck and sand are always an issue. Sand still gets in them, but it is easy to pull off and shake off. They fit a bit loose because I could not get a half size, but they did not get stuck in the muck on the way into and out. I did tighten them a bit and I have considered removing the existing lace and simply adding the usual lace. I don't know how long they'll last, but for now they are better than what I've had.
Maybe I can give a better review at a later date.
Pros:They don't retain water, so I leave them on until I get home.
They are decent looking, so they don't look out of place even when you're not fishing.
Cons:I could not get a half size.
I am not fond of the lacing, so I may eventually change to a usual lace.
