Even waterproof really isn't workproof, just water resistant. Just get some beeswax or aussie conditioner with beeswax and rub it on your boots and you'll get a good level of protection unless you decide to go wading and completely submerge the boot lol.

Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.

Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.

I'm literally looking for all day every day boots for work. I don't sit down behind a desk, I stand behind a counter all day long.
I think they are. I dont work as long as you in them, but I wear them a few hours every day and I've never had any problems. I've also worn them all day at a show and my feet were still happy at the end of the day. They are also paddock boots not tall boots so they're better for work.

I have little feet so mens boots aren't an option. My Ariats are a 7B.

I've got fantastic waterproofing stuff I think it's Driden

Glad to hear I'm not the only one finding this impossible

Anyone have experience with the Ariat Heritage IIIs? They have god reviews, I'm thinking about buying a pair.
