My co-worker and I were wearing leather boots which were soaked early on in the day. It was raining lightly today and the boots were waterlogged after walking in the wet grass applying the second round application. We were considering buying some rubber boots from Lesco to keep our feet dry. However, the rubber won't breath and we will still have wet feet, from the inside out. Another possibility is a gortex/leather combo, with some silicone applied to the leather for waterproofing. All leather boots are a PITA to break in, so we'd prefer a different idea. Appreciate knowing what works for you.
