    How waterproof are they? Is it the Red Wing waterproofing or Gore-Tex?

    I like gore-tex because I can stand in puddles all day, deal with rain all day, etc. and still have dry feet. A lot of gore-tex knock-offs aren't up to that task.

    I usually wear basketball shoes. I would much rather wear something else, but I am 6 foot 8 and wear a size 17 so I don't have many options.

    Wow hmmm those look nice.

    I just bought a pair of New Balance waterproof 965 hiking shoes off eBay as this was my first pair starting out & overall they produced a very comfortable fit, were super efficient, so light weight and lasted a good 9 months with heavy use.

    Merrell Reflex hiking boots. No other boot have I had that can take a beating while still being comfortable enough to walk in. Steel toe suck unless your in heavy landscaping/hardscapes.
