I purchased and used these shoes for my sole purpose of Riding around India for 8 continuous months and 24000 Kms; from snowy-winter to hot-summer to the rainy-monsoon. firstly the shoes lost their waterproof capability in my 4th month of riding in 15000 Kms. secondly they are very hot in summers, my feet were literally steamed. Soles are good but they don't last long. In cold winters(0'C) my fingers begin to get numb and I could feel the pain... Value for money is in doubt for these shoes & I wont recommend them... My replacement option would be a good pair of mountaineering-boots which come at the same price as well as have better safety features... I have the Simond and I would rate them better than the Icon 'waterproof' boots.
