I bought these boots about 3 years ago for cold weather paddling and they are still in great condition. They keep my feet dry and therefore warm up to just below the knees and are not so big and bulky that they cause problems inside the boat. There is a plastic shim in the insole that protects my feet from oyster beads and sharp limestone rocks. They are just about perfect for me but I can only give it a 4 since they are only available in men's sizes which are wide for most women's feet.
So far the socks have been dry and clean. However the protection is only good as long as you don’t step into water deeper than the boot is high. If you find yourself swimming, these boots provide an additional layer of thermal protection. The strap that goes over the top of the foot helps keep the boot in place, and I did not find my feet sliding around inside the boot when walking either up hill or down. I’ll be using these boots even when I transition from the dry suit to a wet suit, the boots are that comfortable. I would give these boots a rating of ten.
