In order to find out if the shoes were truly ~waterproof,~ we had three people try them on:

We had a series of spill tests ready to see how much the shoes could really withstand (because just water is boring!)

Could the shoes survive all three?!

Could the shoes survive all three?!

The first test was easy: water.

And the shoes passed with flying colors!

All three testers found that the shoes felt very sturdy, and were already impressed by how well the shoes were performing their waterproof duties.

But could the shoes survive the second round, this time with Coca-Cola?

Kevin J. Nguyen

Yup. The shoes were still dry AF.

When the Coca-Cola was wiped off, the shoes STILL looked BRAND SPANKING NEW, although they smelled a little like soda.

And last but not least, the FINAL ROUND...

And wow oh wow, the shoes were still completely dry.

Everyone was completely convinced after subjecting their new shoes to some muddy water that the shoes were indeed, completely waterproof.

Overall rating? 3.5/5.

Sara: I liked how warm they were: definitely good for snow and rain on a cold day, but they were a little too snug! They’re pretty much a scuba material sock inside of a rubber converse and a little too bulky in my opinion. But if you’re really into Converse and need some heavy duty boots, these will probably satisfy you.Niki: The shoes are cool in general. They are a little clunky and while waterproof-ness is nice, they can still be stained. It’s not like a HUGE deal but like, ok.Zack: I really love the comfort and quality of these! Didn’t expect them to work so well. If they didn’t look like weird moon boots I would totally buy a pair!
