Recieved these on a Thurs, wore them to ride/wear to work Fri. Very comfortable to spend the day in. Then Sat & Sun rode for 660 miles and they were great. Weather was between 50 & 85 & my feet were comfy the whole time. Great off the bike when we stopped to do this & that. Didn't encounter any wet weather so I'll find out later about the staying dry part, & thankfully no spills, so I'm going to say that by the way they feel, they'll be good in the event they are needed protection wise. The sole is a good thickness & eliminated alot of the vibration from the foot pegs. I got the grey/yellow. Nice combo of colors. I wear a women's 9/9.5 & originally order an 8, but they were just to roomy so I exchanged them (very painless process) & got a 7.5. They're fine with thin summer socks, and nice w/ a thicker sock for cooler months. My husband quized me on them our whole ride & will probably be ordering some for himself.
