Mens New Balance MT910GT Gor-Tex performance trail running shoe
MO1520GT Gor-Tex Hiking
I work for new balance so i prefer these. If you want a shoe that is completly waterproof it must have a waterproof membrane system ie Gor-Tex or eVent. Anything that simply says "waterproof" on the side means it was treated with a waterproof spray at the factory. It will stay waterproof for a couple months and then you will have to continue to spray or aplly wax to keep it waterproof. All Gor-Tex shoes are GARUNTEED WATERPROOF for the first year of ownership.
wore these all summer hiking. totally waterproof as long as the water doesnt go over the ankle. pretty comfy, i wore them on 20+ mile hikes and didnt have sore feet. they also look pretty good. hit me up if you need a coupon code for BC. after the coupon they're probably around 70 or so. when I first got them I went through a 2ft stream to see how waterproof they were. I tightend the laces up hard and made it about 1/4 way across before they flooded. took them off and dumped the water, wrang my socks out and they were good to go for the rest of the hike. didnt completly dry out untill a day later. for walking around campus you should be good.
The outside of the upper is made of a waterproof material in brown, with a bright blue liner for contrast. Four of the eyelets are white while the top is bright pink. The Airblaster logo also appears on a special tag along the upper’s side. These are available now at most Vans snowboarding dealers."
