I've never gotten wet feet while wearing leather shoes, even in my half a mile walk home in the rain. Waterproof is on the absolute bottom of my list of requirements for footwear. I don't really understand the need for it unless you are literally walking in a river deeper than your ankles.

One day, just maybe one day, I'll get round to doing some shoe photos for this thread.
After the AS, C&J, Churchs, Cheany, etc - with some Dainite, I'll do a page of "special purpose(waterproof)".
Some old Davos vibram boots for climbing, some Alt-Berg boots for motorcycling, and some Dubarry sailing boots for ocean racing.
