Hi Carl! Looked at the Cheaney thread and saw you purchased a pair of Jackie chukkas - well done on getting that great deal! I was looking into getting the same pair, but was wondering how they fare in rainy weather as I intend to mainly use them for rainy days (vs leather-sole dress shoes). Hoping you've had a chance, intentionally or otherwise, to test them in wet weather. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
