I got the Timberland hi-cut one on sale too. My feet don't get wet even when i ride in the rain. Good in terms of toughness and water resistance, but I find Timberland soles are more slippery than other branded shoes, when on wet surfaces. My other Timberland boot had the same problem too. Also had got their sneakers and its more slippery than my Nike or Adidas, when on wet ground. Dry ground is ok.
