Lets start by saying that yes the boots look really nice, the have a look to them bit futuristic because of the synthetic materials and the shine that nylon gives. They are pretty waterproof for all kinds of puddles unless the go deep to your ankle.
The boots are quite breathable and they do dry fast, that's a characteristic in general of synthetic materials like nylon is they dry fast and absorb practically no water.
I use them for work in HVAC and they hold quite well and are light like a pair of sneakers which I find it as a nice feature since leather boots are generally heavier and you do feel them when going over all the ducts and pipes on the roof.
The ankle at first was quite stiff more than any other boot I've had but once broken in they are quite comfortable, took the same time to break in as my other leather boots and where more uncomfortable but surprisingly did not gave me any chaffing injuries like most of my other boots.
And in all quite good would recommend. Not for really hot climates but the same can be said for full closed leather boots.
