    Yes
    i got a pair
    keep mine for dry days only as they hav never been much use in the wet, did try alsorts of reproofing gear to see if it made a difference, in reality as soon as it started to rub of in the wet grass or crops i got wet
    shame really as they are a great boot to wear just not waterproof

    I know mouflon plus are generally not liked here but I have never had wet feet. They are not worn professionaly nor every day, but they are worn for stalking, rough shooting, dog walking and fishing. Last summer as I had forgotton my waders when fishing in Ireland where the piers did not reach the bank, I had to paddle out to the staging many times a day for 3 days to within an inch of the top of the boot and not a damp foot in site.

The salesman in the shop reckons there great thou, and the shop i got mine from also sell the mouflon's. Can u not try to send them back again or get a pair off seal skinz socks
