Two thumbs up
They are comfy and they stay on my feet well. I thought they could use a little more heel padding. I’m on my feet all day, but switching to my after work shoes I realized just how comfy the vessis were! They are wonderfully waterproof; after puddles and snow my socks are as dry as can be. My only qualm is that the laces squeak against the shoe when I walk if I tie them too tight. I would buy these again and again, especially since they are so good ethically.
One reason for the noise could be the suede lace cage rubbing against the upper knit, for that you could try a touch of WD-40 between them to help with friction. Also, hockey tape might work for that too. Hope this helps!
