I purchased the Cloudventure Waterproof Shoe for trips to Colorado and Ireland. I wanted a waterproof trail shoe that could also look nice off the trail. In moderate weather the shoes remained waterproof. However on each trip my feet got wet, potentially from too much rain. The problem in Ireland was that once the shoe became wet it took forever to dry in the damp conditions. I had to hike in my secondary shoes to allow for dry time. Overall, the shoe is springy and handles a variety of terrain from snow and streams and rocks and boulders. Next trip I will wear my hiking boot instead to give better support and better waterproof ability since water doesn't pool in from my pants.
