Highly recommend: Teva Delavina boots

I'm just back from Ireland and the saving grace of my trip was these boots. They are stylish leather boots that come in ankle and midcalf heights. (I had the former, in black.) In Ireland, there were short periods of rain (sometimes, downpours) every day and my feet stayed dry. They're also comfortable to walk I'm, including on inclines, and they have a lugged sole.

I got mine from Amazon, though other retailers likely have them. I didn't need a breaking-in period asnthey fit perfectly right out of the box (and that's not typical for me). If you're looking for a boot that's comfy for daytime and looks good for going out to dinner, these definitely fit the bill.

They are great boots. I have three pair. I like that the foot bed is removable so I can insert my own.

I love them too! I heard about them on this forum and ordered three pair five weeks ago. Have tried to wear my knee length black ones as much as possible in order to break them in for our My Way Alpine Tour beginning on 9/21, but in the Minnesota heat it's not been very practical or comfortable. Noticed a bit of rubbing on my left heel, so put a moleskin strip on and it solved the problem before it had a chance to blister. It's always a good idea to bring moleskin and now I will bring several packets of it pre-cut to fit the heal areas. They really do like nice with everything - jeans, leggings, skirts.

I bought these boots in gunsmoke grey for my Scandinavia trip. I did break them in with 2 five mile walks. They are nice looking, waterproof and provide great ankle support. I walked 100 miles on my trip and they still look new. I also heard about them on this forum.

I watched REI and two years ago they had the tall boots on sale for $90. I got a pair in Burgundy with grey fabric down the back. I sprayed more waterproofing on them before we went to Amsterdam. On our night cruise, a whole glass of gluhwein (red spiced wine) got spilled down the back of my legs all over the grey parts. Cleaned right up with a damp rag. I was really surprised as I figured they were ruined.
