They seem like a good idea for rain and certain activities like bike washing. I saw a lot of people on bikes around here wearing them with heavy wool socks this past winter. Certainly solves the problem of shoes that don't dry in between the morning and evening commute. As for kids, I imagine my mom would have loved these for my brother and me. She would have to wash our mud shoes 2-3 times a week at certain times of the year. Not fun.
"Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
