Your boots are a practical waterproof, fashionable recreational product, the main use is as a walking country boot, walking through puddles , streams and muddy fields are all fine , you can use them for limited recreational riding but they are not meant as a alternative to heavy duty muck out stable boots or full riding boots . They are also not meant as farm boots or other waterproof footwear like rubber wellingtons (in other words continually submerged in water), if used for these purposes the warranty is void. All membrane footwear will leak in time if submerged so it is important to understand how the product works – walking through water is OK , standing in water is not.
Traditional Waxed Coats & Jackets
Traditional waxed cotton clothing is not membraned so these are sold as water resistant not waterproof . The waxed fabric is waterproof when it is new but where the coat is stitched it may let in moisture (see care instructions) .
The nature of waxed cotton is the it will fade and lose its wax coating as it is worn . You will find that you may want to rewax the the areas of the coat which show the signs of abrasive wear & tear the earliest eg. sleeve creases and shoulder seams
Unless you have purchased a waterproof membraned coat it is not guaranteed waterproof , only water resitant.
