Good comfort/waterproofing, athlete’s foot, heel too high, oh my!

I really love how comfy these are. ASICS never seem to let me down in that department. From first slip-in, the shoes fit snug and glove-like. The waterproofing and warmth of these shoes are second to none. Therein lies the biggest caveat; do no wear these to the gym in summer. There is no wicking of moisture and when pulling your foot out, an unholy noise and sensation occurs, as if your foot is being born akin to how we humans experience it. I’ve not had athlete’s foot since I was a young chap, spending all day every day in rollerblades. I’ve yet to try these shoes running in the winter along the myriad trails here where I live, but I’m sure these shoes will pay dividends then. I’d like to give more stars, but one last quibble; the heel is too high and you must take care to not “topple” either side at the ankle; could imagine some spraining.
