Rob Smith takes a look at the Inesis Mens Grip Waterproof shoe and is impressed with what he finds
Inesis Mens Grip Waterproof Shoe
Testing a waterproof shoe during this Spring’s extended dry weather makes it difficult to testify personally to this particular aspect of their performance, but having conducted our own Heath Robinson experiments with a garden spray, they can certainly be given the thumbs up!
In this regard, they also receive very positive reports and reviews from those who have been lucky enough, or perhaps unlucky enough, to wear them while playing in the rain.

Aside from this, there are three key aspects to how satisfied anyone will be with such a shoe; their looks, their comfort and their grip.
With regard to the first of these, the shoe comes in a variety of colour mixes with something for those who like to make a statement as well as those who prefer a more subtle look.
The modern styling of the uppers is very smart indeed, and this was agreed by all playing partners while testing these shoes.

Where the sole joins the uppers is perhaps a little more debatable.
Depending on the colour scheme, they can appear a little thick/clumpy.
The upside of this is that this makes them very comfortable to wear.
Early impressions were that the top of one of the uppers was rubbing a little and might cause a blister.
This soon wore off as they softened and they were subsequently very comfortable.
As time wore on, it became easy to forget that these were fresh out of the box; they felt fully worn in very quickly.
Wearing them a second time, they felt even more comfortable. Since then, they have felt very good, well cushioned and a pleasure to wear.
With regard to their performance, and specifically the grip, the Inesis shoes from Decathlon coped very well despite the firm playing surfaces we have enjoyed this Spring.
In conclusion, the Inesis Mens Grip Waterproof Shoe is a perfectly decent and very comfortable waterproof shoe, especially for such a very reasonable price.
PS – Almost immediately after this review was published, the weather changed.
The shoes passed the waterproof test with flying colours.
This budget waterproof shoe is terrific value for money. It is ideal for players of every standard from complete beginner to serious enthusiast looking for a reliable backup. It looks good, there is plenty of positive feedback regarding its waterproofness, and has a great deal going for it.
