Yeah shoes that soak up 10lbs of water and take forever to dry are just a pain.  I also find with my trail Cross GTX that my feet still get pretty wet unless I have pants on that really stay properly "overlapped" over the cuffs of the shoe.  Obviously rain will come in the top and especially if your socks are longer than the shoes (I actually need to try getting some "no show" super short socks) they'll wick water straight in, so using waterproof shoes with shorts is mostly pointless for me. The trailcross GTX have super stiff and super grippy soles which doesn't work for me, I can't feel the pedal or locate my feet properly.  I just ordered some of the Fizik Nanuk GTX flats which are more like boots and I am hoping will actually play double duty as winter boots when taking the kids tobogganing and such.  I had some fixik shoes previously which were awesome but slightly too small (apparently common to have to size up with fizik). I sized up this time so should be interesting. They are expensive but especially if they double duty for snow days with kids I'll get a lot of use out of them.
