Ordered these as a pair of all-rounders for the countryside I work on as a retired guy. I wanted something I could use to work around the ranch and to take my hound for walks down the road. These were a fail. The big reason was absolutely no arch support whatsoever and the rest of the boot just was very cheaply made and disappointing. I wasn't expecting a home-run at the price but I might as well have strapped on the box they came in as that would have been as comfortable. Zappos once again made it painless to return and these bargain hikers need to be D/Ced asap. Won't go to hi-tec again probably.

LOVE! This was my very first purchase from Zappos. I have very hard to fit, flat feet, and I was very hesitant about ordering shoes online. I needed a pair of waterproof hiking boots for my annual trip to South Western Utah. These boots fit to size, are extremely comfortable, and I had no problems with blisters. I only wore the shoes inside the house, until my vacation last week. I hiked 4 to 10 miles per day and these were the most comfortable shoes I think I have ever owned.

I was surprised to find such a nice sandal for this price! I like everything about it, especially the way the straps cross at the great toe -- no pressure on the bunion area! The back straps are slightly loose for me as I have a narrow heel but I can glue in a piece of foam if this becomes an issue over time. Perhaps this looser fit will prevent the stitching from coming apart.

I used to wear Hi-Tec years ago before switching to Merrell, This was a great price and thought I would give the brand another try. As usual the shipping time is always superb with Zappos, I got the shoes the next day and tried them on, they have no padding internally and I felt like I was wearing the box more than a pair of shoes. The real downside for this is that I don't even walk, I am in a wheelchair, and the shoes hurt around the toe areas. I took them off and put my hand up inside and there is no padding, just a hard surface. I suppose they could be useful with heavy or double socks.

These are great hiking boots. I was super worried about ordering them without trying them on but took a chance based on other reviews and am so glad that I did. They are reasonably priced, super comfortable, and have great traction. I did a hike on rocks at the coast that had some algae issues and was pleasantly surprised by the grip.

I've had these boots for three years. Although I only wear them maybe 10 days a year, they are great. I wear them in the rain and snow. Stays dry and warm. Only problem I have is that they seem to come untied if not double knotted.

Very warm and very comfortable. I live in a cold, snowy environment and these are the warmest boots I've ever owned. Plus they're cute!

I really like the looks of these boots, and I liked the fact that they are supposed to be warm, but how in the world do you get them on? I don't have an unusually big or wide foot, but I couldn't get my foot in the boot at all. It doesn't really open up or have a zipper or a "tongue" on the boot that lets you get your foot in. I'm disappointed. I don't know how to rate it. It looks like a great boot, but it won't work for me.

This series of boots run really small. Maybe two sizes too small. I normally wear a size 9½-10. I first bought a pair size in 10, that was way too small, I sent it back and then got a size 11 which is still too small. I am going to go with another style of boots. These boots are really comfortable and soft but just too small.

I love these boots! So glad I chose them. :-) They are well cushioned and very comfortable from the get-go. The outer leather is stiff and will need to be broken in, but I think that is a good thing: this boot is molding to my foot. I needed a little more cushioning on the bone on the outside of my ankle -- a regular hiking sock took care of that. I also like the color - pretty, but not so cute that I will cry the first time I get mud on them. I also love that I can lace up the top two hooks like my skates. And thanks, Zappos, for the quick delivery!

Yuck! Sending them back. Flat. No arch. When did they think it was cool to slant the top so bad? Rubs on the front of leg, while the back low and open.

I had these shoes for seven years. I wore them at work for two summers straight, I would throw them on for quick errand runs around town, and I took them traveling from Alaska to Antarctica and everywhere in between. They held up great. The reason that I got rid of them was that the rubber sole started getting a little worn (after seven years who can blame them) and I did not have room in my luggage to bring them home from Nepal. I came online to buy a new replacement pair, and I have already started breaking them in!

Cool and light weight. Sole is made from a sturdy material that grips well. There is a lot of cushion in the boot so it fits small. Had to return the boots due to that.

When our rains of Monsoon ease into the most beautiful snows of winter (your summer), my Hi-Tec Logan WPs are with me. My feet are happy; my heart is happy. On a recent journey to Lhasa, the path was true, my soles loyal, my pneuma enlightened. Entreaties to you Zappotistas for delivering with haste, dependable as the Southern Cross.

These are narrowly made, even the WW version. I tried going up a 1/2 size, still not good. They are good looking otherwise, but too narrow for a wider foot.

These look very cute in the photos, but in larger sizes (I ordered a 10) they just aren't cute at all. They're long and narrow and the toe part looks huge...the "chunky" factor is only in smaller sizes. They're heavy and stiff and clunky. Too bad, because the look of the fleece is awesome.

We are having such a hard time finding the right size for my son (age 11) who is sandwiched between the boys/men sizes. This is a fabulous boot, lovely quality, but unfortunately this size 8 was too tight.

I bought these boots for my daughter. As a college student, she is doing a lot of walking around campus and too and from the light railway in Minnesota. She absolutely loves these boots. They are warm, are good walking through snow and icy sidewalks and aren't clunky looking for a snow boot. I would like a pair myself. I consider getting these boots a half size larger considering thick socks, but got her regular size 9. They fit great.

Very comfortable boot I use to walk to train every day. Had to go half size up for fitting purposes.

Bought these for my 13-year-old, who isn't into wearing chunky winter boots anymore, but still goes out for recess and walks home from school throughout the winter. These boots are a good compromise, as they make me happy by protecting from cold and snow, but are acceptable to him appearance-wise.
