I really love how these hiking boots look. I've only had them for a month, but I took them on a long camping trip with many many miles of hiking up and down mountains and they worked great. I have really pointy heels and always get blisters on them, no matter what shoes I'm wearing, so I was hoping these would be different, but I got blisters with these too. I just started putting duct tape on my heels every time we hiked and then I didn't get anymore blisters. So I'm pretty sure other people won't have the same issues...my feet are just weird. I would recommend these shoes. They kept my feet warm and dry when hiking through cold wet puddles and were sturdy and worked great!

Excellent shoe/boot. Have worn them for a couple of weeks now, and they feel the same every time I put them on. I would buy this style and brand again.

So far I like the over all look and fit and that they are supposed to be water proof. But due to the fact that I ordered them in the summer to wear in the winter I haven't actually had a chance to wear them yet. Also because I only wanted them to wear as a winter shoe, not for hiking, so I like that the tread isn't so large and chunky looking.

Nice boot but was too short. I ordered a 10 -- need 10-1/2 and I can only get an 11 which will be too big for me.

Well made boot, sturdy, supportive, good fit, cradles the foot without binding it. Stiff at first and requires breaking in--not unusual in an all-leather upper. There's a design flaw, however, but one which can be and was handled at home with needle nose pliers. Don't know if it is because I'm a woman and didn't have the patience or toughness to have the outside of my ankle worn to a nubbin while the boot softened up, or if the 1/2 inch long stamped medal "nameplate" inserted at the crease of the boot's ankle was hammered in at the wrong place. No matter, the shank of thing created constant friction and a sore. Popped it off easily and all is well now.

Shoes fit well and are comfortable; however, after less then two months of moderate use the soles of the shoe have started to fall apart and holes have formed allowing water to enter the shoe. These shoes wear really quickly.

I got these shoes because I had a toe injury and could not wear closed toe shoes. These shoes are a godsend! They are comfortable enough to wear all day. I can hike, wade through water and even ride my bike. They are a great value for the money.

These are a great fit and very comfortable for hiking. I love the steel eyelets because they won't break when tying these boots like the cloth ones. These boots are made very well.

After reading so many 5-star reviews for these sandals, I felt like I couldn't go wrong. Well, they're definitely not 5-star sandals for me. I was really counting on a super-comfy, cushy footbed but find it a bit too firm for my liking. I also don't particularly care for the Velcro strap that goes over the top of my foot. It doesn't hit in quite the right place. I think I just have really weird feet!

I love and have been wearing Hi-Tec boots for years, but only the ones with the steel shank work for me. Can't find them anymore. These are too flexible in the forefoot -- had to return them.

These shoes are true to size. The only thing to mention is that when I first got them and wore them around the city without my hiking socks (to try and break them in before a hike). It gave me bruises where the top of the boot meets the ankle. However, I wore it with hiking socks later on multiple hikes and they were super comfortable, so maybe they just needed to be worn with the right socks and get broken into. Super light for hiking boots.

I have always liked Hi-Tec, inexpensive, comfortable and these are water-proof. I doubt they'd be good for really tough backpacking, but for an all-around shoe for light hiking/everyday, they do fine.

Need to be broken in, seemed wider/ larger to size, if you have narrow feet. These are also pretty heavy, but again, I'll have to give them some more time.

These boots worked great, I got them for a backpacking trip to Lassen for 7 days and they were super comfortable, not one single blister after 75+ miles of trail, make sure to wear thick wool socks and a thin under liner, for any boot that you decide to buy. These boots developed a tiny hole at the upper front of the boot where two pieces of material come together, but besides that a great boot. Also the width felt very true to size. I have wide feet and other boots that I have bought in wide sizes left my feet in pain.

Shoes looked cute but were too narrow and my little toe stuck out. Also, the worst part, was that the strap that would not adjust hurt the top of my foot. I have a very high instep.

These sandals are the bomb. I normally just use them for camping and fishing in Georgia, but most recently was in Maui on an unexpectedly difficult hike in the rain at O'heo gorge up to Waimoku falls. Had to stop and tighten the straps, but they delivered me through some scary (crazy cliffs nearby) trekking straight up the mountain for 2 miles. Just purchased another pair for my daughter in hopes that I can get her to hang with Mom on some adventures! Other than a rock concert. Kudos to hi-tech!

The front straps are not adjustable and are a little wide. I needed sandals quickly for a last minute trip, or I might have returned these because of the wide width. They are fairly comfortable for walking. Bought a different brand while traveling which has all adjustable straps & I like that fit better.

This is a horrible shoe. My husband wore these for less than 3 months and one of the lace holders already ripped off so the boots are useless. Never buying this brand again!

Excellent comfort, support and style. Wore these for 16 days straight right out of the box working music festivals. I estimate these boots walked about 500 miles in mountainous terrain and varying weather conditions within their first two weeks. They owe me nothing and they're still only a few weeks old. Felt snug at first, but wore in to a perfect fit after only a few hours.

Hiking in Grand Tetons and Yellowstone Parks. Boots are very comfortable and good traction for climbing.

Surprisingly too large given that I ordered a very similar sandal from the same company and that one was fine. The toe straps were too loose. Since I'm a 5, I can't size down. Returned.
