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.

Returned: The toe strap is sadly way too far towards the toe and cuts diagonally. My smallest toe ends up not being under/past the strap - big problem. The middle crossed straps were too tight (and can't adjust). Otherwise, they were true to size, nice colors, and had arch support.

I love these shoes! They look elegant on top but have a comfortable, sport-type bottom. The two adjustable velcro straps mean you can get them to fit right for your feet. They run wide, which is good for my feet.

These shoes are a godsend for my 9-year old daughter, who has wide feet and a high instep. I can't tell you how many sandals I have tried, to no avail. Not even Tevas or Chacos fit her. So frustrating and sad when you go store to store, website to website, and can not find something to fit your little girl. Thankfully we are at the point where she can wear a size 5 in women's shoes. Even though these ones are not marked as wide width, they fit her perfectly. I can actually buy her true shoe size rather than going up a size or two.

These are great boots, they are light weight enough to not wipe you out wearing them, but tough enough to handle serious hiking. I wore them on a 9 hour trek in Norway and had no problems.

The soles have worn through at about 8 months. Shame as the rest of the boot is still in fine shape and they were very comfortable. I'm not an avid hiker and used them mainly at work with minimal abuse. Purchased in October to replace a pair of Altitudes and was expecting similar durability. I got a couple years out of the Altitudes.
