VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS SHOE. LOVE STYLE AND FIT, BUT I HAVE ONLY WORN THEM TWO WEEKS AND THE LAST SHOE STRING HOOK/LOOP JUST BROKE OFF. VERY POOR QUALITY/DESIGN BECAUSE I WORK IN AN OFFICE... NOT EVEN IN A BAD ENVIRONMENT... AND ONLY 2 WEEKS.. REALLY? SINCE LOOP IS GONE NOW I CAN NOT TIE THE SHOES PROPERLY

I have a lot of problems with my feet. These good right out of the box. And I like the idea I can loosen the straps. I have a lot of Spurs on my right heel have not had to many issues.

I got a pair of these for free from Hi-Tec to review. I honestly like them and have put lots of miles on them on all sorts of terrain. They provide a solid footing and traction and the support is more than I have had from anything in the past. The break in period was a bit longer than other boots I have had in the past but now that they are settled in they feel great. Despite all these positives I would hesitate to buy them. They are more expensive compared to some other boots I have had in the past at a similar comfort/traction/support level that also lasted for about 2 years. if these last for 3, then we can talk.

Great shoe. Fit well right out of the box so I could walk my daily 10,000 steps without a problem. Only small issue is that they show dirt a little quicker than natural or dark colors.

My husband and son needed hiking boots for a Scouts outing. As my son is still growing, I didn't want to spend a lot of money. These boots were reasonable, came in widths and my son said they were very comfortable.

Well developed product. Fits good and comfortable. I bought another Hi Tech that I like even better (much to my surprise).

Comfortable, just not waterproof! Bought these shoes to walk dog in wet grass in the morning. They fit well and the first few months they were fine. However, in the last month, I come home with wet socks and cold toes on both feet. Not sure what happened. On rainy days, I have 3 pair of socks on my drying rack. I tried spraying with silicone, but same problem -- not waterproof. I'm very disappointed in this Hi-tec product. Wish I could get my money back. Now I need to find something else.

I haven't taken these out on the trails yet, but I will update my review once I have. So far, they fit well and are extremely lightweight (for hiking boots). Best of all, they are true to size.

These are super cute, sturdy and exactly what I was looking for in function and looks. However they definitely run small. I wear a 9.5 or a 10 in all shoes and ordered these in a 10. My toe was right up against the end so exchanging to a size up (no half size available).

I'm so disappointed! This shoe would probably be the right size if it wasn't designed so weird in the heel. Because the ankle strap angles forward, your heel doesn't naturally fit all the way at the back of the sole - there's a small gap. This, in turn, makes your toes hang off the front edge by that same amount. That's just not acceptable. The straps seemed like they would be comfy (although they didn't 'give' as much as I'd like, so they may cause blisters), but the sole seemed super soft and squishy. Too bad, but these are going back!

Good support, but a little less comfortable foot bed than I remember from my Hi-Tecs from years ago. I just wish they had the loop in the back to help you pull the boot on. A good boot for the lower price range.

Took these to go camping in Iceland. It rained the whole time. Forged streams and rivers in these. They stayed dry unless water toppled over the top. I loved these!!

I had to return these! They were so rough when I wore them hiking! Tore up my feet in two places! I do not suggest getting these. I gave them a 2 star for comfort because I thought they were comfortable when I first put them on. I gave them a 2star for style because I first thought they were so cute but the laces kept coming out of the boot (I had to tuck them in because they were so long!) and the hooks kept getting caught on the bushes. Also, the back of the boot that goes into the divots on the sides of your ankle....it rubs you raw there! This is a below average boot. You could maybe get away with wearing this for about two hours.

Very comfy with excellent support. I have an extremely high arches.. these shoes slip on easily, and support beautifully. No "break in time needed.

This was the second pair of hiking boots I ordered from Zappos. The return was easy and hassle free. This pair was just right after three 4 mile walks. Haven't tested the waterproof aspect yet.

Comfortable, but the front of my foot was going to slide to the outside even with the adjustment on the straps. I am a 8M and this was an 8M I am writing about. They run wide. I need something that I can walk really fast in, and this would give too much movement in my toes sliding to the outside.

These are very well made shoes. They are comfortable and feel nice. If I were to complain; the only thing negative is the actual weight. They do feel heavy. I think they should due to the very nature of the shoe.

I'm a woman, but bought the men's version of this hiking boot. Several reviews on the women's equivalent remarked on the narrow toe box, and I anticipated that would be an issue for me. Additionally, the men's boots are slightly less expensive. The boots are great out of the box. Enough room for inserts, and very stable foot bed. The upper is a little stiff, and wasn't tight around my ankle, so some pebbles got into my shoes the first time out. But I'm sure that will relax in time. All in all, these are a great pair of sturdy waterproof boots that didn't seem that heavy, even after a day of hiking.

These boots worked wonderfully! They were great to slip on after a long day of skiing, and my feet stayed warm in freezing weather. I was able to walk through snow and water without my feet getting wet. I would highly recommend these boots.

I absolutely love these boots. They are super warm, they look adorable and they are comfortable to wear. My only minor complaint is I wish they came in half sizes. They are a half size too big.

These boots ran small with the first pair I bought. I normally take a 10 but had to send those back for a 10½, which fit just right. These are comfortable out of the box.
