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.

Extremely comfortable shoe; well made and sturdy! I am a jeep owner and trail ride often, these have made moving through the woods easier on my feet and ankles with their support. They rinsed off well from the mud, but I didn't saturate them - not sure how the leather will hold (need to confirm waterproof?) I'd rate a 5 out of 5 for sturdiness, comfort and good looking shoes!

Looks like a very well put together boot. Have not tried it yet in the snow and slush to see how waterproof it is. I wear a 11 in casual shoes and 11.5 in athletic shoes. Called Zappos and was advised to buy an 11.5, came in and it was tight, so I exchanged it for a 12. Seems to fit.

These provide good support. They are short, though. My long toes hang off the end. They look nice on the feet.

These are really cute, warm, and comfortable boots! I hover between 9 - 9½, but I ended up buying a size 10. I can wear heavy socks and they are perfect. I also put in a pair of Uggs shearling insoles for extra warmth and coziness. I am very happy with these boots!

I have not tried these in the snow... but I did try them on & they are light and super comfy - I am usually and 8.5-9 and I ordered a 9 and they fit great with enough room for thick socks - I LOVE the stylish look ad cant wait to wear them!

They work great and keep my feet dry. They really need to be broken in, they give some really bad blisters so get them worn in before going on a serious hike and have some mole skin!

My old Altitude IV's were great. I wear a Women 8 Wide. Hi Tec no longer makes this boot for women. Luckily, a Men's 7 is the same as a Women 8 Wide and really it is. They feel the same on my feet as my old pair of Women 8 Wide. I have bunions and this boot is wide enough for the bunions yet has a good fit around the ankle. So, women, if you typically need a wide boot, try this in a Mens size -- call Hi-Tec and they will tell you what size in a Men Altitude IV will be the same as your Women Wide size. The other styles of HiTec boots that do come in Women Wide are not as comfortable as the Altitude IV. I'm happy wearing a Mens size to get the Altitude IV, it's width, and its comfort. My old Altitude IV boots are still good - except for the edges of the sole that I have worn down from lots of hiking. I liked this boot enough to buy a second pair.

These shoes are great! Comfortable from the get go. Don't be fooled by the reasonable price - I've worn Hi Tec before and they're just as good as the more expensive brands.

I got these the day before leaving for a month hiking and adventuring around New Zealand. They were comfortable right out of the box and held up with no problem. Great set of hikers and looked good enough to wear around town as well.

Love to wear these boots for walking to work in the winter. My feet don't overheat during the work day and I don't have to bring another pair of shoes to change into. My feet are warm and dry. Minimal support and have stiff soles. Had a similar pair of these Hi-tec boots that lasted through three Michigan winters before rusting and losing waterproofing. Typically wear a 7.5 (Asics, Merrel, Teva, TNF) but the size 7 of these boots fits well

I bought this shoe in November for a trip to North Carolina in January so I was holding off on writing a review until I had a chance to really put them to the test. These boots are fantastic! Extremely comfortable and the wide width is perfect for my wide feet. They also have excellent grip in muddy, slippery conditions. I actually wasn't sure if I'd be able to do any hiking due to a foot injury a few weeks prior to my trip but I was able to hike just fine with almost no foot pain with these boots, I'm not kidding. I love them.

I returned these. The inner part of the boot felt like it was becoming unglued from the outer part near the ankle. It was bunching up oddly. I also could feel the seam from the white stitching that goes up around the heel. This bothered me wearing medium weight socks. these felt like a true size 9.
