This is my 3rd pair of these boots so I can't recommend them highly enough. I have an unstable knee and these boots support my ankle which supports my knee. Actually a few years back I was walking 5 miles a day, wearing these boots, I lost 80 pounds! I was watching my calories too of course. Please Hi-Tec don't stop making these boots!

A fantastic buy. Wanted some hiking boots for a trip to Alaska and these were a great choice. I thought they'd take some breaking in but they were comfortable from step 1. We hiked a number of steep inclines and they made for stable and comfortable impact. Best buy I've made in a while.

sent to my nephew who has no car and these are his only means of transportation. He said they are "perfect" so I sent him a second pair. Excellent customer service for both transactions and FAST shipping--thanks!

These boots are pretty well-made for the price, and are great for summer hikers, weekend warriors who aren't looking to do any severe trails or boggy hiking, or for teens who won't be needing them for more than a year or two anyway. They are comfortable, have excellent contoured soles, decent padding throughout, and are reasonably priced. I bought these for my daughter, as she had graduated from generic 'tennis' shoes to needing something more substantial for trails, and these have worked beautifully. The sizing is accurate for her average width, the heel inside is designed to accommodate fairly narrow heels to average width heels, and width reflects the same considerations. The upper material is primarily webbing for ventilation with leather supporting strips, and seems like it will be forgiving in terms of mild stretching if someone's foot were a bit wider than normal. The only kind of odd thing about these, is that the tongue of the boot is attached up to about ankle-height, so you have to kind of push it inside before you lace it. I know, you always have to do that, but in this case, it's thick enough fabric right there that it seems kind of awkward and bulky at the speed-tab lace line. Not a big problem for us, and probably not for you either! :-) Overall, a good boot, and well worth the money.

I have been wearing these Hi Tec boots for over ten years everyday, for work, play and hiking. Sad to say the latest ones are NOT the same. My feet are the same but these boots are not the same,much smaller with a tight toe box. Why was I not surprised to see they are now made in China? Previously they were made in Indonesia. Sadly I will no longer be wearing what were my favorite boots.

These are good looking boots that seemed to be well built of quality materials. Based on other feedback of the boots being tight, I ordered a half size large than usual and the widest size available, an E width. Unfortunately, the boots still felt cramped, especially across the width. I am having to return them but, if you have normal width feet and order a half size larger these may be great boots and a value for you.

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.

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.

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.

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.
