Penrith Low Waterproof

These were plenty wide in the forefoot to not pinch my bunions (I was surprised, since they do not come in wide - I just ordered a regular size), and I liked that they have a cushy lining so you do not feel all the stitching and appliqued stripes on the outside. However, the middle (i.e. around my ankle) and the heel were so wide, they made my feet look chunky, and my heel slipped. If they fit you correctly, though, I would recommend them as a low-profile hiker which is what I like wear when traveling - doing lots of walking, standing in museums, and day hikes.

Ordered these as a pair of all-rounders for the countryside I work on as a retired guy. I wanted something I could use to work around the ranch and to take my hound for walks down the road. These were a fail. The big reason was absolutely no arch support whatsoever and the rest of the boot just was very cheaply made and disappointing. I wasn't expecting a home-run at the price but I might as well have strapped on the box they came in as that would have been as comfortable. Zappos once again made it painless to return and these bargain hikers need to be D/Ced asap. Won't go to hi-tec again probably.

I was surprised to find such a nice sandal for this price! I like everything about it, especially the way the straps cross at the great toe -- no pressure on the bunion area! The back straps are slightly loose for me as I have a narrow heel but I can glue in a piece of foam if this becomes an issue over time. Perhaps this looser fit will prevent the stitching from coming apart.

I used to wear Hi-Tec years ago before switching to Merrell, This was a great price and thought I would give the brand another try. As usual the shipping time is always superb with Zappos, I got the shoes the next day and tried them on, they have no padding internally and I felt like I was wearing the box more than a pair of shoes. The real downside for this is that I don't even walk, I am in a wheelchair, and the shoes hurt around the toe areas. I took them off and put my hand up inside and there is no padding, just a hard surface. I suppose they could be useful with heavy or double socks.

I've had these boots for three years. Although I only wear them maybe 10 days a year, they are great. I wear them in the rain and snow. Stays dry and warm. Only problem I have is that they seem to come untied if not double knotted.

Very warm and very comfortable. I live in a cold, snowy environment and these are the warmest boots I've ever owned. Plus they're cute!

I really like the looks of these boots, and I liked the fact that they are supposed to be warm, but how in the world do you get them on? I don't have an unusually big or wide foot, but I couldn't get my foot in the boot at all. It doesn't really open up or have a zipper or a "tongue" on the boot that lets you get your foot in. I'm disappointed. I don't know how to rate it. It looks like a great boot, but it won't work for me.

This series of boots run really small. Maybe two sizes too small. I normally wear a size 9½-10. I first bought a pair size in 10, that was way too small, I sent it back and then got a size 11 which is still too small. I am going to go with another style of boots. These boots are really comfortable and soft but just too small.

I had these shoes for seven years. I wore them at work for two summers straight, I would throw them on for quick errand runs around town, and I took them traveling from Alaska to Antarctica and everywhere in between. They held up great. The reason that I got rid of them was that the rubber sole started getting a little worn (after seven years who can blame them) and I did not have room in my luggage to bring them home from Nepal. I came online to buy a new replacement pair, and I have already started breaking them in!

When our rains of Monsoon ease into the most beautiful snows of winter (your summer), my Hi-Tec Logan WPs are with me. My feet are happy; my heart is happy. On a recent journey to Lhasa, the path was true, my soles loyal, my pneuma enlightened. Entreaties to you Zappotistas for delivering with haste, dependable as the Southern Cross.

These are narrowly made, even the WW version. I tried going up a 1/2 size, still not good. They are good looking otherwise, but too narrow for a wider foot.

These look very cute in the photos, but in larger sizes (I ordered a 10) they just aren't cute at all. They're long and narrow and the toe part looks huge...the "chunky" factor is only in smaller sizes. They're heavy and stiff and clunky. Too bad, because the look of the fleece is awesome.

We are having such a hard time finding the right size for my son (age 11) who is sandwiched between the boys/men sizes. This is a fabulous boot, lovely quality, but unfortunately this size 8 was too tight.

I bought these boots for my daughter. As a college student, she is doing a lot of walking around campus and too and from the light railway in Minnesota. She absolutely loves these boots. They are warm, are good walking through snow and icy sidewalks and aren't clunky looking for a snow boot. I would like a pair myself. I consider getting these boots a half size larger considering thick socks, but got her regular size 9. They fit great.

Very comfortable boot I use to walk to train every day. Had to go half size up for fitting purposes.

Bought these for my 13-year-old, who isn't into wearing chunky winter boots anymore, but still goes out for recess and walks home from school throughout the winter. These boots are a good compromise, as they make me happy by protecting from cold and snow, but are acceptable to him appearance-wise.

One of the best pair of boots I own. I live way up in the UP of Michigan so its important to have something warm and water proof. The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the laces, they're long and the tighten lace always just sticks out. I also wish they were a little taller for walking through those big snow banks. Other than that they're very grippy, warm, and waterproof.I haven't slipped yet which is good.

Based on other reviews and my knowledge of snow boots, I ordered a 9 which is a half size larger than what I normally wear. It was slightly too big - I could tell when I walked that there was too much room in the toe area. It took forever for me to lace them because the laces kept slipping on the fur and wouldn't stay tight. The fur was just too much for me. I couldn't fit my jeans over it and expect them to stay there when I walked. They seemed like they would be pretty comfortable if I had the right size. Looked big and clunky on my feet. Treads felt slippery to the touch, and I don't ever like treads like that, they just never stick on slippery surfaces. I compared them with the Vasque Pow Pow Ultra Dry, and the Vasques were more comfortable and warmer, plus the treads were better and they fit more what I was looking for - a versatile boot to wear everywhere in rain and snow, while camping or hiking or walking through my backyard or from store to store. I also tried the Merrell Polarand Rove Peak, and I love those! They have great treads and they're warm too.

I work outside and needed something waterproof, light weight and warm. These are all that and cute. I do not think that I am going to have to buy foot warmers this year. I am very Happy with my purchase.

The most painful pair of boots I've ever worn. Both of my feet were bleeding after wearing them hiking the first time. The boots have a hard plastic liner that go halfway up the inside. Its top edge will rub the bottom of your ankle bone with every step. I would've returned them if they didn't have my blood on them. A lawsuit would probably be a more appropriate course of action.
