My 11-year-old really likes these for moderate hiking & camping. He is in that "in-between" boy/men's size that is hard to find and these fit the bill. Haven't tested them for longevity, but the price was good and he thinks they're cool.

I have purchased this boot after reading about its nice reviews. I understood that it was a mistake only after 3 days of use. Unfortunately, it's made of low quality materials. It started to look old only after one week. It's not waterproof even though the product description states so. My son's feet were always wet when he wore these in a rainy or snowy day. It's also a struggle to keep the laces in place. He had to ask for help to lace them many many times during the day at school. I definitely do not recommend these boots to anyone.

I bought these for my 9-year-old daughter for a trip to Australia. She says they are very light and comfortable. She has worn them on many hikes now, including one of 12 km. Uphill, downhill, sandy, stony; no blisters or complaints. Looks like she will outgrow them before they wear out.

We bought these boots for our 9 year old. So far they are fabulous in the woods and on the boulders around here, but the real test will come in a month when we go back hiking in New Hampshire. The quality of the boots is really good and so is how they feel on your feet, says our son. The price is also very good, so we think we got a winner.

Yes, he loves these shoes. We hiked up Cascade and Porter in the Adirondacks. Not one single blister or hotspot in that first wearing. So glad we found these boots. He needs a wider bed for the ball of his foot and these worked out great though not a specific wide shoe.

My son won't take them off! We purchased these boots for Boy Scout hiking adventures, but my son wears them everywhere. He says they fit perfectly and are very comfortable. They seem sturdy, only time will tell. They are a very good looking shoe. We bought a 1/2 size up as they felt snug but not off sized. It might just be the difference from athletic shoes to a boot.

I bought these for my 11-year old son to wear primarily for Boy Scout activities. I bought them because they were billed as waterproof, and we treated them with additional waterproofing before first use. Their first test was a camp-out and five mile hike in the White Mountains, unfortunately during a period of 24 hour rain. The shoes soaked through, but they took about 8 hours to do so. To be fair, EVERYTHING soaked through on this day - GoreTex raingear, my husband's all-leather Vasque boots, etc - partially due to everything being wet, including performance clothing, which pulled the wetness into boots and under rain gear, so it's hard to be too hard on these boots alone. On a less rainy day or a shorter time out they would have kept his feet dry. My son finds them very comfortable with no break in time and thinks they look cool. Overall, a good performance boot for a reasonable price.

I NEED these shoes to be waterproof for an upcoming backpacking trip, & and after shoveling snow & slush & standing in some slushy water, they definitely leaked around the bottom edge. Also the arch is poor, I have good arches and these keep making my feet roll inward, so I was going to have to replace the insoles before my trip. They were a good value for the price, until the leak thing, for me that is a deal-ender. Comfortable right out of the box, though, and easy to wear. I’ll still keep them for casual use.

I ordered these for my 11-year-old son who is going to a few outdoor camps this summer and on some Boy Scout camping/backpacking trips. I ordered them in his regular size and a 1/2 size up. I know that hiking boots need to fit well. I don't want him to get blisters. I think these run a bit on the small side. His big toe was very close to the front of the shoe (though not touching) on the smaller sized boot (his actual shoe size - he was measured about 2 weeks ago). The pair that was 1/2 size larger fit fine too. He ran around the house in them and his heel did not slip out. Also, there is about 1/4 - 3/8 now between his big toe and the front of the boot. These are waterproof too. I think they will be perfect and allow for a bit of growth. Love Zappos free return policy.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keen, columbia, north face, spyder, basque

My son seems to really like this boot. It's comfortable and sturdy, and the best part is it's waterproof. I don't like lacing them up, but I wouldn't like lacing any boots up. It can be a hassle two or three times a day. Other than that, they're great.

Fantastic shoe for an active boy! It's rugged, durable, and stylish to boot (no pun intended!). Our son loves wearing them, so I'm assuming they're comfortable. So far, we've been very pleased!

I got these shoes for my son. He is 10 years old. I love all seasons hiking and always encourage my son to come with me. Before I got Hi-Tec Kids Renegade Trail shoes I heard a lot of complaints from my son about his legs getting very tired and hurting. I did not hear a single complaint on the 7 miles winter hike from my son when he wore these shoes and the most important thing is his feet were dry after walking on the wet muddy trail.

I was not the wearer of this shoe, my 6 year old son was, so I am giving a second person review here. As his mom, I noticed lots of wet socks, so not as waterproof as we would have liked. We also had problems with the laces slipping off of the top hooks; almost as if they were positioned too far downward facing. I never heard complaints about fit or style, so I assume they were fine in that department. The laces slipping off the pegs was an issue for my kindergartner, who did not yet know how to tie his own shoes. He kept coming home with his shoe laces dragging.

This shoe is a nice hybrid between the Hi Tec TT Mid Waterproof Adventure Sport Shoe and the Hi Tec Trail WP Hiking Boot. Both rugged boot and comfortable tennis shoe in one. Hoping my son would choose a boot with "Big-Fit" option to give him more wear time, but he insisted that these boots were much more comfortable. Can't beat comfort when it comes to a hiking boot. We're sold on it!

These were purchased for my 8 year old who normally needs a wide shoe. I took a chance on these based on other reviews and am happy I did. They are comfortable, have plenty of room in the toes, don't slip, and have great traction on hills. They required almost no break-in time before we went on an easy mountain hike.

We bought these for our 8 year old in preparation for an all-day mountain hike. From the moment he put them on he declared them the most comfortable shoes he's ever worn. No blisters on the hike and no complaints of sore feet. Well made. Well priced. Buy these.

This is a great boot! My 11-year old son need hiking boots for a scout backpacking trip. These fit perfectly, and didn't require breaking in like leather boots would. Well worth the money.

My 8-year-old chose these after looking at hiking boots in stores and online. They look great and have worked well through several serious hikes. We would recommend.
