Smaller than the other Hi-Tec Altitude size 13 which means the 14 will be too large. A shame because this boot is nicer and has FLAT laces - much better than round laces!

These shoes are the worst! It is like walking on a brick with NO flexibility. I cannot imagine trying to hike in these shoes.

These shoes are the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever tried. It was like walking on a brick. Very stiff and inflexible. Not a good choice for walking or hiking shoes.

Loved the look and feel of these boots, however, they run small. I normally wear 6 to 6-1/2, but other reviews mentioned they ran small, so ordered the 6-1/2. Even those are a good 1/2 size too small.

They run a half size smaller, but returned them & got a half size larger perfect fit.

I wore these boots on two different hikes a week apart, hoping they would break in. I am a 5.5-6 normally and ordered a 6. My toes on my left foot went numb and felt very sqrunched like they were being cut off of circulation and the right foot, pad, felt like shooting needle pains were stabbing me...this pain continued for a week. I do not fault the boot solely, but I have never had any other shoe give me these type of pains. I will be needing to do a 20 mile hike in a few weeks and do not believe these are a good fit for that adventure. Unfortunately I am asking to return them.

I only test drove these around the house. They really look great. The upper portion of the boot was really uncomfortable for my ankle, probably because the support is so effective?! (I don't hike much either) All else, worked spot on! Hated to return.

I wear an 8W normally in most brands and this 8W is a bit too narrow. The real problem I had with this boot is that the right boot arrived with the lining wrinkled across the little toes and hurt to even put it on. I returned it as defective.

I ordered a 7.5 W, and it was just a bit too small overall. The 8 would've been too big, I think, so I'm looking at other brands. Otherwise, very lightweight, nice looking, seemed like a promising boot for someone else.

Too short. I normally wear an 8 and my big toe hit the end of this boot. Can’t really comment on comfort because the boots were too small to even take the effort to lace them up.

I like these shoes but did not listen to the reviews of them running small. They do. I ended up returning two pairs to get one a full size larger than I normally wear. Part of it is that the shoe is a tad narrow. If you like wearing thick hiking socks, which I do not, you probably won't like these. I particularly like that these have ankle support without being so high that I feel like I'm on safari. Have not had them long but have had good experience with durability from Hi-Tec in the past so time will tell.

We ordered these and a Columbia pair for my son who is just entering men's sizes. We compared the two sets. I liked the laces on these better (easier to tie and stay tied than the round/tube-style laces that just didnt "grab"). However the manufacture of these boots looked a little wonky and perhaps made overseas. When my son stood with his feet together, one boot appeared slightly wider in the toe box than the other, and the seams appeared maybe to be glued? They just looked sort of wonky. Anyway the manufacture quality appeared to be higher with the Columbia boots and since the fit was good on those too, and the price was almost identical, we kept those instead and returned these Hi Tec boots.

Runs small. Fortunately, Zappos offers a great return/exchange policy! Order one size larger.

Offers good protection from the elements but it lacks comfort. On sale it is worth keeping!

Saw prior comment that it felt full size smaller. Thought I'd try a half size larger order instead of a full size, but prior comment was right - a half size up was still too small in the toe box. The ankle area felt loose, though, so I didn't want to reorder another 1/2 size up, or that would feel too big, so I'm exchanging for another brand. Too bad, these look great if they fit your feet!

Great boot. Wore it on 2 hikes right out of the box with no hot spots or rubbing. Nicely padded throughout with good arch support for my very high arches. I have wider feet and this boot was even actually too wide for me!
