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!

Good looking shoe with absolutely no arch support, alas! Have to return it. Thank you.

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!

The shoe hurt my ankle. I will look for low cut hiking boots.

Size 9, Male. Shoe fits comfortably with the strap and bungee at their tightest. Be prepared for blisters on your heel if you have not worn shoes like this. They worked great for a canoe/camping trip.

Ordered 11M sent back for 11.5M. At least half size small. Exchange went flawlessly.

Good, sturdy walker for the price. One of the laces has some weird rubber coating on it - probably a manufacturing glitch. I like that they slip off easily once the laces are off their first hooks.

This is my son's second pair of Skamania's. We bought the first pair for him when he did a week long self supported camping trip with his YMCA camp in the mountains in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. They hiked sometimes 10 miles a day and these boots held up great. No complaints about them being uncomfortable or rubbing funny. He's doing the trip again this year so there was no hesitation about purchasing them again (his feet grew; that is the only reason he needed another pair). Hoping I can pass the first pair down to his sister when she goes on the same trip in a few years.

Good boot. Takes a lickin', but doesn't even last a full year of regular wear. Granted, Im tough on boots but i keep reordering them, at least until i find a pair i like better that lasts longer!

Bought these for an upcoming trip to Acadia National Park. I usually wear an 8 in athletic shoes so that's what I bought. These were tight; a little short and very narrow. I wore them for a few hours around the house with a thin sock to see if they would stretch at all, but they didn't. They also made my feet very warm; not desirable for summer hiking. Going back. Going to try Columbia instead.

boots were a little slow to break in, but they are fine now, use them daily, walk at least 15 mile a day mowing and trimming lawns, only 2 weeks but seem to be holding up . Size is small, wear 12's got 13's

The shoe looks great and the quality seems really good. However, while wearing them inside the house only for a few days, I realized that the shoe felt very tight in the toe area, while in the mid section and heel area it felt fine. The toe area is narrower than other brands I have worn in the past, e.g. Merrell and Keens. I am going to try a half size larger to see if that will result in a comfortable fit.

I have had a bad ankle problem for four years and someone suggested Hi-Tec shoes and they have really made a difference. This is my second pair and so far have been a "miracle" for support of my ankle. Since I live in Florida, I find the shoes a little heavy and hot but they are giving me the support I need and I am no longer in pain. I wear them every day. I ordered a size larger thanks to the reviews and glad I did.

I really liked the shoe, even though I ordered a half-size larger it didn't fit. Returned to Zappos (returns are a pain) and went to REI and ended by a different brand boot. This Ui-Tec was a good price, I wish it would have fit.

Bought these for a trip to Iceland. They seem like a nice shoe but run small, so will be returning for a larger size.
