Altitude Lite I-Shield Waterproof

So far the reviews are divided on whether these are light or heavy. I found them very heavy and also weak on arch support, allowing me to pronate even in such sturdy boots. If you don't need arch support these might be for you. They definitely support the whole foot and ankle well otherwise.

I had a good experience with these boots, due to Zappos' excellent customer service, mainly. I bought them days before I was to go on retreat. The site, at the time, had a "timer," saying that they'd arrive in two days--which was two days before I left on retreat. Well, when they didn't come, I contacted customer service, and the kindly rep gave me a $25 credit, canceled the pair that was sent to me regular mail, and reordered a pair sent overnight. They arrived just before I left on retreat--and for my inconvenience, they were gifted to me. I had paid $65 for them, as I had a discount coupon from before. Well, they were uncomfortable--I am guessing hiking boots are not for me, after all, after wearing sneakers and mules for years--and I offered to return them. But, since they didn't cost me anything, I was told I could give them away, which I did. What is more is that the $65 I would have spent on them were credited to a pair of Merrell Encore Breeze 3 mules, which I have bought from this site, several times, already. That, along with the $25 credit already on my account from when the first pair didn't arrive on time, rendered my mules free of charge. I have had to exchange them twice now, but the credits keep rolling over. Such great customer service!

Bought these for my husband. Started with a 10 (his usual size) but had to return them for 10.5. The 10.5 seem to be fine. I bought the women's style for myself and needed a half size larger also. Very nice boots and very good price for not -too- frequent hikers!

Great boot for the price point. I've purchased several Hi-Tech boots over the years and this one is not quite as well made as the last I purchased but it was over $100 so I'm not complaining. I use them for waterproof work boots around water all day and they have always served me well.

These boots are amazing! They are very fashionable, comfortable and felt true to size giving me the option of wearing socks of varied thickness. I will be going to Boston soon and can't wait to try them out on tough weather. As soon as I put them on they felt comfortable and did not feel very heavy while walking.

I ordered a 9, my regular size, and they were a bit tight. I exchanged them for the 9.5, and they seem perfect. I wear a 9.5 in Skechers, too, so it must be activity type shoes. I found a very old pair of HiTecs in my closet, and they were 9.5, too. Also, we ordered the same (mens) boots for my husband and he had to exchange his for a half-size larger. My boots are very cute, and seem comfortable. Have just worn them around the house because we are planning a trip to Yosemite and thought waterproof boots would be a good idea. I remember I really liked the other HiTecs, and they are priced very reasonably.

The wide isn't wide enough. I ordered wide width and a full size larger than usual, and my toes were still slightly cramped. My feet are not super extra wide, either, just normally wide. Otherwise, this shoe appears well-made. It feels firm and supportive in the footbed. I have high arches and don't need arch support, but the footbed felt natural and unobtrusive--which means it's probably lacking in arch support. Also, the ankles rubbed painfully. I wore them for about five minutes around the house and already my ankles felt rubbed and soon to be bruised. So overall, not a great boot for me, but the firm-but-cushioned footbed is enough to leave me willing to try another style in this brand.

Right out of the box, one of the lacing hooks was broken off. Read this was a problem in other reviews, I can confirm. Otherwise, comfort and fit were fine, although they seem a little wide in the heel. Shame I didn't get a chance to wear them. Generally, I used to like hitec boots because of the quality for the price point, but I'm going to another brand.

Seems good, haven't had them long enough for a real rundown. Only complaint about the design is the tongue gusset, it doesn't extend up very far and will allow water and debris into the boot. Wore them on a hike today and they were quite comfortable despite minimal breakin.

I have another pair of Hi-Tec boots and found myself wearing them more and more for all day comfort when hiking outdoors. This lower hiking shoe meets those same requirements, however, I use it for an everyday shoe. The shoe hugs my foot and supplies excellent, comfortable support. The sole is firm and flexible. The grips are perfect for excellent traction in a variety of environments. I really appreciate the engineering and attention to detail. Upon close inspection, this shoe has neat seams and a pleasing look. The contrast of the light blue laces and inside is perfect. The laces are long enough to easily snug and tie. I have had these shoes for over a month and have worn them without an issue. They are comfortable and my go to shoe for all day comfort and style.

These boots not only look great, they fit good right out of the box. Extremely light with a heel that grips well even on wet and muddy trails. Don't tell Hi-Tec but I've paid much more for boots by big name companies that just didn't hold up to these!

No,no,no,no,no,no. These are so stiff and uncomfortable or the box. Going back big time.

Great Boots!!!!! Great Price they are worth getting I live in NYC although the snowstorm just left... I couldn't wait to slide my feet into these beautiful warm boots they are very light weight nice feel on the inside so so comfortable... It made me smile knowing i got a good purchase and i just love comfort but when i am walking it didn't feel like i am carrying the weight on these boots like the UGG Chilkat Just to let you ladies these but do run big i wear a size 8 1/2 i had to get the 8 whole size which i thought from reading the reviews but i didn't get the 9 because i normally wear a size 9 in shoes but the size 8 I still had room wearing these boots I couldn't put thick socks on with these boots because it made the boots feel tight but I believe if you add on a thin socks that would have a better feel and not make the boots feel tight i just think you guys should know but they do feel great with no socks. :-)

These are so cute! However-I have to return them because they are a little tight at the toes. My feet also slip at the heel even though they appear to be the right size for me. The sale price is a great discount discount and they are well made. Just not the right fit for me.

I liked the construction of the shoe, but the size ran short. Perhaps, if I could have adjusted the heel strap it might have fit.

These are great hiking boots. I bought them for my dad and he barely had to break them in. He is from WA and they do well in the muddy and wet terrain.

I wanted to love them! Cute design, and would have kept my cold toes warm except the insulated lining made the fit too snug for my toe box,aggravating my neuroma. For a normal foot without any issues, these will keep your feet toasty!
