Hi-tec altitude IV's....brown, 70 bucks,a nd the most comfortable thing ive put on my feet in quite some time...with the arch support and padding, they are better than my tennis shoes! Supposedly, they are waterproof too...so that's cool


Ive been wearing Brahma boots from walmart for the last year, but my knees are KILLING me, esp walking sideways on hills etc....


I'll let you know how I feel after a day of mowing

Anyone else wear Hi-tec boots? Are they durable?

I'll have to remember these. I'm due for a new pair because my Timberland Pro's crapped out after 4 months! The back seem where the black leather meets the boot ripped out. They aren't that comftorable either, especially now.

Had a pair of Timberland Pro's, wore out sooo fast. Bought a pair of Danner boots have had them just under a year, wearing well and really comfortable.

You will not need a receipt. Just call them, then send them in. I've replaced many pairs before with no problems.

Cool! The only problem is I can't be without my boots for a day.:cry:

my new hi-tec shoes are great. still breaking them in, so im a bit sore...but thats to be expected with new boots

ne complain is that a small 1 cm section of the sole seems to have separated from the leathe rby maybe 1-2mm. No biggie, and it doesnt look like it can separate further without a lot of effort...but i'll keep an eye on it


other than that...theyre great . highly recommended...esp. for 70 bucks

UPDATE: unless my shoes are THE exception... STAY AWAY FROM THIS BRAND

I've worn these for a total of only 45 work days, 5-6 hour days....and so far the right sole has worn thru at the heel, the sole is detached in the front, they are no longer waterproof, and there is not ONE BIT of traction on the soles...smoothe as glass


i give them a 2/10, only because they are comfortable. nut 70 bucks for disposable boots is dumb

Yours must have been the exception, I've owned several pairs of hi-tec tennis shoes, forgot what they call them. none lasted less than 3 years. 1 pair of boots and just plain got tired of wearing boots so I gave them to a cousin for work. The lasted forever. Hi-tecs are grat, very comfortable and dependable imo

This year, I switched over to a pair of Terra boots (http://www.terrafootwear.com/). These have been great; comfortable, waterproof (I'm an irrigation guy) and most importantly, stood up! In a normal year, I go through 2 or 3 pairs of boots, and these ones made the whole year and show very little wear on the soles.

The Hi-Techs are some sweet boots. I had a pair and they lasted two years plus they were more comfortable than my sneakers. I have timberland pros how and they are not the most comfortable. My feet are sore after working this afternoon. My next boots will be another pair of hi-techs.

Wolverine boots are awesome. I will see if I can find mine they are very comfortable waterproof and steel toe. I think shoe carnival has them for like $69 if not sears has them for $90 and I buy two pairs every January. Buy one get one half of sale. I think this is them http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_067B0028000P

But her is a list of a whole bunch of them and some look even more comfortable then mine.
