Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike Tuff feels great rubber sole waterproof leather
I've had Hi-Tec's for 25+ years. I needed good ankle support with rubber sole X-carpenter and outdoors man solid waterproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HopDevil Great Boot (when they fit)
I have owned this exact boot for 6 years, time for a new pair. I take size 12, but in this boot 13 fits well. The new boot I ordered size 13 , and my wife tried to surprise me and ordered the same boot in 13 wide. Well, they are both to small! I returned both 13 medium and 13 wide. I ordered size 14, they run true to size and my feet floated around in them. Returning them and will have to get a different boot since size 13 are not true to size :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarefulBuyer Hi-Tec Altitude IV - a great boot
I've been looking for a leather hiking boot at an affordable price. I found it in these boots. Not only that but they are extremely comfortable and rock solid. I have a very wide foot and ordered the wide. Its a bit snug but only after a week is breaking in nicely and I'm sure will work fine. It's great to see Hi-Tec continuing to make a classic, leather hiking boot that work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happycustomer Really comfortable pair of boots
I have been purchasing these boots for years. They are comfortable and waterproof. They look great with jeans and chino pants. Great hiking boots, and really easy to clean. I use them with insoles most of the time. I am truly satisfied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JimE Medium is tight, don't get larger if you are wide.
I bought these from Bass Pro a few months ago, on sale, and they fit great in the store, I bought a 1/2 size larger (11 1/2) when I got them as they did not carry wide, and now I'm wishing I had simply passed them by. Why? After a while on local trails (no long distance hikes until they break in) they started cramping my toes and causing foot pain. (I'm past the 60 day comfort guarantee -- blast it), but really wish I had investigated getting the wide from the website. Moral of the story? Don't 'settle' just because it's a great boot, has a great reputation and is on sale. Get what you need, and this is not what I need.
On the plus side, I have trouble with shoes that have built in arches, and this has a relatively flat foot-bed, which allows me to use my own molded insole. So far, I haven't need them, the comfort (except for the toes) is great. I just completed a five mile hike that ended with the last 1/4 in a thunderstorm, and the waterproofing worked superbly. My feet were the only part of me that stayed dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatC I am still wearing my Altitude II boots, purchased in 2004- they have been worn daily through all outdoor conditions from swamps in Florida to peat bogs in Shetland, and have never leaked or separated. They are semi-retired now, in Shetland, and I am hoping a replacement pair of Altitude IVs will live up to the standard set; since the UK does not offer the size I need (US mens 7) I will have to have them shipped to relatives in the US and forwarded on- very convoluted but based on previous experience worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark K Great Boots!
I have been buying the Altitude IV WP size 9 wide for years. I wear them every day to the office and then take them out to play in the hills, mountains, and deserts of So Cal as often as I can get away. They have never let me down. Every year when I get a new pair, the old ones still get worn for yard work. If you are ever going to discontinue this model, please let me know so I can buy enough pairs to last me the next 20 years or so!
Keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ludo I call these my FOREVER shoes
I've had this exact shoe for over 8 years and the look, wear and feel exactly the way they did when I bought them. I live in mountainous area with insane amounts of snow and all the ice you will ever need. For us, spring comes on a Tuesday, Summer the following Sunday and then Fall the following monday. I typically walk the dog anywhere between 6 and 10 miles a day, every day with these shoes. The soles still look absolutely brand new except for a tiny bit of scuff on the due to a minor irregularity cause by how I walk.
Were I to clean them up a tad, give the suede a nice brushing I have ABSOLUTELY no doubt that I could go back to the store and say they were a x-mas present and I didn't have the receipt. I would never do that but I'm simply using it for an example of how incredible these shoes are. If I had known I would have bought three pairs to last me the rest of my life.
