The distinctive look of the Altitude Lite combines waterproof suede and nylon mesh in a durable breathable and comfortable upper. Suitable for the toughest day hike, the Dri-Tec waterproof, breathable membrane keeps feet dry from inside and outside the boot, while a nylon shank provides support for uneven terrain. i-shield technology repels dirt and water and an OrthoLite(R) sockliner delivers superior cushioning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Comfort Bought these boots a month ago and I'm pleased with the quality and comfort. I have shopped endless hours for shoes I can wear all day with my plantar fasciitis and these are the best I have found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Boot I've Ever Owned! I bought these boots and didn't really get to seriously break them in and about two weeks later i went on a hiking trip to Ontario. They held up really well and i never got a single blister. Even slipped on a rock and dunked the whole boot under water and within 10 minutes it was dry. The grip on these boots are amazing as well, I could climb up rather steep angles on flat rock and i love using them when working on my steel roof because they dont slip in the slightest!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Boots These are my 4th pair of Hi-Tec hiking boots. The first three pairs fit the bottom of my feet like a glove from the first moment I put them on, so I was a little concerned when this pair did not. However, after walking in them for about 3 hours (not all at once), they fit fine. I have tried many different brands of hiking boots in the past and Hi-Tec are definitely the best for me. My only complaint is that the shoelaces that came with the boot are too short. They were so short initially that I could not tie double-knots, which caused me to have to re-tie them ever 30 minutes. They have stretched out so now I can just barely tie double knots, but it would be nice to have longer laces. I strongly commend Hi-Tec for including a higher quality removable insole with this model. I hope you are now doing this on all your models. I know reviewers in the past have commented on the flimsy insoles on this website, and it's nice to know that you folks read and act on the reviews. Well done!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit seems small I'm hoping they will relax with a little use as they are much tighter on the foot then other shoe I own

I have a bunion and a hammer toe on the right foot, making all shoes, including regular length High Techs, now harder to fit correctly. What Hi Tech hiking boot in a wide width would give me the most space in the toe well and for my bunion?

Asked by: jmar
We would recommend the Bandera Mid WP which has a larger toe box. The Bandera is also available in EEE sizing if needed.

Is this considered a warm weather boot? I just purchased a pair of Logans, and I love the way they fit, but they are too warm for a Louisiana Summer. I will save them for cooler weather and will buy another pair for warm weather. Suggestions?

Asked by: Ed3303
Both the Logan and Altitude Lite are very popular boots. Similarly, they both have a Dri-Tec waterproof membrane to keep your feet dry and provide breathability.

I have a pair of altitude light water proof. I really like them the only issue is the water proof it a joke. Walk 100 yards in grass with dew and my socks are soaked. Is there something to treat this to reactivate them?

Asked by: Big Mac

Have multiple pairs in brown and grey. Would like to know about exact replacement laces for the brown colour shoe.thank you

My husband's favorite boots are your Hi-Tec Men's Altitude Lite I Waterproof Hiking Boot Size 11 Wide. In looking on-line, it appears that they are only available in M. Are you no longer making these or are they presently out of stock?

Asked by: Dindyd

I bought my pair of HI-TEC Altitude hiking boots in the Fall of 2016.  The only trouble I have had is I have been through 2 pair of laces and now on the third set. Where can I find a set of laces that will last?

Asked by: Shoes_are_loose

What is the difference between this boot (Altitude lite i Waterproof) and the Eagle Ridge i Waterproof I just purchased at Big 5? They look almost exactly the same and seem to have the same specs.

Asked by: Rick

Describe this shoe's waterproofing methods in more detail. Is the material breathable, water-wicking, waterproof, etc. (e.g., Gore-tex)? A customer described your Altitude IV Dry-Tec as not being breathable. Is this in the Lite version also?
