Altitude V Waterproof is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfied With My Purchase I looked for a tactical boot made by Hi- Tec, but all that I found were more than what I wanted, so I came across the advertisement for the Altitude V, and they were within a price range that was alright with me and I chose to try them out. When I got them they were comfortable and rugged, but still casual. I could wear them for numerous reasons and I figured that they would last as long as I take care of them. They weren't too expensive and I needed some versatile footwear, so I was glad that I made the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a flatfoot! Got these in from a facebook contest and they have kept my feet warm and dry. Went on a weekend MTB ride in mud, trail, brush, gravel - no worries here! Have been wearing them from day to day. Most shoes are painful to break in, these boots seem per-broke-in. Put em on and go! For a flatfoot I wear custom orthotic insoles. Some shoes just don't have the room to fit these in. These boots? No problem. They went right in and my feet still feel great. Plenty of toe room. These are the footwear that Nike wishes they were.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better Wear these everyday for a year now for both work and casual duty. Great for flat feet but calf is a bit wide for me. Leather is thick and durable, soles and stitching have held up well. Worst part is the complete lack of breath-ability. The waterproofing keeps water out but my feet are soaked after work, socks are visibly wet. Even after a couple hours wearing them around the house I can feel my feet getting damp with sweat. The eyelets all had sharp burrs on them that shredded the original laces after a week. Had to file off the edges and use paracord for laces. Not a deal breaker for me though. Decent enough boot for the price. Looks good too. Would buy another pair if Hi Tec can improve the ventilation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment This is the result of light use in an urban environment. The faux leather upper wore out and developed holes simply from the natural bending of normal footsteps. Its integrity is shot and my foot has become vulnerable to every sort of infiltration. Quality control is questionable. You will be hard-pressed to find much uniformity or consistency as hi-tec often changes its production facility from one country to the next (let alone basic symmetry between the left and right pair). I do not recommend and will not purchase hi-tec again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and good quality I bought these for my high school senior. He loves them and reports they are very comfortable. They are very light weight and look really good. So far, the quality of build looks good and the durability looks promising.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Hiking Boot! With so many choices in hiking footwear, I took the salesman's advice and bought a sweet pair of Altitude V's. Not only do the boots fit perfectly, but they are very reasonable priced, look sharp, and most importantly, are great on the trails. The soles provide great traction when scurrying up scree or steep rocks. I have worn my boots on long hiking trips and they provide great comfort. Add in the Altitude's excellent waterproofing, and you have the ultimate hiking boot. Great job, Hi-Tec!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid construction Just ordered these a couple weeks ago, arrived to my home today. Pretty fast shipping considering I'm in Canada. Fair price, although the weak canadian dollar they went from 125 us to $160 canadian :(. Great looking boot though!

whic one has better waterproofing these ones or altitude lite I? I'm about to decide between those pairs

Asked by: omar
Hi. Both boots are great options and feature a waterproof bootie membrane inside the shoe to keep your feet dry. Both boots carry the same technology and benefits with an Ortholite Impressions insole to provide instant comfort. The main difference is that the Altitude Lite is a lighter weight boot with mesh and suede on the upper. The Altitude V is a tried and true waterproof hiking boot with a full leather upper. Based upon your needs we would recommend trying the Altitude V as the full leather upper will offer a more complete and long lasting seal against water. Thank you for your question and happy hiking!

How do I properly care for these boots, recommended products, care, and cleaning

Asked by: GeoRauh
Hi, 1) Allow wet boots to dry naturally 2) With dry boots brush any dry dirt and debris from the product using a stiff bristled hand brush. 3) Clean boots with a water based footwear solution - HI-TEC Footwear Cleaner/Nikwax or Grangers Cleaning Gel 4) Allow footwear to dry 5) Apply a water based leather treatment such as HI-TEC leather treatment or Nikwax Waterproofing Wax 6) Allow to dry 7) Monitor footbed compression. Recommend refreshing footbeds every year to maximise comfort. Thank you HI-TEC

My new Altitude V are doing okay so far with one exception--after a couple weeks the laces are already wearing out. Can you tell me what size laces I should buy to replace them so I don't have to take them out of the boots to measure them?

Asked by: Eddd
Parachute choose the color.....cut to length and will outlast the boot.
