Altitude V i Waterproof is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough all around boot for all conditions I purchased a pair of the Altitude V boots specifically for a trek of Kilimanjaro. I put them to the test during my break in period: rain, snow, mud, creeks & hiking. They are comfortable and truly waterproof, probably the best waterproof boot I have ever owned period. I was extremely pleased with them so I used them for my climb of Kilimanjaro in Africa.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boot abuse I am a UPS package car driver and have been through about seven pairs of Altitude boots. They see all kinds of abuse from extreme weather to nail riddled walk paths and every concrete walk path in my area. Never had a pair last more than a year but they give excellent protection and good durability under the extreme circumstances they are subjected too..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought these boots because the had all the features I wanted, The came in my size 15, and they are made up to size 20. So I knew I could get a bigger size if I needed to. They are waterproof and had smooth tough looking leather outers. I was really surprised at the great ankle support. They are lightweight and comfortable right out of the box. My son-in-law and his father both have Hi-Tec boots and highly recommended them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boots!!! The most comfortable shoes I have My 13 years old son decided he wanted to start backpacking, I wanted to encourage his new healthy hobby, so we planned an overnight hiking trip. I am 47 over weight with chronic knee and back pain, so I decided I needed a good pair of hiking boots. I have bought lots of boots, but all gave me knee/back pain after walking a mile or so. I liked the 6 month comfort guarantee so I figured I had nothing to lose. We started with couple or 3-5 mile hikes through southern Michigan marsh lands – they broke in quickly, feet stayed dry and comfortable all day. The big test came on our overnight trip, over 2 days we hiked over 17 miles, up and down 15 muddy steep hills, and I was amazed that I finished with NO knee or back pain. I will definitely buy more hi-tec boots, next pair is for my son. Thank you Hi-Tec, for selling a good quality boot at a reasonable price, so that I can share the special time and adventure with my son.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots I've never been able to find a comfortable hiking or work boot in my life until now. I have the model right before this one and they've been wonderful. Truly the most comfortable I've ever worn. I bought a another pair, the above model, which arrived yesterday and they feel magnificent. One pair working working around the house and one pair for hacking around town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot I bought them for the waterproof property, since I walk in all kinds of weather. They tested well in snow and water puddles. The insides are nicely insulated with sock material and are very comfortable to walk in at my brisk pace. They work well walking on lakeside rocks as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy Great buy, great product. The insoles are also good, a big step up from the basic insoles found in most hiking boots. Nice grip. Warm, waterproof boots for the winter months. Would highly recommend, thanks Hi-Tec!

To replace my old Hi Tec boots, I bought a pair of Altitude V's. But after a couple wears only around town the dark brown finish scuffed off of two large patches. Is this normal, can the finish be repaired and will it affect the waterproofing? Thanks

What's the main difference between the hi tech altitude lV and the altitude V hiker. And: can you give a store that has this items in stock, in san antonio, texas. Thanks. r.a. I already tried, Academy, Koals, Sun and Ski,

Asked by: Ram 2162
The Altitude V and IV have many of the same features and benefits. However, there are some key differences. The Altitude V i Wp is a full grain leather upper. The Altitude IV in contrast is a nubuck leather which has a suede feel. The Altitude V also has an OrthoLite Impressions sockliner which gives supreme cushioning and has anti-microbial and anti-odor properties. The Altitude V also has a nylon "fork shank" in the midsole to give you flexibility and stability. We hope this helps you in your decision. We do not have the ability to check a retailers specific inventory. However, if you can not find the boots in stores, we recommend you check on our website at "".

Is it a compression toe shoe?

Asked by: Amanda
The Altitude V is a soft toe boot, however it does have a compression molded EVA midsole to absorb impact.

Have you had people complain about the eyelets cutting the shoestrings?   My husband's new pair has a different lace up design.   They are narrow and sharp.   He has worn these boots as a farmer and a fisherman, and for good.
