I bought these boots a year ago. I hadn't worn them very much before I went on a 2014 Father's Day weekend 20 mile backpacking trip with my daughter, her husband, and her husband's father. It was unusually wet and we had a lot of of small stream crossings. The boots were very comfortable, and kept my feet dry the whole time. The boots were comfortable out of the box. Before the hike I had gone on 3 walks totaling 10 miles to break the boots in and condition myself. I don't think the boots needed to be broken in (Always break your boots in, even if they don't need it! Consider it a test run.), but I needed the conditioning. I hadn't been backpacking in 40 years, I used my old backpack, sleeping bag, and other gear, but was delighted to have a new pair of boots. The boots and the company made the trip very enjoyable. My feet are size 15, so I have a difficult time finding footwear, these come in up to size 17. That made me feel comfortable in ordering the boots. Both my son-in-law and his father recommended the boots to me. In the picture the Dads are on the ends, I am wearing a yellow shirt.

Years ago I owned a pair of Hi-Tec Retro boots that I just wore everywhere all the time, most comfortable boot ever! I wore the soles out and the rest of the boots were still all together, very well made. I was quite happy to find a local source for these now. I bought a pair of the Altitude V's and thought they were super, so I bought two pair of the Altitude IV's as well, and felt very satisfied that I would not have to shop for good boots for a very long time. Then the following weekend I gave the V's a full day on my feet for the first time, went to a large outdoor flea market located on a grassy field, and I was really enjoying the rocker shape of the sole, it seemed to HELP me walk! They were also quite comfortable, except for pressure from the edges of the tongue of the boot against my shin, which I assumed will decrease as they break in, and another MAJOR concern; in the store, I could feel the block tread pushing up through the thin rubber base of the sole, it was very noticable when putting pressure on my foot, such as stepping on a lump underfoot. This would be apparent in many situations, stepping on roots, stones, sidewalk irregularities. etc. I figured I had the problem solved with extra aftermarket insoles, but as the day wore on at the flea market, I realized I could still feel the tread pressing against the underside, and my feet were no longer comfortable at all, it felt like I had debris in my boot, those lumps, combined with the extreme heat that was trapped inside, they were sweatboxes, and I couldn't wait to take them off! No wonder some of the boots at the store had their insoles removed, people were shamefully doubling up on the Hi-Tec insoles inside the boots they were buying! This should have been my warning. I returned all three pair back to the store for a refund, the manager wanted to put them back in stock. I suggested he check this situation out before he sells more, he said they sell a lot of them. He said I must have bought ones with a defect, but every pair I tried on is like that! If Hi-Tec wants to put a little more rubber in the right places on the sole of this boot, and get them to breathe a little past that membrane bootie in there, I will try them again. For the present, I highly DO NOT recommend this footwear. Really tried to like them, perhaps a little too much!

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

An eyelet popped out 6 months after I bought these. Hi-Tec replaced these with Brand Spanking New boots within 10 days. I am very pleased with their help. AND my feet missed these, they are very comfortable on my feet

Amazing boot

By 

from Tampa, FL, United States

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

For the past 5 years, I have been replacing these boots with new versions of themselves. I won't wear any other shoe. I had one heck of a time finding good durable footwear for women - men seem to get all the good boots, but not with Hi-Tec! I am an avid hiker. I am a dog handler. It's safe to say I am on my feet quite a lot and these are the only boots that can deal with it. Not to mention, they are comfortable! I will say though, to people looking to buy these for the first time: there is a breaking in period where the ankle leather is still stiff. It will hurt, haha - but only for about a week. I recommend going on a moderate hike to break them in before you try to wear them to work, or you'll be sore!

New lace eyes cut the strings

By 

from Yuma, AZ, United States

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

My husband has been wearing this boot for about 20 years, and has loved them. They are immediately comfortable. However the new design on the eyelets are narrow and sharp. Upon the first lace up it cut the shoestrings. I bought some leather strings and it cut them. The design is bad and the build of them is flawed.

Nice shoes

By 

from New Berlin, WI

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

I bought these after reading many reviews. Some said that the shoes cracked and split in the front where they flex. Well, mine split in two weeks, and split open on the inside of the left shoe where they flex from walking. Sent an email and received NO ANSWER from the so called customer service! Love the shoes but the FACT that they don't backup their product is very disappointing. It is not like i payed $30.00 for these shoes, $90.00 should get a shoe with SOME design for a long lasting shoe. Would not buy again after wasting $90.00!!!!

The Perfect Hiking Boot!

By 

from Eugene, OR, United States

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

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!

great all around boot for any need

By 

from woods of New Hampshire

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

These boots are excellent. i upgraded for 4 to 5 and am very pleased. the fit great, feel great and are warm in the frigid cold. the only suggestion is: replace the shoelaces with boot laces. my shoe lace broke after a month and I had to replace with bootlaces, which i had from my previous 4 boots. great product and saved a ton of money by ordering on black friday.

Re-purchased

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

I got this pair to replace my 2009 Altitudes (my foot is now 1/2 size bigger; otherwise, I'd still be wearing those). Still love them! The support around the ankle feels a bit stiffer than I remember, but I'm confident it will break in fine. I love the tread on these boots - great for icy conditions. Also love the foot support- can wear these all day! I bought another pair of these because I know the quality is outstanding and worth every penny.

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

I have owned 4 pairs of these boots and all of them have been great. 3 months ago I bought a new pair due to old ones finally wearing out. Within 2 days the new pair lost 3 eyelets on one boot and another on the other boot. Hi tec was good to replace them with a new pair. One month after I received the replacement I'm starting to lose eyelets on both boots again!!!

Buy These, You Won't Be Disappointed!!!!

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

I purchased my first pair in 2002 at, but Yosemite NP, but eventually out grew them :( I have been searching for these since then. Found a pair on ebay. I am so psyched! Comfortable, bUT a little ridged for real hiking and no cleaning necessary. Dirt doesn't cling. I am a full RVER now, and street shoes/fake hiking boots don't cut it for hiking and mud.

Awesome boot!

By 

from Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

This is my third pair of Hi-Tech boots. I am a retired Adirondack Guide and have hiked in all brands of boots. These are my favorite boots by far! My feet stay warm, dry, and happy in them! I am a medical massage therapist and have an "indoor pair" that I wear while working on clients, strange as it sounds! They give me the support I need to be standing on my feet all day. This is an awesome boot!

By

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

The boots I received are probably defective, something in the heel of the right boot broke the 2nd time I wore them, and I've been trying to get an exchange or refund for a solid month, but customer service seems to be actively ignoring me; I'm extremely disappointed, as the boots themselves were very comfortable and were exactly what I was looking for

Not an improvement over the previous generation

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

I've been wearing the Altitude line of boots for close to a decade and they've been phenomenal shoes (two pair got me through the Appalachian Trail!), but this iteration has been disappointing to me. I still love the fit of these boots, but the ankle support is a too rigid and the new eyelets shred my laces - I've gone through 3 pairs of laces in the past year.

Painful

By 

from Wallingford, PA

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

I had been wearing Altitude IVs for 15 or 20 years, using them for both hiking and day-to-day wear. I've always been satisfied with them, although I noticed my last pair wore out more quickly than usual. So when I noticed that Hi Tec now had an Altitude V, I decided to give them a try. Big mistake. Despite trying to break them in for weeks around the house, they never got comfortable. When I used them for the first time for hiking, a three-day 34-mile trip, the result was a divot dug into the top of my right foot that is only now starting to heal and a damaged nail that looks like it will fall off on my left foot. I'm going to give the Altitude Lite a try this time, and I sure hope that my experience with the Altitude V and my most recent pair of Altitude IVs is not indicative of an overall decrease in quality at Hi Tec, since they have been my boot of choice for a very long time.

BEST BOOT AROUND

By 

from South Carolina, United States

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

I am my third pair of these boots. I wore them last year on a Dec. trip to Germany and to New York City in December as well. They are waterproff, extremely comfortable and are my winter shoe of choice. I have tried other, more expensive brands and for the money, these CAN'T be beat. Also, I have significant foot issues, and these boots help with those as well. Even though they are not listed in the "winter boot" section, with a boot sock, you can wear them in really cold temperatures. Unless you are on an Artic expedition these should be your go to winter boot.

Awesome boots!!! The most comfortable shoes I have

By 

from Detroit, MI, United States

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

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.

Great Boots

By 

from FL

Comments about Hi-Tec Altitude V Waterproof Boot Men's, Dark Chocolate, 10:

I have always had to buy a size 10 EEE to fit. I had so much room In them I bought a pair of 9.5 EEE an I could not get a better fit. They are comfortable right out of the box. Gave the 10s to a friend, who wears a 10.5 or 11 EEE, and he loves the fit. I bought them to ride my motorcycle, and be able to park an hike trails. They are less bulky then most motorcycle boots. Waterproofing works very well. For the people that complained, you can't step in water deeper than the boot!!!!. The shoe strings look good, but they are cheap, an don't last very long. An easy fix for a few bucks. You should also know when you buy a waterproof boot its not going to be as breathable as you would like it to be. I also bought a pair of Bandera's, but I had to get a 10 EEE. If you stand the altitude V size 9.5 next to the Bandera size 10. They are the same length. This is an excellent boot for the price. And costumer service always got back to me within a day or two.

Go to footwear for my everyday use... The only downside, the lace eyelet design cut the strings and have to be changed frequently. Never had this problem with the Altitude IV.. Other than that, love this footwear...Thanks Lower rating due to lace eyelet issue...

Laces broke just trying them on. Rubber on front has begun to rip and peel apart. Although comfortable, was hoping they would last longer.
