Besides taking over a week and a half to get it mail order from Cali to Hawaii, the boots are great. I love Hi-Tec boots and this particular model isn't available locally. There was a model similar to it but when I wore it (I'm 10.5) at Sports Authority, felt tight. so I ordered these a half size up and I was spot-on on the size. You need to order these boots a half size bigger than your feet! Especially if you wear thick hiking socks like I do. Tried them on, walked around a little and it felt real good and comfy. The design is great, waterproof is a plus, and the outsoles are super. I love what I ordered!

Be Careful Heavy & Clunky

These are not the best. They are not as waterproof as they should be. They are heavy, clunky and snug. They seem to run small even with wearing a simple tennis sock.....Read complete review

These are not the best. They are not as waterproof as they should be. They are heavy, clunky and snug. They seem to run small even with wearing a simple tennis sock.. they run SMALL. The tread is great. But not much else. Spend more, go GORE-TEX

Worst boots ever

By 

from Durango, CO, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

These are bulky, heavy, and extremely uncomfortable. The 9 was too small and 9.5 too big if my socks were thin. The part around the ankle is too wide and I constantly had sticks and pine needles going in. It also caused my ankle to sweet and bruise. I went on a 32 mile trip and was in excruciating pain. Unbeerable, I was almost in tears. Blister on my big toe, and all around my heels. No cushion what si ever, felt like walking on wood planks. My feet are still sore and in a lot of pain. These were so bad I literally left them in the mountains and hiked out in flip flops. So incredibly disappointed.

Disappointed

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

I've had hi tec hiking boots multiple times. They tend to be a plug and play boot. I mainly use as an every day wearing shoe. Mountain biking with bear claw peddles. At first they fit tight and wasn't sure if I could keep them. I decided to keep them and they fit better after my first wear. A few more times out in the brush doing work and now they fit so loose and my foot slops around. These boots for some reason don't have 2 hook eyes on each side at the top for lacing. Instead of the normal, hi tec went with one hook and the tongue falls open like a big scoop and catches every piece of dirt, leaf, grass, stick, bug coming your way. This single low lace hook really provides no support and essentially turns this into a low hiker instead of the expected mid hiker. The arches feel about a half inch too far to the rear and likely is what causes my foot to cramp up only after a few hours and my feet are still in pain hours after taking them off. I bought 4 pairs of different shoes at the same time and the pair that I thought would be the most dependable turned out to have issues and have shown to be poorly made already. The other shoes have been great and one pair extremely great.

Boots comfortable but broke at 1 year

By

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

Boots are comfortable and look good, but they are not built to last. The lace holder broke right off just after 1 year of light use.

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

I bought a pair of these hikers Feb. 29th 2016. They lasted about almost a year. One of the eye hooks fell off, the shoelaces fell apart and the insole right foot fell out and their not waterproof! I wrote and asked if they could be fixed. No. Their 11 days out of warranty. I will never ever buy a pair of Hi-Tec boots again.

Great Boot

By 

from Shelby, NC

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

I bought these a few days ago to wear doing yard work. I garden, plant trees, hike, landscape, etc., so need something light, rugged, and waterproof. It's raining hard today, so tested them and there were no leaks. Very comfortable right away, not too hot, and good support and construction. I like them so well, will get another similar pair this week. Only negative is the soles pick up mud easily and it's hard to get out, but these are made for hiking. I wish they made a "farm boot" similar with a sole that would not hold as much dirt. Love them aside from this. I bought a half size smaller in the men's to fit me, as I couldn't find anything in women's at my store. Worked great. This is my 2nd pair of Hi-Tecs.

3 defective pairs in a row

By 

from L A, CA, United States

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

I hope it's just bad timing but, I have had 3 defective pairs in a row. The top lace hook keeps breaking. The first pair broke the 3rd time I wore them, the second pair lasted about 6 weeks, the third pair broke the second time I wore them. HI-TEC has been very good about replacing them and this time is giving me a different model. Other than this, I do like the boots?

Still going strong!

By 

from Middleborough, MA, United States

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

Absolutely nothing disappoints about this boot. I've had these boots for almost 3 years, wearing them almost daily. I have issues with impact when walking, not a problem with these. Fit and comfort are outstanding. Winter of 2014-2015 dropped NINE FEET of snow, needless to say, I was out shoveling very often but my feet were dry and warm every time.

Good, Except!

By 

from Catskills, NY

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

I have been a satisfied Hi-Tec hiking boot customer for over 40 years. On this pair I notice that the laces do not slide easily through the metal triangles on the sides of the boot. This makes it difficult to tighten when lacing and even more difficult to loosen when taking them off. I think the lace gets "bound/pinched" in the angle of the triangle. I would suggest you change that triangle shape to a D-ring shape with circular side of the D facing the middle of the tongue. This would allow the lace to move freely. It should also extend the life of the lace by not "pinching" it at one stress point. And definitely order the widest one because they run a little narrow.

Great hiking/walking boot

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

I bought these boots for walking/hiking in wet winter conditions in Piedmont North Carolina. The fit is great, the price was outstanding, the shipping was flawless, and the waterproof aspect adds sheer joy to outdoor adventures.

Comfort? Yes. Waterproof? Not even a little.

By 

from Libby,Mt

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

I've been wearing these boots pretty regularly for about two months. The comfort level is quite high; especially right out of the box, there was really no break in period. The materials seem strong, I've seen no wear to speak of. The laces are not good. Or at least they are not good for this boot. They shred where they contact the upper hook very quickly. My biggest complaint, and the reason I am on this web-site, is the waterproofing. I went hunting down an old road. This road was not overgrown and there was very little grass. It was raining. It took less than an hour for my feet to be COMPLETELY soaked. Now, I wasn't expecting to have dry feet after walking through a creek, or trudging through knee high grass all day, but I've had old tennis shoes with better waterproofing than this. Very disappointing.

Excellent Trail Boot!

By 

from Cocoa, FL, United States

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

I received these boots as a gift around a year ago. Just got to use them this past Saturday for a 5.5 mile hike through the Three Lakes WMA in Florida (part of the Florida Trail). I thought they were very comfortable and I had no size difference issues that I have been reading about on the internet (same size as my pair of sneakers). I was able to wear padded hiking socks in comfort as well. I can't comment on the water proofing of these boots since I wasn't walking in ankle deep muck or water but I did walk in about two inches of water and there was a lot of dew on the grasses I was walking through, feet were as dry as when I put the boots on before the hike. I did get one small blister but that was due to just putting the boots on, hiking without any break-in time, carrying a twenty pound pack, plus I haven't hiked in around 15 years (much, much better than my old military issued jungle boots from when I hiked all the time, plagued with blisters). The boots look good and the construction seems well done also. Very impressed with these boots. I plan on getting another pair in the olive color and would like to see them offered in camouflage as well. Nicely made boot. I wear a regular size 7.5 boot and shoe. Thanks for making my feet, well, happy feet.

Decent but no cushioning

By 

from Wisconsin

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

Quality construction. Bought as a work but as I do a lot of walking. Had to buy gel insoles as the included footbed provided zero cushioning or comfort. Sizing was correct.

Comfortable Boot

By 

from Conway, SC, United States

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

This is my 3rd pair of Hi-Tec hikers. Very comfortable right out of the box. I use them for work in the landscaping business, and they get beat up pretty bad. Last pair did not last as long as I expected. ( About 8 months) Sole could be beefed up some.

Survived the John Muir Trail!

By 

from Anchorage, AK, United States

Comments about HI-TEC Bandera Mid Waterproof Boots Men's, Bone/Brown, 11.5:

I love this boot! I am female, and bought this style to give myself more toe room. I was planning to hike the John Muir Trail, and tried several boot options from REI. I found them all to be hideously uncomfortable, and ended up wearing my Hi-Tecs for the entire, 200+ miles of the JMT. They were comfortable, stayed dry during rain and water crossings, and I never got a single blister.
