Very comfortable but not waterproof
by Cliff Dean
Exasperating! The most comfortable boots I have owned (over many years’ walking), which I attribute to the RGS, light, good grip BUT the first pair wore into a hole in the heel linings within a few weeks, giving me a blister, so I returned to the store (fifty mile round... Read More
trip ) and exchanged them. Now, after a few months, I find the lining has gone again but worse, the right boot lets in water. Left foot fine, right foot wet, even after a bit of dewy grass.
I have cleaned and proofed these boots assiduously, so it must be a fault in the construction.
Is there pair of these boots out there somewhere that is not faulty? I would go even for a third pair on grounds of comfort! Hide
On the money!

|Huge fan of walking footwear but always bought Timberland in the past. I must say these are by far the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. The Vibram sole and RGS system really do make a difference. 5*|
Great for the first eight weeks....But..
by Richard Hewison
Grat boots with Vibram soles that are much better grip than your other HiTec Boots, I paricularly appreciate the toecap that protects this vulnerable leather, in your ordinary boots walking in wet grass quickly makes them look uncared for and starts to let water in. These boots are. Light weight,... Read More
breathable, supportive and waterproof for 8 weeks.
Then In spite of careful slow drying and regular teatment with NIKWAX footwear cleaning Gel and NIXWAX Fabric and Leather Proof.... the leather started to crack where it flexes, just behind the toecap, water gets in and the top layer of leather scabs off. This when they are only 15 weeks old...
Needs some better leather and/or suggest a suitable treatment that does not effect the breathability.but stops the cracking.
RESPONSE FROM HI-TEC:
We're really concerned to read your review. This has been a hugely popular style this year and we've had so much good feedback, particularly complimenting the high quality of these boots.
I have asked our Customer Services Team to get in touch with you to investigate this further. I hope you will leave another review for us when the matter is resolved.

Looks the part, acts the part.
by Craig Garrington
I purchased these boots as some colleagues and myself were planning to climb mount Snowdon and I was in need of a replacement pair.
My initial draw was the look as I feel they really do look the part; rugged and durable. This ended up being exactly what they were... Read More when it got to climbing Snowdon. They were also really comfortable, I had been wearing them for about 9 hours altogether and didn't get a single blister/cut. I even managed a little trail running in them due to my confidence in the boots.
I was also sold on the features of the boots, the rolling gait and vibram soles really made a huge difference. I can also confirm the waterproofing works, I had tested them out in some muddy bogs over Hadleigh Castle and then through numerous puddles and even the lakes in Snowdonia.
I plan to use these for some more adventures this year with a trip to Scafell Pike and Zion National Park in Utah.
