I originally bought the Hi-Tec Altitude IV for hiking, for which it worked well. Its true test of worth came when I began wearing it to work at a wildlife sanctuary in Florida. It has good traction to keep me from falling off tall, wobbly ladders. That these boots are waterproof is a necessity during Miami's seemingly endless rainstorms; I can walk through deep puddles and mud without slowing down. Not to be overlooked is the Altitude IV's tough exterior - helpful when a North American River Otter decides to bite down because it smells like the fish you just dropped on your foot!
