These boots are crap. Despite their looks, and comfort (the two main factors contributing to my purchase), they turned out to be very poorly manufactured. After 3 or 4 days backpacking on the Torres Del Paine circuit in Chile, they succumbed to the wet conditions and began to allow my feet to get wet - not a problem really. However, one day after the boots had been good and wet (leaving them to dry didn't help much) a lace-rivet fell out. Another one loosened up, and then on the last day of the trip a 3rd one fell out. In addition, the one of the boots laces got its first layer ripped, so that it slid down over a lower one and collected in a kind of thick bunch leaving about a foot-long section of narrow lace exposed. I don't know how Hi-Tec customer support is however, as I have still not gotten around to sending them back. But for a hiking boot that will last you more than a couple of days look elsewhere.
