Conquering 50 Peaks should make fields in Somerset a 'walk in the park' but no. Whilst these boots are a good comfortable fit they're not up to what should be a simple task.
Most days I walk and jog for half an hour around flat dairy pasture in Somerset. My 50 Peaks by Hi-Tec are waterproof for a few minutes but my feet are often wet and muddy by the time I get home - mud seeps through the boot rather than slops over the top. Even when the soil is dry and the only moisture is the dew in the grass, the feet start to feel wet after only 10 minutes.
Were I Mr Universe then I could understand why during the first few weeks of ownership four of the eight lace hooks pulled off whilst tying laces. Clearly, there is a design / manufacturing issue here. I've successfully pop rivetted the hooks back on.
The soles have virtually no grip in mud.
The sole of the right book allowed the tip of a long, thick thorn to penetrate through to my foot. Fortunately, the soles are so thick that the foot was scratched rather than impalled.
The laces frequently undo but a double knot usually lasts the half-hour.

Can't recommend these and expected much more for the £50 paid for them and from the manufacturer.

I've been wearing these boots for a year now, but not the same pair. I've got through three pairs, so I reckon they tend to last for about 400 miles. Which for a pair of boots that costs £30 is quite good (less than 10p/mile). What originally attracted me to them was the soles where made of a denser material than other boots I've tried, which are composed of a thin hard rubber layer over a soft spongy layer (and cost more than twice what these boots cost). With the other boots once the hard rubber layer wears away the sole rapidly becomes unusable. These boots have a more hardwearing sole that lets them last for longer, and I find the uppers and the soles tend to wear out at about the same rate. I find them a comfortable fit and have only got my feet wet once in them (after a prolonged outing through wet grass). So for the moment I'm replacing them as they wear out with the same type of boot (I've just ordered my 4th pair).

Excellent quality and materials at an excellent price. A Bit narrower than I find Hi Tecs to be but hopefully will stretch width wise a bit. If not - at that price it is no great loss. A good rigid boot sole which provides surety on rough or rocky terrain and the waterproof elements so far seem to be up to the standard. The ankle suppot is quite high but not uncomfortable or chafing in use. Questionable element has to be the quality of the laces - in common with other manufacturees though.

Excellent buy at this price.

This is my seventh or eighth pair of Hi-Tec boots (Hit-Tec Recess and Hi-Tec V-lite Sierra) in as many years and I have always rated them very highly for comfort which seems the most important quality in a walking boot. They are nearly wide enough for my XXwide feet unlike most boots obtainable in the UK although I've recently noticed a tendency to reduce the widths in some newer versions of the boots with no corresonding change of type name. I walked from Land's End to John O'Groats in a previous pair (two pairs actually - the first split after 1000 miles)and the only criticism has been a total lack of waterproofness, even before the flexure points started to crack. However my recently acquired 50-peaks Densmores have shown a certain degree of waterproofness which has been a real boon in the recent floods. The downside has been a certain loss of comfort - I presume that waterproof material isn't quite so stretchy, flexible and comfy as the previous non-waterproof versions. As in the past I have replaced the fitted insoles with cheap Sorbothane Cush'n step (not the heavy, expensive red insoles) which give better foot protection against hard surfaces. Previously I thought you had to pay over £100 for waterproof boots (Gore-Tex fabric or leather) but these are at an excellent price. At this price it really doesn't matter if they peg out after a year or less than 1000 miles. I've bought another pair in readiness, before Hi-Tec change their design yet again.
Addendum: After about four months of daily use, these boots started to leak but I'm pleased they lasted that long - I subsequently bought three other pairs with increasing difficulty, as a big problem with Hi Tec is that they never do more than a limited edition of each type before changing designs. Since their design life is so limited it means that you're unlikely to find a new pair when the old ones fade away and have to start researching all over again!

Colour Name: Smokey Brown/Taupe/SaffronSize: 7 UK
Bought some late 2012 for the winter. Intending to be worn around town as winter shoes etc or at best, on a wet towpath. Not exactly strenuous activity for hiking boots. Claimed to be waterproof, under £40, where can you go wrong ?? Well, the first pair creaked (both shoes) like an old coffin as if the stitching was not quite tight enough. Then developed a split across the big toe of the right shoe. Took them back to Yeomans where purchased and was given another pair, no questions asked, great service. Right, the second pair dont creak at all like the first pair and after wearing for a similar period, havent seemed to show any signs of splitting. I reckon I had a duff pair first time round.
After a couple of outings in the wet and some gentle cycling,(in town on a rainy day) I can vouch they are not really waterproof at all, despite any claims made anywhere. It would seem small puddles can get your feet wet quite easily in these. This went for both pairs I had so really if you want or need waterproof hiking boots, you are going to have to spend a bit more.
Now, they are very comfortable, happen to fit me well, didnt really need breaking in, do well at being on your feet all day / walking lots. Not forgetting they were cheap. I was advised on Hi-Tec by some very outdoors-y friends of mine who do a lot outdoor activities and know about this type of stuff. I was advised at all costs to avoid Karrimor boots by everyone as they apparently fall apart and are in no way waterproof......well, having experienced both of those phenomena in a matter of a few short months with both of my pairs of Hi Tecs I put it down to budget. You definitely get what you pay for.
Sorry this isnt an in depth technical review of outdoor shoes from an expert but this is how they 'worked' for me. When they are knackered, Ill buy better boots.
Edited add-on Jan 2014 : Both shoes have started creaking as per the first pair almost as bad as the Black Pearl !!!! Lets see if they split now.
