3.0 out of 5 stars Water resistant, not waterproof, 18 Nov 2009
By 
This review is from: Hi-Tec Men's Auckland WP Hiking Shoe (Apparel)
I've had a pair of these shoes for about 5 months and do quite a lot of walking, out in the countryside, across muddly fields, up hills etc. In reasonably heavy rain mine are definitely not waterproof, far from it. I quickly relegated them to walks when little or no rain is forecast and bought a new pair of leather boots - much better in bad weather or where the terrain is boggy/muddy, they are just as comfortable as the Hi_Tecs and they also breathe better, leaving my feet feeling better. These Hi-Tecs are great in good conditions and I find the thin sole a real benefit when going downhill over stony/rocky ground because they provide much better 'feel' and in my opinion are safer than a rigid sole. As long as you aware of their limitations, or are OK about walking with wet feet, these Hi-Tecs are a good buy, and in my experience it's a brand that offers good value for money.
