4.0 out of 5 stars Well over 900 miles and still going., 27 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Hi-Tec Altitude VI Waterproof, Men's Hiking Boots (Apparel)
I bought these boots in 2008 while on a trip to California. And until Christmas 2009, used them for 10 to 20 trips including the Lakes' and short 5-8 mile walks around Wiltshire. Christmas 2009, I started using them more regularly on 10 mile walks every 2 to 3 days to the present day. So there are some good points and bad points.

Pros:
Immediately comfortable from day one
Waterproof up to ankle high - saved me a few times when the ice on boggy fields wasn't quite as thick as it looked!
Achilles cut-out reduces long term strain

Cons:
Waterproofing lasted until Summer 2010: Now, socks are well soaked just from dewy grass unless treated with dubbin each couple of walks.
Original and subsequent laces are over-worn by the eye hooks. Always carry a spare set now.

Overall...brilliant value and for my particular feet, a better fit than then Skarpa Ranger.
