Different fit From the Same Brand Boot a few Years Ago.
on March 13, 2014
I used to buy Hi-Tec boots all the time - I am an avid hiker and need a good boot, and Hi-Tec makes a good boot, including this one. However, the sizing has changed and they no longer carry a size that fits my feet. I am a 6.5 with a skinny ankle and wide toe spread. This size in Hi-Tec used to fit perfectly, but now it is at least half a shoe size longer (compared with my old boot with same size) and the toe-box is too skinny. Ordering a size up or down will not work. Wish they came in a 6W - that would be a perfect solution. I unfortunately had to return.
That said, if your feet are long and skinny, the sizing may be true for you, and in that case, this might be a very good boot for you. The construction, weight, and grip all appear high quality, and other than the sizing, appeared quite comfortable.
