Hi-Tec Falcon Hiking shoes,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hi-Tec Men's Falcon Waterproof Hiking Boot (Apparel)
I bought these shoes because it is closing in on the rainy season in Oregon and walking my dog Khloe takes me off of the sidewalk and into the bushes as she thinks that she is a hunter. These shoes are nice enough looking for and comfortable for daily wear. I wear a size 11 medium and it is accurate in size. My only complaint, which seems to be in all new high ankle support shoes that I own is that my left ankle rubs against the side even double socked. It seems to get less as the shoe is breaking in, but it it still there after a week. It is not severe, but it is noticeable, especially after an hour walk. I presume that I will not notice it in a month. The shoe walks straight with very little side give which means that it won't cause me to twist my ankle when stepping on rocks. It has only rained once since I got them but they gave good non slip support, even in the wet grass which surprised me. I definitely recommend these shoes, next Spring will be the true tale after a full Fall and Winter usage.
This has been a rather dry season here but I have noticed that water is starting to seep through the seams in puddles now as the shoes wear and probably would not recommend them now. Therefor I have lowered my rating on the shoes. I still think they would be fine if I use a rubber sealant around the seams, but that sould have been done at the factory

How has this held up? What can you report about how waterproof it has been through puddles, etc?

The shoes have basically held up fine and I still have good traction on wet grass, however, there is starting to be a water seepage walking through puddles, not a lot, but enough to notice.
