MATERIAL: Waterproof Leather
I’ll start by saying this review took longer than normal to hammer out, but I’m really glad I took my time with this pair of boots. I’ve been having a lot of trouble with my right foot over the last few months, more specifically planting and pushing off of it. Off first impressions I thought the boots offered great ankle support and a very roomy toe box. But the insole seemed uncomfortable and very unforgiving to me. I soon started testing another pair of boots for review from a different company and quickly realized it was my foot and not the boots. After making some adjustments for the need of my foot I was able to appreciate these boots and have a few really good adventures in them.
The Valkerie Waterproof boots from Hi-Tec make for an awesome pair of rugged boots for adventure all year round. The semi-high boot does a great job in supporting ankles and keeping your feet dry in small water crossings and snow. The support of the boot is reinforced with a nylon shank that does not stiffen the boot making it too restrictive. The heel and toe are both safe guarded with a rubber buffer for added protection. The reliable Vibram outsole go great with lugs for gripping and traction. Adding to the boot in a way that most people around you will appreciate and notice a bit more than you is the breathable bootie membrane and Ortholite sockliner, helping to reduce the stink of a sweaty foot and keep it comfortable all the while. Components for the boots lacing system are comprised of Ghilie style and rust proof metal hardware eyelets.
