The outsoles are made of carbon rubber MDT, a material commonly found on the soles of running shoes. This is a solid rubber infused with carbon additives, which makes the soles harder to the touch than those of many other hiking boots. You'll find that they're extremely durable on both hard surfaces (like rock and concrete) and soft surfaces (like grass and sand). The toes and heels also have wide abrasion zones to protect your feet and increase the life of the boots. Inside the soles, steel shanks provide excellent stability and keep the shoes breaking at the appropriate place, even when the terrain is harsh and unpredictable.
Every person who's ever worn hiking boots knows that wet socks can ruin your happiness for the day and your feet for a week. One misstep in the morning can cause blisters and have you limping up the trails or, even worse, heading back to camp ahead of the others. Hi-Tec's 40144 Men's Dark Taupe Natal Waterproof Hiking Boots have a waterproof suede and mesh upper, so if you slip off a rock while crossing a stream, your feet will still be dry when you get to the other side. Even the brass hardware on these shoes resists water--they're rustproof so the grommets and eyelets last longer, won't break off, and won't cause extra friction on the laces.
And comfortable! These hiking boots have a moisture-wicking lining that gets sweat away from your feet and keeps them dry. The Comfort-Tec contoured sockliner helps with this as well. At the tops of the boots, like on hi-top sneakers, you'll find soft padded collars that minimize rubbing and protect your ankles.
But we need to warn you, if you like being the guy who hangs out at camp all day, puttering around and drinking beer while the others trek 15 miles and paddle 10, you might not want to buy these boots. They're so comfortable you won't be able to honestly complain. And those blisters you used to be able to show as proof that you'd better "stay back here and pick up from breakfast"? You won't have them anymore. Hi-Tec's 40144 Men's Dark Taupe Natal Waterproof Hiking Boots do the job they're made for.

Great boot for the money...
By: Ron East
These with Alpaca hiking socks were great on our recent 50mile trek. Though the week was very wet the boots kept dry inside until water wet over the top, but even then a tight tie on the laces kept the lower part of the boot pretty dry. No sloshing around.
Why Choose Working Person? Let Our Customers Explain!
I want to express my praise and appreciation for the people in your organization that provided me with exceptional service today. First is a young lady in your Customer Service Dept. She is a very strong asset to your company as she is the first impression of the company for a customer. She did an excellent job in answering my concerns and helping me figure out the best way to handle the problem. Second, but not least, is another young lady in your return goods department. She is a breath of fresh air for a customer to deal with. She is heading up things so I get my replacement coat in time for my trip.
In closing I want tell you that it's very refreshing to know that there are still companies out there that have a sense of pride in what they do, how they treat their customers and are willing to provide "real" customer service. You make me proud to be a Hoosier. Please be sure and pass this along to both ladies for me and give them a raise, they deserve it!
