Altama OTB Maritime Assault Fin Friendly Mid Cut Operators Boots
They must be for Leisure walks only.
This is my second pair in like 3years they last long and they are good for hiking and in the wet areas of hiking as well.
I originally purchased the coyote color and was impressed, as i live in the tropics and am often caught in the rain, hiking through the jungle, rivers & waterfalls, going to the beach, or on a boat.
In the water, on the beach sand, in the mud, in the boat.
These do breathe well, and the sole is nice and tacky. I can walk about on wet surfaces (back on my truck, boat deck, etc.)
Light weight and will be great for rucking and hiking.
but purpose built for swimming with fins more than walking, so I can't complain.
And after a ten mile hike, multiple water crossings, and a direct comparison to trail runners of a different brand, I find that these are absolutely amazing.
Whereas in trail runners, I felt too insulated from the trail and felt like my ankle was rolling more than I liked.
However, this was at the cost of impact cushioning, so I think I was a little more fatigued after a few miles than of I had traditional hikers or trail runners,

Rothco 8'' GI Type Jungle Boot
They pinched my toes until I got them sopping wet and hiked through a bog.
It's like walking on concrete,
I like them a lot, they were made for walking and I use them for work boots, very good at the end of the day
Great for hiking or messy masonry jobs.
No cushioning and the flexible soft sole means these are terrible for walking on pavement.
I also really appreciate the ankle support when hiking.
I haven't found any boots for this price that I like more for hiking.
While the quality and durability has yet to be seen I am satisfied with the product thus far and will edit after my first true hiking test.
Already wore them out running today, washed em off and stripped em so she can get a good shine on em.
Who knows.. Soaked mine in hot water and went on a hike.
