After 6 years and many hundreds of kilometers of happiness I donated my trusty old boots to someone less fortunate.
So now it is time for a new pair of boots. The obvious replacement is the newest iteration of the same boots: [https://www.hi-tec.co.za/product/altitude-ox-i-wp?variant=1002988](https://www.hi-tec.co.za/product/altitude-ox-i-wp?variant=1002988) especially since they are on special.
Can anyone give me a reason to buy something else?
I have ankle issues and my shoes need to be specially modified thanks to a shattered femur 12 years ago. For this reason I want the best shoes possible. Cost doesn’t matter too much, but the shoes have to be lightweight.
I admit that I am a huge Hi-tec fanboy due to decades of positive experiences. (One of only 2 brand names I openly endorse)
