The Hi-Tec Altitude IV JR WP is a great little boot that mirrors a traditional walking boot. A leather upper with a waterproof lining is built onto an excellent sole unit that has plenty of support and deep lugs. The toe box is stiff too. This feels ideal for a wide variety of hill terrain. The price is superb too. But the ankle cuff is relatively low so it offers less protection than some. As it is a leather upper it will need a little more aftercare than a synthetic upper.

The Hi-Tec Altitude IV JR WP is a superb child’s boot at a superb price and ideal for any youngster heading to the hills. It won ‘Best Value’ in our review.
