Hi-Tec Kids

Hi-Tec Kids Logo
1974 marked the year when Hi-Tec Sports was founded in the village of Shoeburyness, in Essex, England. The company´s original success grew from the breakthrough design and development of HI-TEC´s first ever shoe, THE HI-TEC SQUASH. That shoe remains Britain´s all time best selling sports shoe model to this day. In 1982, the Hi-Tec brand name and logo were globally launched in the hopes of becoming a major worldwide sports brand.

Hi-Tec Kids´ outdoor footwear is rugged and durable enough to take your child safely into uncharted territories. High quality hiking shoes can last through the roughest trails. Lightweight sandals are secure and breathable, bringing the nature experience safely to your child. Many of Hi-Tec´s outdoor footwear feature moisture wicking properties to stay warm and dry, even when the surrounding environment is not. Some Hi-Tec products even have reinforcements to offer increased support.

Zappos is happy to offer the Hi-Tec brand. Let Hi-Tec take your children wherever they want to roam.

Seems like a quality shoe. Awesome tread. Seem like they will be quite durable. My son said they felt a little heavy but is still very happy with them. ??

My son didn't even try these on because they moment I took them out of the box, it felt like I was holding a brick! There is no way these boots weigh 10oz as stated on the Zappos web site. More like 2 lbs! Unfortunately, I am returning these because my son would get tired very fast lugging these around in the snow on his feet.

ordered a 1/2 size bigger for my grandson he loved them said they made a lot of noise when he walked but that is because of the thickness of the sole of the shoe. It looked great on him and the fit was good with a thicker sock for winter.

Bought these for my 9-year old in June. They fit well and held up to 4 months of use as his only shoes, which is amazing for how much wear he runs around. Will definitely be buying these again.

These shoes look wonderful in picture, but when we got them, it was immediately obvious they were too heavy and too bulky. We were looking for something more light weight for our 9-year-old daughter. They might be great for hiking, but they still seem too heavy for a kid. We sent them back.

This shoe has great tread and support. Unfortunately, the tounge of the shoe is bulky and uncomfortable. It was a bummer we had to send them back.

I bought these in a 6M for my son. He wears a 6.5 in Under Armour shoes and a 5.5 in Nike. His feet seem big enough for mens sizes but they end up being too wide. Our local stores don't carry water resistant over the ankle hiking boots for kids - so glad I found these! He wore them for a full week on a hiking and camping trip to Yellowstone National Park. No blisters, no complaints. He only wore them for a few hours before the trip to break them in. The inside of the boot also has some wording about being able to remove the liner inside when he outgrows the boots to make more room and allow him to wear them longer!

Didn't even last a year. Lasted about 8 months before the sole tore off one of the shoes and the waterproofing was completely gone.

My 7 year old kept getting holes in the end of his tennis shoes from where he would play and drag his toes while riding his bike. This shoe definitely resolved that issue, but he outgrew them way faster than expected, so I think ordering up a size would have been better. The shoe laces did unravel fairly quickly, but replacing those is no big deal.

They're not pretty, that's for sure. We bought them for hiking. They fit my daughter, had room in the toe box which is usually an issue for us. They are stiff and hard to pull the laces tighter. My daughter needs help with that part, but she's not good with laces to begin with.

These do run small! My son's feet area 7 3/4" which means he should comfortably fit into a size 1...the size 2 just fits him!

I cannot fully review this item as I am not the one who wore them. However this is the second pair that I have bought for my son as part of his Boyscout uniform and hiking boots. They are true to size and seem to comfortable as he has worn them on numerous hikes without complaint, they also last very well as he outgrew the first pair before there was any sign of physical damage.

This was a real hit of a shoe. Very stylish, comfortable, great waterproofness which was really useful. However, when the shoes got really wet they took a long time to dry out. Anyway, we took off a point for durability. The shoes seemed sturdy but one fell apart (after about 8 months of mostly daily wear). The sole separated from the shoe. I guess it was near enough time to declare it outgrown, anyway, but I guess I expect about a year from a shoe.

My son loves these. They are the perfect kids' summer shoe--sturdy enough for running around, playing, and hiking, yet breathable and quick to dry. A great price point too.

DO NOT buy this brand. The bottom sole came off my son's shoe! My son only wore it a few times so this is not due to wear and tear. We bought it for him to go on an overnight camping trip with his school and he only wore a few more times after that.
