Hi-Tec

Hi-Tec Logo
Hi-Tec® Sports was founded in 1974 in the appropriately named 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, specifically designed for the then fast growing game of squash. An industry benchmark then and now, few shoes in athletic footwear history have recorded unit sales of over 18 million pairs worldwide to date. The Hi-Tec Squash shoe remains Britain's all time best selling sports shoe model to this day.

It was not until 1982 that the Hi-Tec brand name and logo were globally launched as a result of a decision to become a major worldwide sports brand. The innovative, successful global development of Hi-Tec shoes became a casebook study at a prestigious university. Today Hi-Tec is proud to report that there are over 500 Hi-Tec styles being commercialized throughout 80 countries worldwide, under the Hi-Tec Outdoor, Hi-Tec Court, Hi-Tec Golf, Hi-Tec Sport, Urban collections and Magnum shoe brands; a whole family of great products for sports and footwear enthusiasts.

My daughter is typically a 7.5 but the 8 fit great. Stylish and kept her feet dry while camping.

I followed the website advice and ordered a half size up; my normal size is 8.5 Wide and the 9 Wide fits perfectly. I like the purple accents and shoelaces but suspect the purple panel on the front of the tongue will be the first thing to wear out; it's a soft synthetic material that won't hold up to abrasion. I have not tried hiking in these boots yet, but so far they are comfortable and roomy on my feet and don't rub at the ankles. I don't feel much arch support under my foot, but the standard insoles are removable and can be replaced with orthotics if you need them. Overall, I would say this is a good buy for someone who doesn't want to pay a fortune and plans only light to moderate hiking.

These are the shoes I needed for my uniform, however, I see how they will be uncomfy in the top crease of my foot. Plus, I found a cheaper pair from Columbia that are more comfy and adequate. Great ankle support, decent cushion, returned because I didn't want to pay $100 after finding something adequate for $60.

The shoe looks great and they are light on the foot. However, the toe box felt really odd and was not comfortable.

After reading reviews I decided to take a chance and order these boots in two sizes (9 and 9.5) since I typically wear an 8.5. Both sizes were too small and felt very narrow by my toes (I have average width feet). I really liked the style so I decided to return the 9 and 9.5 and order a 10 thinking maybe the bigger size would have a little more wiggle room in the toe area. I was wrong. The only difference was the length (expected). I ultimately returned the 10 as well and ordered a different brand (not received yet). Thank you Zappos for being so great with returns!

Returning these. Loved my prior version of these boots - but the new version does not live up to the old. The old one was comfortable - I think they had something called memory foam and felt like you were walking on air. They fit well both on the foot and closed well at the top. This new version is a much stiffer feel to it (no memory foam) and they fit very loosely at the top. I may have learned to live with this - but the first time I tightened the laces one of the eyelets came right out of the leather. This brand used to be very high quality - but seems to have really gone down hill. I notice a "Michelin" name on one tag and the sole - no longer "hi-Tec" - maybe that's when the quality turned.

I bought my usual size, but when they arrived and I put them on, realized my toes were hitting the end. I returned those and got a size larger than normal. Since I plan to use them for hiking, I wanted to be sure I had plenty of room for heavy hiking socks. Nice color, sturdy feel. I have not yet worn them for any kind of hiking, but expect them to be just what I needed.

These boots are awesome! I originally ordered by usual size which is a 6.5. The boot runs a bit small in the toe box so I exchanged them for a size 7. They now fit perfectly. Heading to Arizona for some hiking a couple of weeks and I can't wait to try them out on the trail. Great fit. Lots of support and very comfortable.

They are true to size. I always order a 9 in boots by I wear an 8.5 normally. They have plenty of room for thick wool socks. They are stiff at first so plan to break them in. Very cute style and sturdy construction. Warm and waterproof. Great boot for the price.

The size seemed right on. Once I had them laced up, they were really really stiff against my lower leg. There would be no way that I could hike in them for hours on end. I ended up sending them back.

I like these lightweight hiking shoes. They are comfortable, sturdy and light weight. Be sure to order 1/2 size up as the length runs a little small.

This is my first pair of hiking boots. They were comfortable from the beginning. I tried four different pair and these hands-down be comparable boots at same price or higher. I will use these on snow and ice in MN. I wear am 8.5 shoe but got a 9 after reading reviews and it was the right decision. My foot is a bit wider with a high instep but these fit fine

I am a true 8--sometimes even a 7.5, and these hiking shoes were too short. I could feel from just a few minutes in them that a hike would be agonizing: my big toe was hitting the front like it might with shoes that were too small. Might (sorta) be tolerated with another kind of shoe, but not a hiking shoe. I might give the 8.5 a chance but otherwise these are definitely going back. These definitely run small in length.

These are at least 2 sizes too small. I will not order this brand in the future, just too much of a hassle having to keep going to a UPS store to return them.
