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.

Hi-Tec almost singularly focuses on developing attractive, comfortable, lightweight, high-quality shoes at a fair "true value" price. Hi-Tec applies high technology build processes and leverage innovative materials to ensure the ultimate in comfort, whether your needs are performance-oriented, or more leisure wear centric.

Hi-Tec is: easy, friendly, contemporary, comfortable, and accessible.

I love these boots and the fact that they have great support, comfort and are actually WATERPROOF in the wet Northwest! My only complaint why I didn't give a 5 for the style is that it would be good to have the two top lace eyelets a bit farther apart for it is tight to get the lace between the two eyelets. Otherwise I am so happy I found the Hi-Tec brand again and I just ordered a lower hiking boot style. They are reasonably priced and much better than a brand that I didn't have a great experience with that was twice the cost . I also LOVE Zappos' Customer Service Support! They are awesome and that is hard to find now!

I bought the boots a full size up from what I normally wear. Not sure if the heaviness of the socks had an effect on the fit, but the larger size definitely felt better for my toes. Overall, it's a great, comfortable hiking boot and I look forward to wearing them.

Hubby bought these as work boots for the farm. He's worn Hi-Tec's for many years, and this model didn't disappoint. Not too heavy, speed laces, good gripping sole, waterproof - meets all his criteria.

At first glance I liked these boots, they seem decently made. I ordered a half size larger than I usually wear as the reviews said they ran small. This would typically give me 3/4 a size larger than I actually wear. Intial try on seemed roomy enough in length but had no arch support at all. I need arch support so inserted insoles which seemed to eat up all the length. I'm not sizing up as I fear an increase in width that narrowish foot can't handle.

I had to look a long time to find a work boot with all the features I needed, and finally found them at Zappos. I needed a hiking type boot, waterproof, good sturdy sole, and - most important - speed laces. I'm happy.

It always takes time to get boots to flex over my rather large ankles so initial comfort is not all that great. However, I will massage the boots a lot to loosen up the tightness. Impressed with Zappos

I bought these strictly for the waterproof feature. I ordered a size up, and a width wider, I use an orthotic. Was worried my toes would be sore, but not at all. I've used them for a week, through water and mud on 10 acre 30 minute walks. Live on a drumlin, lots of steep climbs and descents. After lacing properly, they've worked out perfectly. The purple is real 'purdy', but I'm used to the wider toe box of my Keens, only complaint. No discomfort with the narrower toe, just the look of it.

I was looking for more ankle support when doing extensive yard work and these fit the bill. They were a bit narrow in the toe box but since I ordered a half size larger (to accommodate a thin orthotic), they turned out fine.

I tried these hiking boots at home for about 5 min, they felt super comfortable. However, I went on a hike and got blisters on both ankles, the material on the back of the shoe is stiff and irritated my skin. I do not recommend them. I'm stuck with a useless pair of boots!

These were pretty comfortable without any break in. I usually wear a size 8. I ordered these in an 8.5 first, but my toes were too close to the front. I reordered in a 9. They were slightly big, but thick socks will take care of that. I wore them in light snow and rain. They had good traction and no moisture entered the boots.

I ordered my typical size of 9.5 and it fit perfectly. No breaking in necessary. I have worn them in wet grass at the river and they have kept my feet dry. Happy with the purchase.

The hooks at the top for your laces broke off within two times of wearing these boots. I took them to a shoe repair shop and had all four hooks replaced for something more substantial. Other than that, I enjoy these boots. The color is nice and the shape makes my feet look small.

I liked the look of the shoe, but this has got to be the stiffest sole I've ever had on my feet. There is absolutely no give to the sole. Your foot stays totally flat, with no bend. I could barely walk up and down the few stairs in my home. Perhaps there is a break in period, but I am returning, as I 've never had this experience with shoes. I know hiking shoes/boots should be somewhat stiff, to give support, but this is over the top!

My last pair of Hi-tecs just wore out after 7 years. As a farmer I wear boots in mud, water, and in very rough conditions. These new ones look and feel like putting on the same shoes without the dings I have made. Wonderful, and hard working shoes. Retirees on left, new guys on right.

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.
