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.

These are great for wide feet, especially bunions - I have four pair of wide hiking boots in my closet and only these fit (and they are M not W). They aren't Vasques, they don't have great ankle support - more like sneakers that look like hiking boots... but they really lasted last time I had a pair and they are comfy and you can't beat the price. Great Value.

Attractive hiking shoes. I buy most shoes in an 8.5, but athletic shoes in a 9; however, these felt a bit short. Returned.

These hiking boots are well constructed and provide very good lateral support and protection. They are a bit stiff but that is because they are brand new. They should be more flexible in a few wearings.

The issue is that the lace hooks keep coming off. Returned the first pair after the hook came off on the first time wearing. Second pair made it two months. Not good

When I first put the shoes on, I thought they were quite large. But, after lacing them up and walking a bit, they fit perfectly. I do believe a better insert is in my future, however, as with most new shoes. They are quite comfy and I've walked at least 10-12 miles in the first couple days. There are no hot spots or irritated areas. The only thing is, the shoe's toe box ends in more of a point. It would be better if the toe end was more curved as most feet are. Overall, I am happy with my purchase and, as this is my second Hi-Tec shoe, I'm liking Hi-Tec!

Fit was perfect, size was perfect. I walk in these a lot and they are comfortable. I plan to take them on trips to Europe, as they are not terribly heavy (but they provide good support).

I purchased this pair of Hi-Tec Ravus Vent Low WP hiking shoes because I previously (more than 25 years ago) owned a pair of Hi-Tec Sierra Lite hiking boots and was very pleased with how those boots felt and how they performed - given the relatively low price. My shoe size varies between a US 9.5 and 10, and I ordered these in a 10 to accommodate a thicker sock in colder months; the size-10 fit seems just right. This pair of Ravus Vent WP shoes arrived as scheduled and in their branded box, packed within a sturdy Zappos box. These hiking shoes are comfortable right out of the box, and, if history holds true with the Hi-Tec brand, they should become even more comfortable rather soon with some wear. I can't yet comment on the waterproof properties, but with the shoes' gusseted tongue, Hi-Tec's quality, and my own common sense and reasonable expectations during wear, I imagine they should perform just fine. Cannot beat the price point for a well-made, sturdy-yet-comfortable pair of hiking shoes.

This is a great looking hiking boot. It was too narrow for my foot. It felt like my outer 3 toes were being crushed. Otherwise, I loved the color and how it laced up at the ankle. I had to return due to small fit. Will try and find a wider width boot.

I have only hiked in them once, and worn them around my office to break them in for a couple of days. I know they have to be broken in more. There was little arch support, so I replaced their insole with my orthodics. That was a bit better.

For the price, these are okay. They're a little stiff and thick around the ankle.

I've worn either a 9 1/2 or 10 for 30 years and just purchased a pair of shoes locally size 9 1/2 that fit fine. As I know cheap shoes like these tend to run smaller for some unexplained reason I ordered a 10. My toes were smashed so I'm guessing that while the shoes were clearly marked size 10 they are really an 8 1/2 - 9. Sent them back the next day.

Seemed very well made. Comfortable and true to size. Very roomy toe box. I tried several brands and really liked the Hi-Tec. If I only had one pair of hiking boots these would have been them. I ended up selecting another pair because I was specifically looking for something light weight and these were a bit heavier than others.

These were way too big and too roomy. Even if I went down a size they would be too clunky and heavy for me tolerate.

I was afraid the shoes would be too big. I wear a 7 but 8 was the smallest you had. I am wearing thick socks and they seem to be perfect. Thanks for quick delivery!!
