Hi-Tec Spring and Summer Highlights

Altitude Lite

Mother Nature may not be doing her part right now, but when you’re ready to hit the trail, Hi-Tec has some great footwear options for the whole family. Here are a few of our favorites.

Altitude Lite i WP (available for men, women, and kids)

Function meets fashion for the whole family. The subtle contrasting colors may catch your eye, but your feet will appreciate all the features and technology inside and out. With an upper made from a mix of suede and mesh, it’s waterproof, breathable, and will stand up to plenty of long hours on the trail. Inside, you’ll find a Dri-Tec membrane. This breathable membrane allows the transfer of moisture in one direction only, away from your feet. In addition, there’s i-shield technology which also helps to repel water and dirt, keeping you dry and comfortable all day. If that wasn’t enough, an OrthoLite® sockliner plus EVA midsole provide the cushion you need over longer hikes. That’s a lot of bang for the buck when you consider the MSRP is a modest $90.00


Men’s V-LITE Walk-Lite Witton

Men’s V-LITE Walk-Lite Witton
Like a crossover SUV, the Walk-Lite Witton isn’t out of place on a semi-formal date, or tackling some unpaved trails. Of course, instead of plastic cladding over steel, it’s got a good looking leather and suede upper. In the office or on the trail, the Vibram® RollinGait System allows for the natural articulation of the foot, resulting in sure traction under all conditions. Available with solid or two-tone colors at no extra charge, the MSRP is $100.00


Ezee‘z Shandal

Ezee‘z Shandal (men and women’s)

Is it a shoe or a sandal? The Ezee’z Shandal is the best of both worlds! It’s got an upper made from a high performance fabric, plus a stroballed EVA footbed. There’s also an ultra-light V-LITE EVA midsole, and an aggressive but flexible outsole. This makes them as cool as a sandal on the hottest days, yet with far more traction and protection than a rubber sandal could ever offer. Perhaps another cool feature is the MSRP  of $60.00


Kids Meridian JR

Kids Meridian JR

Given the speed at which kids outgrow shoes, it’s hard to justify a dedicated pair of hikers. So Hi-Tec added their unique Big-Fit System to the Meridian Mid JR. This removable volume adjuster insole allows them to grow with your kid’s feet, so they last a little longer. Of course, they’re not just a great cycling or trail shoe for little hikers, as they can be worn every day, with jeans or shorts. And they come with a wallet-friendly MSRP of $50.00
