Comfy shoes but did not last long
|I have used them on daily basis for work in lab and in office. Comfy shoes but I did not last long (few months). I have contacted Hi-tech, and they have exchange the faulty pair and took different model.|
More suited to smooth trails.
I bought 2 pairs of these shoes at the same time and they are great in most respects: good fit, lightweight, multi-terrain outsole. The only issue I have is that the forefoot protection is not very good. After only a month of wearing the shoes a couple of times a... Read More
week, the midsole under the forefoot has gone so soft that you can feel every stone/rock underfoot which can be very painful. I am predominantly a midfoot striker, run at a decent pace and am certainly not a heavy runner but on stonier/rocky sections, these shoes can be very uncomfortable under the forefoot.
Stick to smooth trails/road mix and these shoes are great (and they still look like new after several months running in all weathers)
RESPONSE FROM HI-TEC:
Thanks for your review. I'm glad to hear you find these to be a good fit and suitable for all weathers. I'm sorry to hear they are not comfortable on stonier terrains. I will certainly pass this feedback on for future consideration. In the meantime, if you decide to purchase a new pair, I would strongly recommend the V-Lite Infinity Trail. It's waterproof and lightweight like the pairs you currently have, but features a Vibram high performance outsole which provides ultimate traction and protection out on the trails. http://www.hi-tec.com/uk/vlite-infinity-trail-blue-grey-limoncello.html .
You may also like the Nazka 5.0 which features a dual density midsole promoting a midfoot/forefoot strike rather than a heel strike - http://www.hi-tec.com/uk/men-s-v-lite-nazka-5-0-black-clementine.html
I hope this helps. If you would ever like advice on the best pair of Hi-Tec boots or trainers to suit your needs, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Services Team or use our LiveChat function :-)

Nice shoes but rubbish laces
by A White
Quite comfy shoes with great traction on the soles but the laces frayed due to the metal eyelets in under 6 weeks. I then struggled to find very thin laces that would fit. I tried contacting Hi Tec but they couldn't sell me replacements so I was left with shoes... Read More
without laces for a while.
When replacements came I found there was a fault inside the metal eyelet and the lace frayed again. ANOTHER payment for super thin round laces and some careful tinkering and I have usable trainers.
Point is - nice trainers unless something goes wrong and then you're on your own - fine if you pay £20 for trainers but I paid full price for these. Hide
