Hi-Tec Altitude Lite I WP Walking Boots The Altitude Lite is a versatile men's walking boot which is lightweight and packed with technology. It combines waterproof suede and nylon mesh in a durable, breathable and comfortable upper. From a walk in the park to a tough hiking challenge, these men's boots are ready when you are
The upper of the Hi-Tec Altitude Lite I WP Walking Boots are constructed with a waterproof suede and abrasion-resistant, breathable mesh. Ventilation throughout the boots ensure the feet with a cool and dry foot environment. Also fitted with Dri-Tec which gives your superior waterproofing and excellent vapour transmission to maximise your performance in even the wettest environment. Millions of microscopic pores in the Dri-Tec membrane allow water vapour to escape without allowing water droplets in, keeping feet dry and comfortable. Another technology embedded into the upper is i-shield which is an invisible protective layer that repels water and dirt with ease. It ensures the upper stays clean with its oil and dirt resistance, while also staying lightweight because i-shield does not absorb water.
The upper also has a gillie lacing system which ensures a secure and snug fit, while the gusseted tongue helps keep out debris and loose terrain. Lastly, protecting your feet while walking on rocky terrain, an abrasion toe cap and heel is fitted to the shoe.
To provide cushioning, the midsole is fitted with a moulded EVA midsole platform and an Ortholite Sockliner. The Ortholite Sockliner provides comfort from the inside out by offering the ultimate in comfort, cushioning and breathability. They solve the most common in-shoe problems by creating a cooler, drier and healthier foot environment with innovative technology.
The outsole is fitted with a nylon shank which provides a lightweight, flexible and supportive feel, so you'll be able to move more easily with it in place. It will ensure just enough bend to create a more natural movement in your feet, and there's plenty of support to help ease some stress in your arches. Made with an MDT outsole which is designed to deliver the perfect balance of traction, protection and durability. The chamfered lugs allow dirt to be released quickly, improving traction on wet and other types of terrain. Forward lugs are angled to encourage propulsion whilst rear lugs are angled to encourage breaking. Lugs are open up in flex points to allow better flex and reduce foot fatigue.
