Hi-Tec, based in the appropriately-named Essex village of Shoeburyness, are world-famous for their hiking boots, sports shoes and snow boots.
Their first successful foray into the sports shoe industry in the 1970s saw the development of a dedicated shoe for the then fast-growing game of squash – which to date has sold more than 18 million pairs and is still a best-seller in over 80 countries.
Durable, functional hiking boots and walking shoes followed, and the company’s rapid rise and development on the world stage was such a success it led them to becoming a casebook study at the Harvard Business School.
Many Hi-Tec hiking boots use revolutionary Ion-Mask technology - originally developed for the military to protect soldiers from chemical attack – which has become an industry benchmark, heralding a quantum leap in waterproof footwear. By altering the fabric at a molecular level, Ion-Mask prevents water and other liquids from penetrating the surface of the boot, keeping your feet drier and more comfortable in the process.
