Hi-Tec Sporthike Mid Waterproof Women's Walking Boots
Walk with confidence in the Hi-Tec Sporthike Mid Waterproof Women's Walking Boots.
Soft Suede Upper
The upper of this Waterproof Walking Boot is constructed of a soft suede material that easily moves with your foot as you hike and features a soft padded collar that provides comfort. The boot offers abrasion prevention with the protective toe overlay and the rear foot moulded overlay provides cradling and support for the heel. The upper of the boots ensures dry feet with the Dri-Tec membrane that gives superior waterproofing and excellent vapour transmission. Millions of microscopic pores in this membrane allow water vapour to leave the boot without letting water droplets inside to keep you feeling comfortable and protected in wet weather.
The midsole featured is a dual density PU midsole that allows your feet to remain insulated and warm in colder temperatures and air to circulate keeping your feet cool when it is warmer outside. The midsole provides cushioning to help keep you feeling comfortable as well as at a regular temperature. The midsole and outsole are directly attached for added flexibility when walking.
M-D Traction Outsole
The outsole is designed to deliver the perfect balance of traction, protection and durability with the M-D Traction technology. Chamfered lugs allow dirt to be removed quickly improving traction on wet surfaces. The lugs are opened up in flex points to allow better flexibility and reduce foot fatigue.
