Is there certain stores that carry hi-tecs? I had a pair many years ago and it was really nice. Used em for hiking and paintball at the time... super comfy.

All I can say is to check out Hi-Tec's website to see their lineup. I'm not all that familiar with their various models. I know they have waterproof, and some are lightweight, but I don't recall seeing any with a toe cap.

You can often find them at discount sporting good chains and I think you can order directly from their web site.

you still swear by hi tecs

or was it just that one great sale several years ago

I never swore by them. I just said they consistently offer better value than the pricier brands. I still have a 3 year old pair of Hi Tecs that are as comfortable as any pair of Merrells or Keens I've owned and holding up nicely.


Full disclosure: I'm not a toe dragger, so I can't speak to that. Never been had issue with any shoes I've owned.

If you can get a "more premium" brand for less, do it. But I really haven't found Keens or Merrells to last longer, or be more comfortable. I'm all about a quality hiker at the best price.

All good stuff, thanks.

I honestly don't know how my shoes tore like they did. I didn't think I drug my toe and it doesn't seem like I do so I don't get it...I guess FH I likely do but I primarily throw BH.

Yeah, I suppose it doesn't take much on the rhfh toe drag.

I must twist my foot weird or something on rhbh

ive had merrells rip on that spot with mostly just walking on them they were that type of fabric too

i think with the walking motion it naturally weakens it

If you're patient or plan ahead, you can usually find Adidas stuff on sale. Their goretex seems to be better than most other shoes I've tried (salomon, merrell, keen, etc) I picked up 2 pair of Tracerocker GTX last summer for like $130 shipped. They've held up very well so far, helps that I've been rotating pairs to extend the life of them. Right now they have CMTK GTX on sale for $77/pair, which is also pretty good.

I'm not a fan of the swift which everyone seems to love, those run pretty narrow and don't work for my feet.

I was just joking around, heh.

Looks like they have a 25% code right on the site at the moment, GIFT25

Not waterproof, but they have goretex trailrunners too.

Oh, the above beat me to it.
