Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 20, 2010
When summer heat in the lowlands inches from slightly uncomfortable to largely insufferable, head for the hills in a pair of Hi-Tecs! Onlineshoes.com and Hi-Tec are holding a contest that's sure to appeal to seasoned trekkers and novice hikers alike: Rather than give away one pair of shoes to four winners, one lucky contestant will receive a pair of Hi-Tec hiking boots or shoes of their choice plus shoes for three more individuals, allowing them to hit the trail with friends, parents, children or extended family members. Check out the selection of Hi-Tec footwear to scope out favorite styles and read on to find out how to enter the contest.
Founded in 1974 in England, Hi-Tec went global in 1982, and to this day they stand by their core commitment to authenticity and reliability, providing lightweight, comfortable athletic and outdoor footwear. To demonstrate the enduring quality of Hi-Tec shoes, for three years in a row, Onlineshoes.com and Hi-Tec have teamed up for a summertime hike to popular Rattlesnake Ridge in the Cascade Mountains outside Seattle. (No actual rattlesnakes were harmed—or seen, for that matter—during this team-building exercise.) Their adventure is recounted in this short Hi-Tec hiking video: Spurred on by their comfortable Hi-Tec footwear and the promise of refreshing libations at the end of the journey, the hardy band of Onlineshoes.com employees braved unseasonably cool conditions to take in the still-breathtaking vistas at the top.
One of the men's hiking shoes featured for the Rattlesnake Ridge climb was the Hi-Tec Propulsion. This versatile, high-value men's hiking shoe boasts a performance equal to other brands' outdoor styles that clock in twice the cost or more, and transitions from urban settings to wilderness trails with ease. Like the Propulsion, the featured women's hiking shoe, the Hi-Tec Multiterra Vector, has a breathable suede and mesh upper, a cushioning, shock-absorbing EVA midsole, a grippy multi-directional rubber outsole and a surprisingly low price point.
However, sometimes conditions, climate and time of year call for a more weather-ready boot. For male hikers looking for the support of an ankle boot—or mid-boot—at a highly competitive price, the Hi-Tec Natal Mid WP simply can't be beat. This seam-sealed Hi-Tec hiking boot has a suede and mesh upper that's breathable yet waterproof, with an angled, generously padded collar, a durable lace closure, a protective toe bumper and a multi-directional carbon rubber outsole that offers traction on a range of terrain.
