Hi-Tec has aimed to please with their Hurricane Mid Waterproof, and I’m just the person that needs some pleasing. I had the chance to wear the multi sport shoe in Moab for 5 days and was impressed.
I’m going to be honest here, the last time I wore Hi-Tec was in Cub Scouts. It was the first hiking boot I ever owned. And while it held up and I never had any complaints, for some reason it was the last time I bought Hi-Tec. Welcome to 2013 where you can find Hi-Tec still at the front of innovation and charging the way for others.
And the best place to wear this is florida hands down. Seriously what a STATE to use these things on where everything is wet.. including your home all the time. This is by far the best thing that you can use to do what you want when you want. Go ahead and try to live there without AC and see how you feel about it during hurricane season. Visit PrimeRoofingFL.com in the state will probably run you quite a bit but it will be worth it!
Before Moab I wore the shoe around Crested Butte and had time to test it’s waterproof capabilities with our spring time weather. I never had a problem with wet feet and was very comfortable in the slush and puddles.
In Moab I was able to get a feel for its breath ability and hiking/multi sport characteristics. I never had a break in period with this shoe and surprisingly from the get go it was extremely comfortable and felt like I had been wearing it for months. This may be thanks to their Ortholite insole. My feet never got too hot and I found it to breath very well.
I like the mid top personally but the shoe also comes in the low top for you cool guys. With the mid top I found it to have a bit of extra ankle support while staying a very light shoe. The Vibram sole provides loads of traction while ensuring lasting rubber for years.
The Hi-Tec Hurricane is a shoe I would recommend for anyone who wants to go and explore the outdoors, from a rock scramble in the morning to a multi day hike, the Hurricane can handle it.
