Waterproof, comfortable, supportive, good traction … qualities an outdoorsman wants from his footwear. Hi-Tec’s Ravus Vent shoe and Altitude OX Chelsea boot feature these and more.

“A grippy M-D Traction outsole and supportive EVA footbed on the Ravus Vent work together to absorb bumps on uneven terrain, while the durable fork shank helps to stabilise the foot with each step,” explains Hi-Tec. The outsole provides grip both up- and downhill. The shoe also has a suede upper with synthetic trim and breathable mesh underlay for a secure and comfortable fit.

Altitude OX Chelsea

Altitude OX Chelsea is a “great looking men’s outdoor crossover boot,” says the brand. It has a Michelin outsole and XLR8 midsole for tough terrain, as well as an OrthoLite Impressions insole that creates a customised and comfortable fit. The boot has a waterproof Buffalo leather upper for durable comfort, and i-shield technology that repels water and dirt and is resistant to stains.

Both feature the Dri-Tec waterproof membrane, which keeps feet dry, but is also breathable.
