ion-mask technology is a breakthrough in surface enhancement. It works at a molecular level, binding invisibly to the surfaces of products, giving them an extraordinary ability to repel most liquids. The benefits are as clear as the technology itself. With minimal consumption and negligible waste, ion-mask enhancement represents a quantum leap in footwear technology.
ion-Mask Waterproof (WPi)
All products featuring this description are waterproof. Typical product here would be hiking boots or leather golf shoes traditionally designed to prevent water ingress. Ion-mask enhances the surface of materials in this product and by selecting materials that have a natural resistance to water or that have a very dense structure, such as leather, we ensure that water does not penetrate.
ion-Mask Hydrophobic (HPi)
ion mask is a process that can treat any shoe but it is important to note that it is not just a waterproof technology, it is a water management technology. Shoes engineered as ion-mask (HPi) have all the benefits of the ion-mask process but are not designed to be waterproof. Instead of trying to keep water out, they welcome water! Typical product here would be sandals or trail running shoes with open mesh materials which become much improved after the process. HPi shoes will be quicker drying because they absorb less water, they will also remain lighter as a result and stay clean longer than conventional untreated equivalent models.
Hi-Tec's expertise in designing, developing, and manufacturing Tec-Proof construction products, delivers truly functional waterproof/breathable footwear for versatile usage. The backbone of Tec-Proof constuction is the philosophy of allowing the materials to do their respective jobs. With Tec-Proof, only the seams of the upper are sealed with waterproof cement. All threads used on such product are also waterproof threads which do not wick moisture. Meshes are waterproofed with a membrane backer. However, the waterproof leather is allowed to breathe, which increases the moisture vapour permeability of the entire shoe. This process essentially ensures that the upper is truly waterproof, breathable, and durable.
Event waterproof technology provides maximum comfort for activity in harsh environments and keeps footwear DRY INSIDE by venting perspiration vapour through millions of unimpeded microscopic pores engineered into a durable waterproof membrane. Other breathable fabrics function by an indirect and slow process of absorption and evaporation. They contain a solid barrier of polyurethane that inhibits the passage of perspiration vapour. Only Event technology offers Direct Venting.
Thermo-Dri is a unique winter boot technology designed exclusively by Hi-Tec. Thermo-Dri integrates Thinsulate insulation, seam sealed waterproofing and quality leathers with a cushioning EVA Midsole, active flex points and a four layer polymer material in the heel and toe. The technology results in an insulated waterproof boot that is lightweight and flexible by design and suitable for cold weather activities!
V-Lite is a revolutionary vertical build concept that strips away as much weight as possible without sacrificing performance or durability. No one specific technology can be credited for the light weight of this collection, but rather the creative combination of innovative materials and construction.
Upper - Lightweight leathers and synthetics combine with durable, non-metallic hardware.
Comfort-Tec Insole - Comfort-Tec features a moisture wicking contoured EVA footbed to cradle and support your foot, while CT PLUS adds adour fighting Poliyou mid layer. CL CUSTOM incorporates viscoelastic memory foam for individualised fit and cushioning.
Stabila Flex Plus Lasting Board - No more heavy steel shanks. A multi-density, contoured lasting board ensures torsional rigidity and delivers essential forefoot flex.
EVA Midsole - Low profile, compression moulded EVA absorbs the hard impact of the great outdoors before it reaches your feet.
High Traction Outsole - A lightweight carbon rubber outsole provides traction, without the unnecessarily thick, heavy rubber lugs found on traditional boots.
Vibram is the world leader in high performance rubber soles combining quality, innovation and the best compounds for their specific use.

Vibram Super Trek
Vibram Super Trek is a rubber compound used for technical outdoor footwear. The most widely used Vibram compound, it's formulated to balance the need for great traction with long wear.
The biomechanical pressure map was then translated into two eight-density midsole configurations, which correspond with the various pressure zones.

3D Counter Balance
Infinity running platform for support and cushioning meaning a smoother, straighter centre of pressure and less chance of injury.
- Reduces pronation
- Smoother, straighter centre of pressure
- More efficient gait cycle
- Less likelihood of injury
XCM Technology elevates the V-Lite design & build philosophy. After extensive research and development, Hi-Tec introduces innovations that take seamless construction to the next level. By utilizing seams in the critical areas only, the product is ultimately more breathable, lighter and comfortable.
Less Seams = More Breathability = More Comfort = Less Weight
The best footwear insulation available, providing warmth without bulk. The micro-fibres of the Thinsulate insulation are about ten times smaller than any other synthetic insulations, making them ideal for trapping insulating air and reflecting back the body's radiant heat.
