Winston Churchill once said, “The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you can see.”
In 1978 Hi-Tec changed the game. With the introduction of the athletically inspired “Sierra Lite,” Hi-Tec became the first manufacturer of lightweight hiking shoes and boots. The creation of the Sierra Lite represented a tectonic shift in the industry’s approach to the “hiking” category. ’Lighter Faster Comfortable’ were now mantras applicable to the world of hiking. Flash forward to 2012 and Hi-Tec is re-introducing the original classic that literally revolutionized an industry.
This modern version of the original light weight hiker pays homage to 1978 version, but has been radically updated with the addition of new technologies like a rugged Vibram outsole, co-molded injection EVA, full-grain Nubuck leather and ion-mask over the entire shoe.Read More
