April 27, 2017

Hi-Tec OX Belmont Waterproof trail walking shoes have been awarded the Trail Magazine APPROVED stamp of approval.

Featuring in the ‘Best for your Budget Trail Shoes’ review piece in the May 2017 edition of Trail Magazine, our OX Belmont Waterproof trail walking shoes were awarded 5 out of 5 for fit and value. The piece was written by respected outdoor gear reviewer and technical editor Graham Thompson, who gave them an outstanding review.

Up against competitor shoes from Regatta and Dare2Be, the OX Belmont Waterproof trail walking shoes came out top in the ‘Under £100’ category, with an overall score of 4.4 out of 5. In his final verdict, Graham Thompson says: “If you want good performance for trail walking and trekking, then you will have to pay a lot more to get worthwhile benefits beyond those offered here”.

The Hi-Tec OX Belmont are waterproof trail walking shoes for men and women, featuring a range of technologies. A Dri-Tec membrane keeps these shoes waterproof while the i-shield invisible treatment repels water and dirt to prevent stains, keeping the shoes looking newer for longer. Underfoot, these trek walking shoes have an energy absorbing, ultra-lightweight midsole XLR8>> and incredibly comfortable Ortholite Impressions slow recovery foam insole. Finally, the Michelin rubber outsole provides ultimate traction, flexibility and durability, making these trail walking shoes ready to tackle all types of terrain in everyday life.

In his Trail Magazine ‘Best for your Budget Trail Shoes’ review, Graham Thompson describes them as a “well-priced shoe” with features that “far outweigh the price tag”. He goes on to say “comfort is better than others around this price tag by quite a margin” and “a precise fit, sole grip and the ability to resist impact from stones underfoot make this a great all round shoe for general hill walking on a wide range of terrain”.

With a Recommended Retail Price (RRP) of £75, the review also highlighted the fantastic value of these waterproof trail walking shoes. Scoring 5 out of 5 for this section, the review summarises “This is remarkable for the price and certainly, in our view, one of the best-value trail shoes we’ve seen”.

Trail Magazine describes trail shoes as “a good alternative to boots when hillwalking and trekking on easier paths, as well as being ideal for post trail activities around the campsite and bar”. This is exactly what Hi-Tec’s Outdoor Crossover (OX) shoes are designed for. A great all-rounder which can take you from the town to the trails, the Hi-Tec Outdoor Crossover Collection packs in technology and couples it with style for comfortable, durable and versatile men’s and women’s outdoor footwear.

Hi-Tec are extremely proud that the OX Belmont Waterproof trail walking shoes have been recognised by such a well-known outdoor magazine like Trail Magazine, and reviewed by one of the most respected gear reviewers in the industry.
