Hi-Tec Bandera II WP Wide Fit Mens Walking Boots Whether you're enjoying a short afternoon hike or taking the dog for a walk, these Hi-Tec Bandera II WP Wide Fit Men's Walking Shoes are ideal for light walks. With a breathable yet 100% waterproof upper and a high traction outsole, you're guaranteed to remain comfortable, dry and maintain a great grip as you explore new paths.
Suede and Mesh Upper
A combination of mesh and suede make up the materials for the upper. The mesh allows air to circulate freely to the feet, letting them breath and providing excellent ventilation in warmer weather. The suede not only withstands the wear and tear you'll encounter while out and about, but is also waterproof to keep your feet warm and dry in wet conditions. The versatile lacing system allows an extremely secure fit, which fits around your foot snugly, therefore minimising your feet moving within the shoe when walking. EVA Compression Midsole
Keeping your feet happy is of the upmost importance when out walking to provide protection from rocks and uneven ground. A compressed EVA Midsole with shank in the midsole of these shoes, offers great cushioning to provide maximum comfort. The midsole also maintains your stability when tackling rugged terrain allowing you to walk for longer periods of time without your feet becoming sore. An EVA insole also delivers additional underfoot cushioning, to make your walk as smooth and comfortable as possible.
Multi-Directional Traction Outsole
A Multi-Directional Traction outsole provides an outstanding level of grip on any ground whether flat or uneven, wet or dry. Strategically placed flex points also feature on the outsole to improve forefoot flexibility and responsiveness, which helps your feet move as naturally as possible throughout your hike. The outsole is also highly durable, so that regardless of the terrain, your shoes will always deliver maximum performance.
