Hi-Tec Raven Mid WP Walking Boots
A firm and breathable walking boot, the Hi-Tec Raven Mid WP Walking Boots will ensure that you will always be in comfort and protected no matter how long your day out is.
Constructed using a softshell upper, the Hi-Tec Raven Mid WP Walking Boots ensure breathable comfort for all-day wear. The soft nature of the upper wraps your feet in complete comfort whilst perforations within the fabric allow cool air to circulate throughout the upper to increase ventilation. A Dri-Tec membrane also resides within the upper to keep your feet cool, dry and comfortable at all times. Dri-Tec ensures superior waterproofing and excellent vapour transmission to maximise your performance in even the wettest of environments. It works to ensure wick excess sweat and moisture away from the skin where it can be easily evaporated whilst also preventing wet weather from gaining entry. The millions of microscopic pores within the Dri-Tec membrane allow water vapour to escape without allowing water droplets in, so your feet will always remain dry and comfortable. Completing the upper is a lacing system which locks down the midfoot to create a snug and secure fit.
A full-length platform of moulded EVA resides underfoot for lightweight, responsive cushioning. Generous, soft and durable, it spares your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces. Exceptionally lightweight, the EVA ensures long-lasting cushioning to keep you comfortable on long-distance days. EVA is extremely firm, which will absorb shocks instantly and effectively, preventing them from causing any damage to the sole of the foot. The energy produced from this will also be returned as rebound, which will give you an added spring in your step. The midsole ensures you are ready for uneven terrain as you explore the unbeaten path.
Durable Carbon Rubber Outsole
Developed using a carbon rubber outsole, the Raven Mid WP Walking Boots provide excellent grip and durability in all weather conditions. Ensuring multi-directional grip the outsole ensures traction on varied terrain ensuring confident footing whether you're hiking or out for a leisurely stroll in the local park. The durable rubber provides a strong grip on the most challenging terrain; it works to protect itself from damage, and protect users from losing control and slipping. It is also highly durable meaning no matter what you throw at it, the Trace Lite will perform time and time again.
