Hi-Tec Penrith Low Waterproof Trail Walking Shoes
Make every step a simple pleasure to take, with Hi-Tec's Penrith Waterproof Walking Shoes and their Comfort-Flex build.Upper
A suede and mesh upper will encase each foot in high-performance breathability, durability, and comfort; let your feet breathe as they take you on every adventure you ask them to. Inside the shoe, resides a Dri-Tec membrane. This membrane gives you superior waterproofing and excellent vapor transmission; maximising your performance in even the wettest of environments. Millions of microscopic pores in the Dri-Tec membrane allow water vapor to escape without allowing water droplets in, keeping your feet dry and comfortable, never clammy.Midsole and Outsole
In the midsole, moisture wicking technology helps to wick sweat away from the skin, keeping your feet dry and comfortable on those longer trails. A contoured CMEVA sock liner gives you a cushty, springy platform for a smoother ride; helping to spare your joints as you leap and land on hard terrain. A long-lasting rubber outsole completes the Penrith Walking Shoe. The multi-directional lug pattern supplies plenty of traction, letting you tackle tricky terrains with confidence. Flex grooves feature to promote forefoot flexion; so there's zero stiffness as you maneuver sharp turns, only plenty of support.Features
