The increasing popularity of hybrids and crossover vehicles makes you think that the auto-industry is leading the way in terms of producing crossover consumer goods. However, when it comes to apparel, particularly work boots, Hi-Tec has been constructing hybrid boots since 1974. With that said, if you're looking for top-quality men's boots that are perfect for the hike, job, or daily errands, you might want to consider these Hi-Tec Men’s 52163 Black Trail Ox Chukka Waterproof Hiker Boots. With their waterproof design plus high performance traction, you'll always be ready to hit the trails with this pair.
These black boots are constructed with 100% waterproof full-grain leather uppers. The full-grain, tough ballistic leather naturally repels moisture and by itself is water-resistant for up to 2 hours. However, to bolster these waterproof boots ability to fend off moisture even better, Hi-Tec added their i-Shield and Dri-Tec technologies. Each of these technologies is an invisible hydrophobic coating. Now for those of you not into Greek roots, “hydrophobia” is the fear of water. Naturally, “hydrophobic” coatings repel or fail to mix with water. What all of that boils down to is that these black leather boots have an impermeable outer membrane that's waterproof and will not allow liquid to pass into the interior. Oh, we should also mention that Hi-Tec’s i-Shield coating also makes these black boots resistant to stains, so you have that going for you as well.
Hi-Tec designed these hybrid hiker boots to be waterproof both externally and internally. The interior of these black crossover boots features a Micro-fleece moisture-wicking textile lining. This special fleece lining provides additional water resistance, as well as the soft comfort of fleece. For added comfort and dryness, Hi-Tech included their OrthoLite Impressions sockliners, too. These sockliners, which are made with open-cell foam, delivers instant cushioning as well as slip-resistant performance. In addition, this type of sockliner pairs with the micro-fleece lining to allow air to flow internally, which in turn creates a moisture management system that will wick away any sweat your feet produces. These features no doubt increase the hybrid utility and waterproof capability of these black Hi-Tec boots.
Interior comfort is further improved by the inclusion of padded collars and tongues. These features help keep dirt as well as debris out and further bolsters water resistance as the padding features the moisture-wicking textile lining. For increased comfort and excellent cushioning, Hi-Tec added their high rebound midsoles. We could go into extensive detail about the technology of the midsoles, but simply put, these rugged midsoles mean that these black hiker boots have ultra-impact and high-rebound cushioning that's highly durable. The midsoles combined with molded heel chassis increases the stability and protection offered by this waterproof footwear.
These Trail Ox boots are loaded with comfort, stability, and protection. In addition to all of the above, Hi-Tec added lightweight and durable high-performance steel fork shanks that provides both freedom of movement (i.e. from flexibility), as well as stability during wear. To provide you with a dependable foundation and traction on all terrains, these Chukka boots feature Michelin rubber outsoles. (Yes, that's the tire brand, too.) You basically have an all-weather tire for your outsoles. With that feature, you can feel safe and comfortable in the toughest conditions.
To ensure these hiking boots hold up to extreme weather situations, Hi-Tech constructed all of the external hardware with a durable nylon that's rustproof for long-lasting wear. That hardware includes the lacing holes, which are a part of an extended lacing system that allows you to have a comfortable and adjustable personal fit.
This men's footwear from Hi-Tec is 100% waterproof, both internally and externally. On top of that, they’re loaded with comfort, protection, and stability. Add to that a sleek all-black aesthetic, and we feel you’ve got a pair of work boots that are perfect for just about any activity. We’ll call these a top-class “hybrid,” and if you’re potentially looking for that in a pair of hikers, we certainly suggest ordering Hi-Tec Men’s 52163 Black Trail Ox Chukka Waterproof Hiker Boots from Working Person's Store today.

Why Choose Working Person? Let Our Customers Explain!
I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the products and service I received from your company.
I had a short notice request to travel from New Orleans to the Northwest Territories in Canada to inspect an offshore facility out on the sea ice north of the arctic circle. You can't get clothes suitable for that area in New Orleans at any time, and certainly not in April. I called your order line on a Saturday, and your ordering department spent quite a bit of time with me making recommendations and checking to see if the gear was in stock. He made sure that the order was packed for a Monday overnight shipment and I had my clothing by Tuesday afternoon. I left New Orleans on Wednesday morning.
This was a very important project for our company and I want to thank you for your service. I also want to tell you that the great representative you had for your company. I've passed on your name to our organization for other folks that might have to make a trip up North.
Here are a couple of pictures of me in Canada out on the offshore ice. It was -22 C (-8 F) with a pretty good wind (wind chill -32 C / -26 F). The clothes I got from you all kept me warm throughout the 7 hours I spent outside doing my inspection. In fact, as you can see, I didn't even need to zip my jacket. It was a sunny day, which helped.
Finally, the gloves you see in the pictures are not the ones I ordered from you. Your gloves were fine, and I used them when I wasn't physically working, but the work I was doing required a leather glove for hand protection. I procured a pair of thinsulate leather work gloves in Inuvik that worked great and were a good balance between insulation, protection, and manual dexterity. I don't have them at work with me, but if you are interested I can look at the tag and send the brand information on to you.
