Hi-Tec South Africa has announced a range of new sneakers as part of its Heritage Collection.
A few years back, Hi-Tec launched its HTS74 range of sneakers. The HTS74 brand formed part of Hi-Tec’s premium sneaker line, inspired by the brand’s sneaker legacy. Unfortunately for South Africans, the brand will no longer be available on our shores. However, Hi-Tec South Africa has transitioned to their new Heritage Sneaker Range.
With this announcement, Hi-Tec has introduced a range of new sneakers as part of the Legacy collection. This includes the HTS GTS, HTS RGS Shadow, Granite, PCT and the Silver Shadow.
Each of the sneakers forms part of Hi-Tec’s Heritage Legacy sneaker collection range.
HTS RGS Shadow – The Traditional and Tread
Next up is the new Hi-Tec RGS Shadow sneaker. The high-drop unisex sneaker offers classic colourways as a nod to its vintage roots. With its retro athleisure style, it offers a unique design of old and new.
In addition to this, it features a bulkier rubber sole, which provides a modern twist to the retro stylings.
To add a touch of durability, the mesh and suede upper are created with long-lasting durability in mind. On hot days, a moisture-wicking lining keeps your feet dry throughout the day. And with its removable EVA insole and phylon midsole, you’re guaranteed next-level comfort.
Silver Shadow – The Modern Legacy
Arguably the most popular sneaker from the range is the Hi-Tec Silver Shadow OG. The sneaker completes the Heritage Collection with this throwback.
While it offers classic-inspired designs, it has been modernised, as well as brings top tech features underfoot. The style wraps vintage athleisure with a modernised design. The dual-density EVA midsole provides cushioning, with the carbon rubber outsole superior traction. You can certainly feel the difference.
It also offers the Hi-Tec moisture-wicking lining to keep your feet dry and comfortable throughout the day.
Granite – The Club Suede
The Hi-Tec Granite silhouette is a versatile sneaker. It is crafted through its suede style, including the classic brown colourway, well-known as part of the Hi-Tec brand. Additionally, there are three additional retro colourways within the Granite range.
The sneaker was designed for both casual and outdoor wear. This means it’s both comfortable and durable, with an always-on grip across most surfaces.
It, too, offers a removable EVA innersole and dual-density midsole for that extra cushioning and support. It is the carbon rubber outsole that provides the grip for superior traction.
PCT – The Local Legend
The Hi-Tec PCT is a men’s sneaker with hi-top suede boot styling. This is a popular choice for the more outgoing trendsetters. The sneaker offers both fashionable designs and hard-working durability you can rely on.
The PCT was designed to match most styles within your wardrobe. This includes anything from cargo pants to jeans. Even with the designs in mind, it doesn’t compromise on grip or comfort.
Keep your feet cushioned throughout the day with a removable EVA insole, as well as a dual-density midsole. The carbon rubber outsole provides the required traction when going off-road. Additionally, the moisture-wicking lining also keeps your feet dry on those warmer days.
HTS GTR – The Vintage Venture
The first sneaker from the collection is the Hi-Tec HTS GTR. This is a retro sneaker styled for men as part of the brand’s Heritage Collection.
It offers a mix of suede and nylon, which combines with the vintage lines and colour combinations to give it that classic look. It’s a mix of old and new with the sneaker, with its style based on the classic look and the technology updated with a modern twist.
The construction features inner comfort through the dual-density EVA midsole, which provides long-lasting cushioning. This is partnered with the carbon and Vibram rubber outsole to add a level of durability and protection to the aesthetic.
