At Hi-Tec, we live and breathe the outdoors. We embrace every adventure and outdoor opportunity.

We know, you know, that hiking is possibly one of the best activities you can do this summer to get in shape, destress and take in all of nature’s gifts and beauty. But outdoor fun can get rather intense in the heat of the beautiful South African sun. You need to be prepared for the warm days with the correct footwear. This will make or break your trekking experience.

What are Summer ‘Shandals’ all about?

A shandal is a sandal shoe combination, in a nutshell. Perfect for making sure you’re cool on the trail while performing under rugged conditions. 

Tortola Escape 

Our Hi-Tec Tortola Escape is your ultimate go to for light hikes during the summer season. The combination of a shoe and sandal makes for a perfect companion when the sun hits and breathability becomes extremely important. The easy to use toggle fastening system adds to the comfort of the Tortola Escape, in case you need to adjust when swelling comes into play after long walks. Speaking of comfort, this shandal also boasts a neoprene lining which provides padding and protection as well as an EVA footbed for a smooth excursion. 

To top it off, the Tortola Escape incorporates a “MDT rubber outsole” which is designed to deliver the perfect balance of traction, protection and durability. This means, the lugs on the bottom sole allows for dirt and debris to be released quicker for better grip on wet or other types of terrain as well as for better flex which reduces foot fatigue. Impressive, right?
