New Year New You Series - Hi Tec Auckland Sneakers Giveaway - CLOSED


Hi-Tec is a great company that produces instantly comfortable lightweight footwear for the Outdoors, Golf, and Court sport activities, because your leisure time is too precious to walk around feeling uncomfortable in your shoes.

I recently had a chance to try a pair of Women's Auckland Sneakers (pictured below)]. I am not sure if I used them in the most conventional way, but we got an unexpected snow storm, and I left the pair of shoes that I would normally wear at my grandparents over Christmas, so I didn't have any shoes other than heals or my Hi-Tec Aucklands, so I figured I would give them a try. With about 4 inches of snow on the ground they provided perfect traction for the surface I was trying to tread, and kept my feet completely dry. I was very impressed with these sneakers, and would recommend them to friends, family and my readers!

Features of the Auckland Adventure Sport Sneaker:

Waterproof seam-sealed suede leather/mesh upper
Moisture-wicking lining
Protective abrasion-resistant toe and heel
Rustproof lacing system
Athletic design, last, and fit
Lightweight compression-molded EVA midsole
Durable carbon rubber outsole
Removable carbon rubber MDT outsole

Sizes
Mens 7-12, 13, colors gray or brown
Womens 5-10, 11, colors: gray or tan
