Hi-Tec was founded in 1974 in England (Essex) by a Dutchman named Frank van Wezel. The office is currently located in the Netherlands. Hi-Tec is mainly known for its lightweight hiking boot, which also became Hi-Tec's main success. Frank van Wezel left for the Netherlands for his studies and fell in love with squash and tennis. This led to his involvement in the sports shoe industry where he introduced the first dedicated squash shoe. This led to the establishment of Hi-Tec Sports. The Hi-Tec brand began to focus on the perfect walking and running sneaker. This is still the most important thing for Hi-Tec to this day. Most Hi-Tec sneakers are recognizable by their slim silhouettes with a strong eye for detail and durability. Inspired by life, sports brand Hi-Tec designs modern hiking and sports shoes for young and old. They provide the support and comfort that every foot needs to prevent injuries.
