The Hi-Tec Quadra Classic is a popular walking shoe that provides a comfortable and breathable feel which are ideal for light trail walking and day-to-day wear.
The Hi-Tec Quadra Classic is constructed with a suede and mesh upper. The suede offers durability and comfort while the mesh allows air-flow throughout the shoe. Additionally, with a moisture-wicking lining, it keeps the feet feeling cool and dry throughout those long walks. Designed with a ghillie lacing system which loops around the suede overlays to ensure a secure fit when the laces are pulled.
Located in the midsole is an EVA insole which offers the underfoot cushioning you need for those outdoor activities such as leisurely bike rides and walks with the family. Designed with a carbon rubber outsole, it improves grip and durability, while the flex grooves allow flexibility when walking across varied terrain.
