Hi-Tec Harmony Lace WP (2013)

New for 2013 and very lightweight, but surprisingly small and narrow for their size – they’re very well-suited to women with lower-volume feet. The uppers are soft, comfortable and supportive, though, and plenty of mesh in the uppers helps your feet breathe and makes them feel great in warm weather. The lacing system is a little fiddly across the toes, but it will hold your feet securely when properly adjusted. There’s a waterproof lining to keep your feet dry, and there’s some nice-looking waterproof leather in the uppers. Aggressive lugs at the toe and heel provide great grip on steep ground, although a lack of midsole stiffness will leave them wanting on tough terrain. They’ve got a good quality Vibram sole, though.
