Hi-Tec V-Lite Fasthike Mid WP

These fabric boots from Hi-Tec are long in the foot, but otherwise a good fit. They’re not as padded as some, and therefore don’t feel as good from the box, but they do wear in quite quickly. It takes a while to get the lacing right, but once sorted they feel supportive and stable. Waterproof leather keeps rain/dew at bay, so they don’t have as much fabric in the upper as most.

Verdict: The Fasthike is a nice, lightweight, budget-end boot that looks good and will certainly do a job on easier low-level walks and softer terrain. Good value
