A versatile trail shoe which performs well across multiple activities - great for walking, road or trail running, and cycling.
The Hi-Tec V-LITE Flash Force Low i Trail Shoe
, exclusively available at GO Outdoors, has been designed to give you support, durability, grip and so much more.
Hi-Tec have used their exclusive Vibram® RollinGait System sole unit
which supports the natural roll of the foot and helps reduce fatigue,
effectively letting you push harder and go further.
It has a high performance synthetic upper which has been coated in i-shield technology, creating an additional layer of protection that repels water, dirt and oils.
A super-lightweight, high-abrasion V-LITE EVA outsole provides comfort and protection, with the removable moulded EVA footbed ensuring soft underfoot cushioning.
The rugged outsole has deep mud shedding lugs to give great grip and traction across any terrain, whilst the gusseted tongue helps to keep out any grit and debris.

- Ghillie and eyelet lacing creates a secure fit

Vibram® RollinGait System.
Hi-Tec and Vibram® have worked hand in hand to yield a truly inspiring technology which will change the way people think about their footwear.
Vibram® has performed extensive research on the technicalities of mountain running and walking and has come to these conclusions:
- The descent is the crucial moment during which the footwear can be a determining factor in improving an athlete’s performance
- At the point when the descent gradient increases there is a greater tendency for the foot to make contact with the ground with the heel area
How it Works
The Vibram® RollinGait System builds on this data. RGS is a new innovative technology from Vibram® that aims to reduce muscle fatigue when running and walking. It has been especially developed to optimise energy output during downhill running and walking. When the foot first hits the ground it is usually with the heel, which is – at that point - the centre of pressure. Once the heel has made contact with the ground, the pressure moves towards the metatarsus and then to the toes. The curved shape of the RGS’s sole supports the natural movement of the foot whenever it experiences impact with the ground.

Hi-tec v-lite walking shoes, 19 July 2016
By Andy (Minehead)
Just brought my second pair, last pair were worn every day for over a year, really comfortable and hard wearing
I've had these for 5 days now and walked around 25 miles in them and I can happily say they are the most comfortable walking shoes I've ever owned. They are nice and light, give plenty of support and you don't feel excessive rebound. The memory foam insole works a treat and I haven't felt fatigued after walking them at all. I have wide feet, so I need a large toe box. After walking in the, for a couple of hours my little toes rub a tiny amount as my feet swell up, but all my shoes do this. I would highly recommend them and will definitely buy them again when this pair is worn out.
Walking shoe with a great sole, 05 December 2015
By Paul (London)
I have walked about 20 miles in these. My pros and cons are as follows.
Pros: A very grippy non slip Vibram sole in the wet and solid support. The shoe is very well made and offers good value compared to more expensive brands/shoes. The shoes have a wider fitting compare to other brands so will suit the wider foot.
Cons: I was not keen on the yellow laces, so replaced with grey/black laces (you need 140cm length). I am not sure if the fabric mesh outer on the toes will be durable (?). The padding around the ankle has a firmer padding and can cause soreness through rubbing. Walking on pavement is a bit clunky, but you may get used to it.
My ankle soreness, the clunky boot feel and sore ankle prevents my giving 5 stars. I cannot comment on waterproofness as I have not had the opportunity. Would I buy again? I am undecided. But, you do get a lot of shoe for your money, so go for a fitting first for personal taste and fit.
