With over 40 years of history Hi-Tec is one of the most iconic sneaker brands on the market.
The brand is founded by Frank van Wezel, a Dutchman who loved playing squash but hated the shoes he played on. He started making his own squash shoes in 1974 in Shoeburyness, England and Hi-Tec was born. The innovation and quality was picked up by locals and became rapidly popular. Hi-Tec started to produce running shoes, hiking boots and even shoes for the FBI!
The company has roots in almost every major sport from tennis to golf, from trail running to football. Nowadays the company is still owned by the “Van Wezels” with distribution in more than 85 countries.
