We recently had the opportunity to try out the HI-TEC Geo Nakuru shoes, they have exceeded our expectations in every way. These shoes are a testament to HI-TEC’s commitment to quality and performance. We’ve seen hiking and outdoor apparel creep into fashion often these days, and we love it! Its practical and comfortable and expresses our outdoor loving personality perfectly.

The first thing that struck me about the Geo Nakuru shoes was their incredible comfort. From the moment I slipped them on, I could feel the plush cushioning and support throughout the shoe. Whether I was walking on uneven trails or standing for long periods, my feet felt incredibly comfortable. The padded collar and tongue add an extra layer of comfort, and the shoes provide excellent arch support. Something that would be welcomed on trail.

These shoes are built to last. The construction is solid, and the materials used are of the highest quality. We’ve put them through some rugged terrain, including rocky trails and muddy paths, and they have held up remarkably well. The shoe provides adequate protection against rocks and debris.

One of the standout features of these shoes is their exceptional traction. The multi-directional rubber outsole provides excellent grip on a variety of surfaces. I’ve confidently tackled wet, slippery terrain and steep inclines without any slipping or sliding. Whether you’re hiking, walking, or simply navigating everyday life, these shoes will keep you sure-footed. Trendy yet fit for purpose, the GEO Nakuru features an MD Traction rubber making it durable and providing enough grip! We ran errands on the pristinely polished floors of a shopping mall, before hitting the track at the gym! The grip of the GEO Nakuru is second to none. On the trails, the MD Traction rubber comes into its own. Rocks and loose terrain were eaten up by its superior grip.

One of our favourite aspects of the Geo Nakuru range is its versatility. While the Geo Nakuru shoes are primarily designed for outdoor activities like trail running, hiking, and trekking, I’ve found them to be versatile enough for everyday use. They have a stylish, understated design that blends well with casual attire, making them suitable for both outdoor adventures and urban settings. The only minor drawback is that they may be a bit too rugged looking for formal occasions and the white soles show dirty and dust easily. On that note though, the soles are easily cleaned with a wet cloth and there are different colour options.

The shoes offer good breathability, thanks to the combination of mesh panels. 


My feet stayed reasonably cool and comfortable during warm weather hikes, but if you’re planning to use them in extremely hot conditions, you might want to consider wearing moisture-wicking socks for enhanced ventilation.

In conclusion, the HI-TEC Geo Nakuru shoes are an outstanding choice for anyone in need of comfortable, durable, and high-traction footwear. Whether you’re an avid hiker, an outdoor enthusiast, or someone looking for everyday comfort and performance, these shoes deliver on all fronts. While they may not be the most formal option for certain occasions, their versatility and overall performance make them a worthwhile investment for anyone seeking quality footwear. I highly recommend giving the Geo Nakuru shoes a try. At R1499 the shoe offers excellent value for money as most other brands with similar products retails well over the R2000 mark.
