After a couple of months, you can expect the black outer plastic coating to flake off (I think it's probably PU, which isn't at all durable). This makes the trainers look incredibly worn, patchy and rather tacky, completely removing the intial smart look. However at this point, they still serve the purpose of being (very) casual running shoes.
Unfortunately, I've had mine for 7 months now with almost daily wear and they are getting to the point where they need replacing soon, as the sole is beginning to peel off both. Normally for me, trainers last at least 2-3 times longer before reaching this stage, so I would not advice anyone to buy this if they intend to wear them on a daily basis. However, if you wear trainers only occasionally, then this is a great product.
Hubby has big and wide feet and ordered a size 13 & 14 not knowing which one would fit best. The 13 turned out to be what my hubby calls a 13.5 based on other footwear he has and likes that little bit of extra room.
This is not the first time we have purchased this brand/type of training shoe and more than happy to go back to it again this year, having last time gone for a "change" to another brand which in the end turned out to be not as good and comfortable as first thought and ended up in the bin!
This may not be considered by some as the most trendy not having one of the more leading brand logo's embellished on it, but no point in having a high-price brand trainer that is vanity over comfort and not wearable. This trainer was purchased for casual walking only, not sport. It it light to wear, looks good comfortable with a padded insole, wide enough for the larger foot and has a really good rubber sole tread/grip on surfaces, which is important to my hubby to feel that security under his feet.
As with the previous pair of the same type, there was no breaking-in period with these or rubbing on the feet. Will stick with this Hi-Tech brand trainer for as long as it is available. The price point is excellent too which is an added bonus.
Delivery was great. The trainers were delivered next day. On slightly negative side, the experience of sending back unwanted size 14 via Hermes, collection was a nightmare and never happened and we ended up re-contacting Amazon for a new label and returned the item via the post office instead. Refund promptly received for the return.
These are great thank you! These were ever so slightly 'tight' when I first put them on BUT they have now stretched to my feet size and are now very comfortable, a good fit and very bouncy now they have worn in. I prefer this sort of style as they are not over the top with bright greens, purples and white. Basically they are subtle which means I can wear them with my black jeans to go out and about in without looking like I have rainbows at the end of my legs. The trainers are easily wiped clean and certainly have a good grip when walking my dog and out on my pedal bike. Thank You Hi-Tech and Amazon for the swift delivery. These trainers will be a purchase in the future when I have worn these into the ground. I was happy with the price as well as some trainers in the shops retail for ridiculous amounts and have over the top styling, I could not find a decent pair so took the chance of 'buying without trying'. I'm glad I did.

I've never reviewed these before but thought it was time I did. This is my 3rd pair of these HI-Tec Blasts and they last longer than many others I've tried but as with all things manufactured these days, things aren't what they used to be. The heels tend to go on them leaving a 'honey cone' construction with holes so the water gets in and stones rattle around in the heel when you walk. These do that too, but not as quickly as others. I'm still wearing the last pair I bought in June 2018 and they are fairing well and expect to get another 6 months out of them worn almost daily. The previous pair to those are in the bin after about a year or so of regular use. They are comfortable, the inner sole shaped for your foot better than some I've bought and fairly water resistant having been our in the rain many times in them but still had dry feet. Like everything, the price has gone up by £10 since my first pair so they aren't as good value as they once were but I prefer that than the price staying the same but the quality suffering
