That summer feeling is in the air and what better way to celebrate it the South African way? Some of HI-TEC’s favourite things about South African summers are beach days, braais, and game drives. Our 3200km coast provides an endless variety of beaches to visit. We are spoiled with natural landscapes and a variety of wildlife, meaning we have an abundance of game reserves that help protect the wildlife. And then we have braais: The best way for friends and family to get together is spending time in comfortable HI-TEC new summer sandals.

While keeping at heart these favourites, HI-TEC launched brand new summer sandals, made especially for women to enjoy their favourite activities – comfortably in style. The Ansellia HI-TEC | Longevity LIVECollection boast functionality and beautiful design that’s made to fit snug. (1)

The collection’s designs are South African inspired with a floral edge. The collection consist of three main styles for SS17. The multi-strap Ansellia Adventure (2), the Ansellia Thong sandal (3) and the  slip on Ansellia Cross Strap (4). Dress them up with your favourite summer dress, denim shorts and plain-tee. Created with quality and comfort in mind, these sandals include a fully lined, adjustable synthetic upper with nylon webbing straps, a fully lined ergonomic foot bed for instant comfort and duel colour contoured rubber outsole.
