The HiLite is SOM’s first mid-top model ever produced. More flexible than any of the other SOM shoes, the materials used in the HiLite are technically advanced, durable, provide greater breathability, and are quick-drying. The liner is made with a smooth and durable synthetic suede. The 7 holes provide accurate lacing. The shoes can be tightened using 6 or 7 holes depending on the activity.
The mid-top provides extra ankle protection from dust, rocks, and dirt, whether you’re walking on a city street, or running minimally or hiking on rough trails. Flexibility, light weight, and resistance make the HiLite competitive on the market and the most innovative model of the SOM collection. Learn here how the shoemaker designed it.
