Blog: Hi-Tech shows off magic trick

Joe Ayling | 28 August 2008

In response to a blog on Hi-Tech's new waterproof walking boots earlier today (28 August), the footwear maker has sent just-style another video clip.

New footage shows its V-Lite Altitude Ultra WPi, which uses trademark ion-mask technology, being fully submerged at the London Aquarium during a launch this week.

Water can then be seen beading off quickly, with the boot and surrounding fish coming out unscathed - so hats off.

Hi-Tech sent the new clip after just-style blogged that the old one merely demonstrated ion-mask's properties on material samples rather than the boots themselves.

But, as Hi-Tech keeps showing, it's all 'water off a duck's back' really.
