Climate & Weatherproof

A waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® membrane combined with an inner lining and protective knit keeps active feet dry and at just the right temperature.

Back to Technologies
Grip & Motion

A gently curved, ‘rocker’ sole rolls from heel to toe with the motion of walking, minimising the amount the foot has to bend and flex, conserving energy and reducing fatigue.

Back to Technologies
Cushioning & Support

Precisely placed, anatomically targeted dual density cushioning reduces strain on the ball of the foot, supporting the biomechanics of walking - the foot’s natural gait - and providing lasting comfort.

Back to Technologies
Climate & Weatherproof

A waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® membrane combined with a high-performance lining insulates against the cold. Wet or cold, feet stay warm and dry.

Back to Technologies
Health & Hygience

The unique open-cell structure of Ortholite® high-performance footbed delivers long-lasting cushioning plus breathability and moisture-wicking.

Back to Technologies
Grip & Motion

Specially engineered rubber soles made from a durable abrasion-resistant compound deliver maximum grip and stability in dry as well as wet conditions.

Back to Technologies
Grip & Motion

Unlike conventional boat shoes that release water through the sole, water is quickly and continuously expelled through small ducts in the sidewall, reducing the risk of slipping, sliding and aquaplaning.

GORE-TEX® Extended
Climate & Weatherproof

A waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® membrane combined with an inner lining and protective knit keeps active feet dry and at just the right temperature.
