GORE-TEX is a fully waterproof membrane which blocks out water but is also superbly breathable, allowing the wearer to stay dry, cool and comfortable as they train. The Fabric is also superbly lightweight and windproof to keep wind out of the pant as well as water. The Upper is constructed from Synthetic Leather as it is a superbly durable material which can help to protect the foot as well as keep it dry. Mesh sections have also been added to the boots upper which allows warm air to be released from the boot at the same time as allowing cool air to flow in, keeping the wearers feet and the inside of the boot as cool, dry and comfortable as possible. The tongue is made from Closed-Cell Foam which helps to keep moisture out of the boot as well as shielding the foot and inside of the boot from dirt and debris which could possibly enter, especially on loose, rugged trails. Protecting the front of the foot and boot is a Rubber Toe Cap which helps to prevent the wearer being injured on rocks and various debris which could damage the front of the foot or the boot.
