The Fabric is also superbly lightweight and windproof to keep wind out of the pant as well as water.

The Upper is constructed from Full Grain Leather which is a superbly durable material that can help to protect the foot as well as keep it dry. Mesh sections have also been added to the shoes upper which allows warm air to be released from the shoe at the same time as allowing cool air to flow in, keeping the wearers feet and the inside of the shoe as cool, dry and comfortable as possible. Protecting the front of the foot and shoe is a 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 shoe.
The footbed is made from a Blended EVA which offers supreme cushioning and support to key areas like the arch and heel, holding the foot securely in place for a smooth wear. By supporting these keys areas of the foot, this midsole material can also help to offer enough support to help prevent against discomfort and possibly injury. Another feature the foot bed offers the shoe is superb Odour Management which helps to prevent bacteria forming inside the shoe and causing odour and possible damage to the shoe over time. The heel of the shoe is fitted with an Air Cushion which helps to keep the foot stable inside of the shoe as well as absorbing heel to help prevent injury that could be caused. EVA Foam has also been added to the midsole to offer long lasting, plush cushioning under the foot to keep the wearer feeling comfortable and stable on their feet as they perform.
The outsole has been constructed from Vibram rubber which is extremely durable and practical. This rubber also allows the shoe to grip various terrain in various weather conditions that the wearer will come across as they run and explore.
