At the back of the foot is a TPU counter which renders stability and provides rearfoot protection. The heel kick, on the other hand, helps keep a snowshoe on.

Enhanced outdoor protection

Inside is a fleece collar and 200 g 3M Thinsulate which keeps the foot warm even at very low temperatures. To maintain a dry and cool in-shoe feel, the brand designers incorporated a proprietary waterproof membrane, the UltraDry.

Optimal provision of comfort

For enhanced comfort, the boot also carries the CuShin Comfort Tongue Technology. It has an internal waffle mesh and four-way stretch nylon which promotes a comfortable flex. It helps minimize the pressure on the shin to the top of the tongue.
