Gusseted tongue

A gusseted tongue keeps out the entire element and makes your feet dry and pleasant. By gusseted, we mean that the tongue is attached to the side of the footwear. By this, no rain or snow can sneak inside the shoe.

The material

Your footwear specifies the ‘upper’ and the ‘sole’. The upper is the part that covers the top of the foot and the ankle. Look for water-resistant options such as leather and nylon that come with pre-treated waterproofing. The sole of the footwear should be dry and also provide good traction.

Inner fabrics
