HydroDRY PRO® is a 4 layer fabric consisting of wicking abrasion resistance lining, protective open cell foam, non-porous membrane and protective tricot. These layers are flame laminated together (to reduce glue usage which can impede breathability) to create the 4 layer fabric. Breathability MVT* test method EN ISO 20345 of 35.2mg/cm². The fabric is constructed into a fully taped bootie on the inside of the product. Foams, backers and materials used in internal construction are non-wicking. Leathers, meshes and outer materials (such as the leathers) have a Durable Water Repellent finish to help prevent these materials absorbing water (which would make the product heavier, feel colder).
Ortholite is the leading manufacturer of insoles for the world’s leading footwear brands. Unlike traditional insoles, the compression set of these insoles is less than 5% over time so the cushioning and fit never change inside the shoe, providing maximum comfort every time you put your shoes on. Ortholite’s open-cell PU foam is 95% to 100% breathable, allowing air to circulate in and around the insole, keeping the foot cooler inside the shoe. This open-cell structure also creates a moisture management system, helping to move moisture away from the foot to provide a cooler, drier, healthier shoe environment. Insoles are machine washable, coming out like new every time while maintaining all of their performance benefits after washing. An eco-friendly 5% recycled rubber content which is the source of the signature black specks.
