Precisely placed, anatomically targeted dual density cushioning reduces strain on the ball of the foot, supporting the biomechanics of walking - the foot’s natural gait - and providing lasting comfort.
The unique open-cell structure of an Ortholite® high-performance footbed delivers long-lasting cushioning plus breathability and moisture-wicking.
Specially developed by our own experts, a responsive underfoot gel cushions the foot and flexes with its natural movement, helping to stop active feet from getting tired. Integrated technology also absorbs impact from the bottom and sides.

A waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX membrane combined with a high-performance lining insulates against the cold. Wet or cold, feet stay warm and dry.
Unlike conventional boat shoes that release water through the sole, water is quickly and continuously expelled through small ducts in the sidewall, reducing the risk of slipping, sliding and aquaplaning.
Specially engineered rubber soles made from a durable abrasion-resistant compound deliver maximum grip and stability in dry as well as wet conditions.
A gently curved, ‘rocker’ sole rolls from heel to toe with the motion of walking, minimising the amount the foot has to bend and flex, conserving energy and reducing fatigue.
Machine washable styles can be washed at 30°C with a non-bio detergent.
