Sympatex is the thinnest membrane of its type and is highly breathable; it will also stretch up to 300% without affecting performance.
             
  Nubuck is top-grain cow rawhide leather that has been sanded or buffed on the grain side, or outside, to give a slight nap of short protein fibres, producing a velvet-like surface. It is very resistant to wear, which ensures strength, comfort and durability.     Leather lined boots give added comfort, totally natural product that breathes, gives warmth and protection from the elements.
