Patented ultra-lightweight microporous expanded PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) membrane. Durably waterproof and very breathable.
Flexible instep lacing with loops. Allows a tight fit, yet guarantees mobility.
Thanks to their cemented construction or double stitched construction our boots and shoes can be resoled as many times as required.

*Many footwear manufacturers categorise their boots into categories A, B, C and D. Hiking boots in category C are suitable even for multi-day treks on rough terrain with a heavy rucksack - like a paragliding backpack! They have a stiff sole which is suitable for flexible crampons; the hybrid step-in style ones, also known as 'semi-automatic'.

Hanwag Sky GTX Reviews
Looking at the build quality (German), I expect I will have these boots a long time.
They also arrived within 36 hours of me ordering them, so great service from Flybubble as well.
