Slurry-proof Shoes / Shoes

Slurry-proof Shoes

In rainy days, cuffs usually get contaminated as the splashing of mud water by the back heel of your shoes, which turns out to be troublesome to us. Within this design, a piece of leather that holds the same raw materials as the shoes will be tied to the vamp on the back heel. When it clears up, leather is tightly connected with vamp so the shoes are nothing but normal ones while it begins to rain, leather will be pulled down to make up the platform to resist the dirty water. So it’s quite an effective way to avoid the embarrassment of being annoyed by the contamination of vamp when walking in the rain.
