"De-mud" Shoes / Outdoor Shoes of "De-mud" net

This outdoor shoe can deal with the special circumstances of outdoor activities such as field expedition, field trip, hiking and so on; you probably often encountered this situation that when you walk on the road of muddy surface, inevitably the thick mud will be attached to the pattern gaps of the soles. And this mud which you can hardly get rid of firmly stick to the soles, and you maybe stomp or take off your shoe and knock the shoe strongly against wall to get rid of the mud, or find some sticks to dig out the mud.
These methods are clumsy and are not very efficient, however this design makes the best use of the pattern gaps of rubber shoe soles, which produces the outdoors shoes of " de-mud net" to solve this problem. When the shoe sticks thick mud, you only need to loose the fixed bands on the heel and the shoe arch part of" de-mud net". Then holding a fixed band of heel part, you could strip “de-mud net” of the sole, the mud will be fallen off by bending deformation of “de-mud net” itself, After that "de-mud net" can be re-installed to shoe soles. The whole process is easy and convenient.
