The aim of this project is to realize the design of a waterproof shoe to use in case of hostile atmospheric events, as rain and snow.
This result is achieved through the inclusion of a water-resistant gaiter on the top of the boot; it is extractable by the opening of a rubber-made band located near the ankle.
The opening is permitted by a stripe of velcro, that allows the extraction and the lift of the gaiter with a fast and practical gesture.
The realization of this sports footwear do not involve a high manufacturing cost, and is composed by a system of extraction of the gaiter that is practical for every kind of person.
