Ortholite Insole

OrthoLite® is a manufacturer of proprietary foam insoles with ground breaking fetaures such as:

  • Lazy Recovery Foam conforms to the foot and instantly rebounds to original shape.
  • Impressions the slow recovery foam takes the shape of the foot over time.
  • X-40 High Rebound boasts an elasticity rating to over 40%.
  • ESD Static Control - protects against accumulation of static build up.
  • ECO environmentally friendly, bio-based formulation.
  • 3D Skive - foam cutting technology creates the sensation of walking on air.

OrthoLite® insoles for air-cushioned walking.

Harkila H-vent is a ventilating lining, that constantly lets any moisture be led away to keep the boot dry. The lining ends at the top of the boot with a perforated leather band that allows moisture to be transported away from the boot. To be found on the Forester models.

5mm Neoprene Lining

5mm Neoprene has excellent insulating properties. It is also used to make diving suits, it prevents the wearer's body heat from dissipating. Neoprene is composed of millions of tiny air bubbles, they give it thermal insulation properties and an elastic memory.

5mm Neoprene is the warmest insulating material used with wellington boots.

Harkila Approved to -20

Harkila Approved to -20°C

Harkila have tested this product to minus 20°C to check it performs at this temperature extreme. This means the sole will not crack and retains its grip and flexibility at these extremes. It also considers the insulating properties of the boot to be sufficient to keep most wearer's feet warm.

Zipped Wellington

Zipped Calf Wellington

Zipped wellingtons have a zip down the full length of the calf. This allows the bottom of the boot to open out allowing the ankle & foot to slide into place easier. This can be very important for people who have inflexible ankles or arthritic ankles etc.

The opening of the leg also makes it easier and more comfortable to tuck trousers into the boot giving a better and more comfortable fit.

Unzipping the boot before removal makes the wellington far easier to remove.

The zips are robust and should last years but do require cleaning and looking after to avoid problems.
