Weight: 103 g/pair (incl. hook-and-loop band)
Materials: 95% Polyester and 5% Elastane, toe cap from 100% Nylon
Specially designed for the desert. Reinforced at the front and removable via hook & loop (so without the need to take off your shoes).Advice from WAA for the installation of the gaiters:
The ideal is to go to a shoemaker with experience, who can both sew and glue the gaiters on the shoes.If you want to do it by yourself, here are some informations:
The installation of the gaiters must be done on a clean and dry shoe.
Position the black hook & loop band (supplied with the gaiters) on the shoe and cut the exact length, that is to say that there should not be a double thickness of the scratch because the overlap of the 2 edges prevents gluing.
Draw a line on the shoe that will guide the scratch. This trait is only a reference.
WARNING! The line between the back and the front of the shoe should be straight and should not follow the shape of the shoe which is curved.
Possibility to position the hook & loop band temporarily with pins.
Fix the band either by gluing it or by sewing it.
If yo use glue, apply it on the entire surface of the band and the shoe using a spatula so as not to overflow.
Position the band on the shoe.
Support the band by exerting pressure, both inside and outside the shoe so that the entire surface is well glued. Allow the glue to dry (time indicated on the glue tube).
Check that the band does not move.
Good luck for this work a little bit delicate but that will bring you comfort during your race in the desert.
