Whatever lies in your path, get through it with i-shield.

Created by Hi-Tec, this new technology gives footwear superior water repellency as well as stain and oil resistance. The solvent-soluble, low-viscosity liquid provides an invisible guard for all open types of leather and most types of fabric and mesh.

When combined with our Dri-Tec technology - a breathable, waterproof bootie membrane - footwear becomes completely waterproof and totally protected - ideal for the most challenging trails and city adventures.


Hydrophobic - i-shield is an invisible layer on the surface of the material that guards the footwear by repelling water.

Stay Clean - With its stain resistance, i-shield also keeps footwear cleaner.

Lightweight - Because i-shield doesn't absorb water, footwear is light and therefore more comfortable.

Breathable - The i-shield process only enhances the surface of the footwear, so it's as breathable after treatment as it was before.

Environmental - i-shield is a post-production process operating at room temperature and using only the chemical needed to coat the shoe. The chemicals used comply with environmental standards.
