Haglofs Observe II Gore-Tex Walking Shoes
Lightweight, waterproof, and highly breathable, Haglofs Observe II GT walking shoe is a must-have for the active person. Developed with ASICS, it features tough rubber and a supremely stable chassis.Gore-Tex Upper
The upper of the Observe II Gore-Tex Walking Shoes are constructed with a water repellent polyester ripstop for ultimate durability. Ripstop fabrics are woven fabrics made out of nylon, using a special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. The upper also features GORE-TEX Extended Comfort Footwear which is designed for indoor and outdoor use in moderate and warmer conditions or during higher activity levels. They are durably waterproof combined with optimised breathability, offering enduring weather protection. Water stays on the outside while perspiration can easily escape from the inside. Thanks to their non-insulated construction, they are the ideal solution for people who value outstanding climate comfort and heat release. Lastly, the upper is developed with an Ecsaine heel collar lining for maximum comfort and durability, while a molded rubber reinforced toe and rubber heel ensures increased protection from loose debris and rocky terrain.SpEVA Midsole
Equipped with Cushioning and stability. These two requirements are combined in the revolutionary ASICS GEL system. With GEL rearfoot cushioning, it provides good shock absorption so the foot feels supported. The GEL Cushioning System consists of various GEL components and is made from fatigue-proof silicone material resulting in a consistently high inertia of the GEL components when subjected to pressure. The material's inertia stabilises the roll-over movement upon first ground contact. The Observe II GTX is also fitted with the SpEVA midsole material which is the optimised version of the traditional ASICS EVA material. It consists of rubber-like macromolecules that extremely quickly regenerate after each impact and assume their original shape. The next step is permanently effectively cushioned and the forward movement of the foot is accelerated.
While cushioning is important, the shoe also ensures maximum support, with the use of a stabilite ESS chassis for stability and torsion control. Also developed with the I.G.S (Impact Guidance System) which allows the foot to perform in a more natural manner.AHAR Outsole
The outsole of the shoe is made with AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Resistance Rubber) which is used on the heavy contact areas to prevent wearing. For when the weather isn't great outsole, the outsole is also equipped with a Wet Grip Rubber which rice husk for enhanced grip in wet conditions.Features

Cleaning: It is important to clean Haglofs' various footwear ranges using a soft sponge under lukewarm running water; dry the footwear off with a rag. For best comfort and foot climate, also clean the inside of the footwear now and then using a soft brush and lukewarm water. Remove the footbed before washing. To speed up drying, fill each boot or shoes with newspaper and let the paper absorb the majority of the moisture before removing it to allow the footwear to finish drying. Regardless of whether you clean the inside or outside, make sure your footwear dries at room temperature, never with the aid of a heater or drying cabinet (excess heat may for instance cause the leather to crack). Cleaned footwear is best stored at room temperature using a shoe tree. Never store dirty shoes.
Before first use, treat boots and shoes with waterproofing, including the laces and tongue. After drying, brush Nubuck and suede products with a suede brush to regain that buffed look. A suede brush can also be used for lighter cleaning. Treat the cleaned surfaces of boots and shoes regularly with waterproofing. Some agents are best applied to the surface while it is still a little damp and the weather pores are open so that the waterproofing is able to penetrate in depth (follow the instructions on the packaging). It is advantageous Nubuck and suede boots and shoes with wax for extra protection against moisture and wear; note that this will cause the surface to darken and take on a different appearance -this is perfectly normal.Manufacturer product code - HGL4956202FH
