i-shield, created by Hi-Tec, is a new technology that gives footwear superior water repellency as well as stain resistance. The low-viscosity liquid provides an invisible guard for all open types of leather and most types of fabric and mesh. When combined with Hi-Tec's Dri-Tec technology - a breathable, waterproof bootie membrane - footwear becomes completely waterproof and totally protected.
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.
