New Boots From New Equine Wear
'PADUPS' for leisure riders a 'first' in protective boot design
one hundred per cent shock absorbent
New Equine Wear, the
specialist protective boot manufacturer, has achieved a range of interchangeable
boots designed specifically for the leisure rider. Painstaking development
means each style may be fitted to either near or offside leg, and either
front or and hind leg, with reinforced areas protecting either cannon
bone or tendon as required.
An ultra tough strike pad is made from thermo-moulded, high density and
shock-absorbing foam, as used in shoe soling, a process also developed
by the company. This incredibly durable material is already used by New
Equine Wear competition boots at the highest levels of sport. Patents
'PADUPS' are lined with light, comfortable orthopaedic 'Airoflow' foam,
deep-channelled in a revolutionary diamond pattern. This innovative lining
'pumps' air across the skin surface by the movement of the horse's leg.
Thus the boot positively ventilates rather than merely 'breathes'.
Any dirt particles move into the channels, obviating chafing. The foam
also allows air to flow through the boot even in deep mud - a common problem
for riders - ensuring a vacuum cannot form and the boot does not slip
down the leg.
Fitting and looking after PADUPS is simple, thanks to a unique, double
velcro-style strap system called 'Flatloop'. Two sturdy straps are fed
through slots in a tough, flexible shell covering one half of the boot,
then fasten back on themselves, giving a very secure fit.
All materials used in PADUPS are waterproof, meaning the wettest mud and
dirt will just slide off.
These truly low-maintenance
boots can be washed in a domestic washing machine at 40 C., hosed off,
or brushed in soapy water. Shake off any water droplets and ride away!
Instant drying time guaranteed!
Seams are double stitched with rot-proof thread and all materials used
are shock-absorbent, giving the best possible protection.
