Material Guide

BOOTS

CERTECH®
Cellular Rubber Technology is the manufacturing technology behind Lundhags cellular rubber bottom. Cellular rubber is a yeast rubber with many micro air bubbles that provide a light and flexible material, which is completely waterproof. To describe the differences there are different versions numbered 2.0-5.0, where higher numbers represent a more stable or warmer design. The same construction can be available in both Normal/Regular or Opti lasts. The new Ws versions have slightly softer soles and thinner insulation to provide a customized flex.

REGULAR LAST
A further development of the proven Normal last. Built for Nordic feet with a broad base plate and high instep dimensions. Now with a straighter toe and a length adapted for extra socks.

OPTI LAST
A wider last with a lower instep to prevent the foot from sliding forward. A redeveloped toe box provides more room for the toes.

OPTI WS LAST
Opti Ws last was developed on request by our female users and is slightly narrower. Now with more room for the toes, which provides better comfort.

INSOLE
The insole is built from a 3 mm fiber material and has a built-in steel shank. Our strongest models use Texon T70, a fiber material with a polymer core for stability and torsional rigidity.

EVA  ISOLATION
An extra layer of EVA with a hardness of 35 ShA is used to improve cushioning and resistance to the cold. The thickness together with the insole effects the flex of the boot. Thickness of 4 or 6 mm.

SPLIT LINING
Split leather from cow is used as lining in the Certech® construction for stability and moister absorption. Thickness of 1.0 mm.

CLARINO® MICROFIBER
Polyurethane/polyamide microfibers provide a light, flexible material with great durability. It is used as a lining material in both Certech-constructions and 3-layer shafts in the most exposed places. Thickness 1.0 mm or 1.4 mm.

VIBRAM® TRACTION SOLE.
Our outer soles are made of Vibram®, built with EVA to provide cushioning and a rolling step. The traction pattern is found only on Lundhags’ boots and was developed together with Vibram®.

FULL GRAIN LEATHER
Full grain leather uses the best parts of the hide. Nubuck is a full grain leather that has been gently brushed to give the surface a different character. The Nubuck surface breathes better and is easier to re-impregnate. The leather is impregnated directly at the tannery and no fluorocarbons are used in the process, which takes place in a closed system. Thicknesses of 2.0-2.2 mm.

TPU TOECAP
The newly developed TPU toecap forms a strong attachment of the sole to the shoe by distributing forces over a larger area. The TPU toecap also protects against wear and extends the life of the shoe.

PERWANGER® SPLIT LEATHER

A finer split leather from cow that is robust, has excellent breathability, is waterrepellent and hardwearing. Thicknesses of 1.8-2.0 mm.

NEOPRENE
Neoprene is used in our 3-layer shafts for stability without absorbing moisture. The material spreads impacts and protects the foot from sharp objects. Used in different layers depending on the desired effect. Thickness of 4 mm.

PORON® SLOW REBOUND
Poron is used in our most advanced 3-layer shafts to provide better stability with less weight and thickness. Through its slow rebound and cushioning effect the shaft is very stable, yet flexible. Thickness 3 mm.

HEEL FIT CONTROL
An extra Neoprene or Poron cushion that covers the seam between the bottom and shaft to provide an improved heel grip and stability.

RINGS AND HOOKS
Our rings/hooks and rivets are manufactured from iron or copper/iron alloys for maximum resistance. We use a nickel-free, High Resistance Treatment to provide additional protection against corrosion.

CAMBRELLE®
100 % Polyamide produces a lining material with a high level of wear resistance and moisture absorption. 150g/m².

FELT
The felt in the foot beds and inner boot consists of 60% Wool, 25% Polyester and 15 % Viscose. Thickness of 5 mm.


CLOTHING
