Arctic incorporate IntelliSeal™, an ingenious technology that greatly enhances the durability and water resistance of shoe covers. The rubber coated binding works as an elastic seal that makes the shoe cover fit snugly around the circumference of the shoe. It reduces the tendency of shoe covers getting wet on the inside due to the wicking effect of the material along the edge of the shoe cover. The coating also greatly enhances durability by protecting the underlying fabric and thread.The Arctic shoe cover also challenges the existing paradigm of how to put on shoe covers. This new zipper-less shoe cover goes on before putting on the cycling shoes. This has several advantages: -Application on the shoe will be greatly improved-Better fitting on a wider array of shoes -No zipper means no irritation and a more minimalistic feel -Better waterproofing at the top.
