A.Ankle gaiters are designed for to keep your ankles dry and protected from the rain, mud or dust and will also keep small stones out of your shoes. They secure themselves to your boots by means of an underfoot strap and optional hook if your boots have a gaiter loop at the toe. Should your shoe or boot not have a gaiter loop you can attach this to the front lace. The draw cord adjusters allow for a good fit and the secure front closure of a full zip, Velcro and press studs keep them in place. They are ideal for walking through shorter wet grass and hiking in muddy or rocky terrains.
