The WAA Ultra gaiters are essential for any race in the desert. Originally developed for the Sables Half Marathon, they are worn by 80% of the finishers.
They keep sand out of your shoes, in any situation. The new model is reinforced at the front, offering better resistance to friction and a longer lifetime.
The fine and stretchy fabric offers the best possible combination for optimal comfort and breathability.
With their scratch closure on top, they can easily open to remove the shoes quickly while keeping the gaiters on.

- Remove the shoe without removing the gaiter
ADVICE FOR THE INSTALLATION OF GAITERS
We recommend going to a shoemaker with experience, who can both sew and glue the gaiters on the shoes.
If you want to do it by yourself, here are some points to keep in mind:
The installation of the gaiters must be done on a clean and dry shoe.
Position the black scratch (supplied with the gaiters) on the shoe and cut it to the exact length of the shoe.
Draw a line on the shoe that will guide the scratch. This is only a reference point.
IMPORTANT: The line between the back and the front of the shoe should be straight and should not follow the curved shape of the shoe.
Pin the scratch in place
Adhere the scratch by gluing it or by sewing it.
Gel glue is recommended.
Carefully apply the glue on the entire surface of the scratch and the shoe.
Position the scratch on the shoe.
Push the scratch in place by exerting pressure, both inside and outside the shoe so that the entire surface is well glued. Allow the glue time to dry (time indicated on the glue tube).
