In wet and snowy conditions, your feet will still stay snug and dry, thanks to the anti-debris mesh of the updated Sense Ride 3.

The easy, quicklace system allows you to avoid messing with laces. Just tighten them and
tuck the string under the laces on the tongue. When tightened fully, the shoe feels like you’re snug as a bug in a rug.
