About Forsake’s Women’s Duck Boot: All-season protection no longer requires a cold rubber boot. The Forsake Duck, made of premium waterproof leathers and suede, puts a modern sneaker spin on a heritage design. Instead of a cold rubber upper, Forsake's Duck features molded leather to maximize both waterproof performance and all-day comfort.

The Women’s Duck boot exhibits a waterproof/breathable membrane to keep feet dry and comfortable, a gusseted tongue to keep water and debris from entering the boot, a moisture wicking mesh lining that is quick-drying and anti-microbial to wick sweat away from feet, an open cell PU footbed that offers cushioned support, and a Peak-to-Pavement™ Outsole that provides traction and stability.
