In collaboration with a rubber-boot manufacturer, a building-materials company developed this boot for its Ytong brand. The boot is handmade of natural rubber and reflects the properties of aerated concrete. In home construction, Ytong stands for protection against heat in summer and cold in winter. Thanks to a special climate membrane, the rubber boot guarantees optimum comfort for feet all year round.
