These lightweight low-cut gaiters work well with trail-runners or cross-trainers. They are not waterproof but do help to keep sand and dirt out of your socks and boots. They have elastic on the top and bottom, hook and loop front attachment, and snaps to keep them in place.

I bought these gaiters to use in Zion when I was planning two backpacking trips there. Parts of the route we took were reputed to be very sandy. I used them the first day but they weren't as breathable as I would have liked. Also the elastic pinched my leg and they were uncomfortable. Great idea but I think these need a few design modifications.
