Reference information:
I have a feeling that 'casing' is another word for 'upper', the part of the shoe above the soles.

Boot uppers - The OTB Boot uppers are made of a combination of mesh nylon, reinforced with a TPU fabric laminate. TPU is Thermoplastic Polyurethane, which is a high-performance elastomer with excellent abrasion and chemical resistance, and high tensile strength. It doesn't hold water, and OTB's TPU is coated with a DWR for additional water resistance. Between the outer mesh and inner lining is reticulated foam padding, which also does not hold water. I found that the padding actually adds warmth to the boot, yet the boot is very breathable as it's open to the air. Additional rubber reinforcement is found at the heel and toes which also aids in climbing maneuvers.

agree  Tina Vonhof: I think so too, since it also mentions a 'padded tongue', which is part of the uppers.
