This invention is a Class 10 cleanroom bootie. This cleanroom bootie is designed so that the "upper" is detachable for laundering purposes. The shoe itself is intended not to leave the "clean" area of the cleanroom. Each person accessing the cleanroom will have a dedi- cated pair of the lower portion of the Hamlin Cleanroom Bootie. The upper portion of the bootie is not dedicated and can be readily changed with other Hamlin Cleanroom Bootie uppers. The shoe section of the bootie is worn directly on the foot of the wearer (socks should be worn over the foot as normal). This bootie is constructed of materials allowing this shoe to be non-particolating. The purpose of this shoe is to contain particles normally released from lower legs and feet of the wearer and to not generate any substantial quantities of particles itself. See Exhibit 1.
