ALL-ROUND DRY AND COMFORTABLE
GORE-TEX® footwear engineered with SURROUND® product technology offer 360 degree climate comfort. They are highly breathable all-around without compromising on durable waterproof protection. Your feet stay dry and comfortable even at warmer conditions.
Moisture and warmth are not only conducted via the upper of the boot, but also downwards through the GORE-TEX® laminate into a ventilation grid. From there they can escape through large side sole openings.
This fine material has important features such as long-term waterproofing capacity, excellent resistance to the most extreme temperatures and high resistance to wear and tear. The special microporous structure of the GORE-TEX® fabric in expanded PTFE contains around 1.4 thousand million microscopic pores per square centimetre. These pores are approximately 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapour. So while water cannot penetrate the GORE-TEX® membrane in liquid form, sweat (water vapour) can easily evaporate. This results is a completely waterproof barrier that means the boot can be used in all climates, guaranteeing maximum comfort and optimal breathability.
