What is GORE-TEX®?
Our GORE-TEX® products keeping your feet dry and at a good temperature for outdoor adventures or city exploring. GORE-TEX® technology is unique and renowned all over the world, but what is it exactly?
Our GORE-TEX® products are layered with a GORE-TEX® membrane that protects you.
Pores in the membrane allow water vapour from your sweat to pass through, but they're small enough to prevent water drops from coming in.
In addition, a water repellent coating causes water to roll off instead of sinking in.
How to care
Mud, water and dirt lead to excess wear and tear. Follow the advice below to ensure you keep your GORE-TEX® shoes longer.
- Using lukewarm water, remove dirt and mud with a cloth or brush.
- Don’t expose your GORE-TEX® shoes to direct heat. Lay them upside down with some newspaper inside.
- Don’t use products containing wax, grease or silicon.
- The GORE-TEX® membrane is not accessible and doesn’t need care.
How to wear
Depending on the socks you wear, the GORE-TEX® membrane can be more efficient. As cotton socks store moisture, we recommend using wool or wool blend socks.
