GORE® CROSSTECH® EMS Fabric

As you respond to a medical emergency, time is of the essence, and you can’t afford to be slowed down by blisters on your feet or poor-fitting boots. These problems most commonly occur when impermeable (or not breathable) footwear allows sweat to build up between your foot, sock, and boot. GORE® CROSSTECH® footwear fabrics are breathable and therefore allow foot perspiration to escape — keeping your feet cooler and drier. That’s on top of the unsurpassed protection against liquids, blood, and body fluids you get only from GORE® CROSSTECH® fabric.

  • Why Our Fabric?

    Improved fit, comfort, and long-lasting protection — that’s what you get from boots made with GORE® CROSSTECH® footwear fabric.
