SIX STORIES VOL. 5: CHAPTER 2 – FOOTWEAR TECHNOLOGIES

    GET CLOSER TO YOUR ENVIRONMENT WITH GORE-TEX BRAND FOOTWEAR SOLUTIONS

    GORE-TEX brand technologies provide footwear solutions that are not only guaranteed to keep you dry, but comfortable.

    GET CLOSER TO YOUR ENVIRONMENT

    The GORE-TEX brand membrane is designed to work unseen; functional yet out-of-sight. GORE-TEX solutions work for you, ensuring your footwear remains waterproof, windproof, and breathable, thanks to a membrane that is bonded directly into the shoe. All GORE-TEX footwear products undergo rigorous stress-testing, to uphold our brand guarantee. GORE-TEX testing facilities around the world work to ensure GORE-TEX quality standards. For performance or lifestyle, our promise remains the same. Walking is discovering.

    GORE-TEX EXTENDED COMFORT

    GORE-TEX footwear technologies will let sweat vapour escape easily, without letting water in. Optimized heat release allows for optimum comfort, from outdoor use in the mountains to casual use downtown. GORE-TEX’s extremely thin membrane is durable, waterproof, windproof, and breathable. The membrane features over 9 billion microscopic pores per square inch. These pores are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, which means liquids cannot pass through.

    GORE-TEX SURROUND®

    GORE-TEX SURROUND® is the same waterproof, breathable protection that outdoor adventurers know and love, but even more breathable. Moisture and warmth are not only conducted outwards via the upper of the shoe, but also downwards through the GORE-TEX laminate into a ventilation grid. From there they can escape through large side sole openings. 360 degrees of breathability is the hidden secret to GORE-TEX SURROUND® casual lifestyle and outdoor lines. Now, there’s no reason to compromise on function or style.

    GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ THERMIUM™

    GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ THERMIUM™ provides warmth where you need it. Just the right amount of insulation protects your toes in cold weather. Tried and tested in cold chamber tests, our innovative, ultra-thin insulation provides warmth without the bulk of existing solutions. Stay warmer for longer, without overheating indoors.
