  • GORE-TEX Fabrics support your walking on rainy and snowy days.

  • GORE-TEX Fabrics:
  • The functionality of GORE-TEX Footwear keeps feet dry with GORE-TEX Fabrics (GORE-TEX Membrane laminated with a highly functional fabric) which combine waterproofness and breathability. The GORE-TEX Membrane is an extremely thin film-like material and has numerous pores, the size of each pore being smaller than water droplets but larger than water vapor, so water droplets do not penetrate but water vapor of the sweat escapes. Even on rainy days comfort is ensured inside of the shoes without getting wet.
