Technically Speaking

How does it work?

Sandwiched between the premium outer shoe leather and the soft inner lining lies a hidden, ultra-thin GORE-TEX® membrane. Every microscopic pore in the membrane is small enough to prevent water gettng into the shoe, but big enough to allow moisture from inside to escape, keeping your feet dry and comfortable and leaving you free to enjoy a scenic walk anywhere and in any weather.

How does it work?

Testing Times

Our GORE-TEX® shoes and boots undergo rigorous testing to ensure that they meet the required standards of comfort, breathability and waterproofness.
Our partners at GORE approve all of our footwear designs and test our products at their factories using state-of-the-art machinery.
Above all, our GORE-TEX® shoes need to be completely water-tight, so each style is put through two essen al tests to make sure that not a drop of water from outside
can permeate the surface.

The Walking Simulator

The Walking Simulator

Test shoes are placed on flexible foot forms equipped with moisture sensors that are subject to 200,000 steps in a water bath. If moisture enters the shoe, the testing stops and the sensor indicates the source of the leak. The shoe or boot must then be modified and submitted for another round of testing, to prove that they meet the rigorous GORE-TEX® footwear standards.

The Centrifugal Tester

The Centrifugal Tester

Boots filled with water are spun at high speeds. The resulting pressure forces water through even the smallest of holes to discover leaks. All of our GORE-TEX® styles are built around our signature comfort features, so not only do they keep your feet bone dry, they also provide superior comfort and support from the moment you step into them, until the moment you kick them off at the end of the day.
