Keeping cool on the path to success

Business wear and functionality – an unrivalled combination that can be found in the new GORE-TEX shoes featuring SURROUND™ product technology.

The constant ring of phones, the thud of another mountain of papers on your desk – the sound of the work rush is in the air. An important meeting is about to start and the temperature is rising. Work is full of a number of situations like this: situations that can make us sweat – and we often forget how uncomfortable sweaty feet can be.

GORE-TEX shoes with SURROUND™ product technology offer the perfect solution for high climate-comfort and a relaxed day at work. The SURROUND™ technology covers the foot but also allows for heat and sweat to pass through: an innovative construction that is visible in the soles of the shoe. No problem if you’re caught in the rain since GORE-TEX shoes with SURROUND™ product technology are durably waterproof – in any weather.

Often not realized until it’s too late; in the middle of that an important interview or meeting. As well as looking good, feeling good is a key to success and only when feel comfortable, will your performance be at your best. As sandals are not an option for everyday office wear, GORE-TEX shoes with SURROUND™ product technology are the perfect solution to help maintain a professional style and keep you cool no matter what challenges you may face.

How the innovative sole works

The secret of the SURROUND™ product technology is the GORE-TEX laminate, the linchpin of which is the waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX membrane. It has 1.4 billion micro pores per square centimeter, which are 20,000 times smaller than water droplets – but 700 times larger than the molecules of water vapor. This membrane surrounds your feet and lets excess heat and sweat pass through the vents in the innovative structure of the sole, without letting moisture enter from outside. Extensive product tests and optimum production quality guarantee that perfect function and top climate-comfort surround your feet all spring and summer long.

Visible function – technology meets design
Consumers can immediately and intuitively understand the new functionality, as the gaps in the structure of the sole clearly indicate the all-round breathability. The GORE-TEX brand partners can create all kinds of designs in various styles and colors – and for the first time incorporate the sole as an element of the overall design. A special, extremely resistant fleece, which is embedded between the GORE-TEX laminate and the upper, decorative layer, protects your feet and the GORE-TEX laminate from stones or sharp objects.

The innovative design, featured in styles by Clarks, Igi&Co, Fretz Men and Högl, is an example of elegance meets functionality – helping you on the path to success.
