Underneath, the GORE-TEX membrane closes the boot waterproof, but makes it pleasantly breathable. In addition, the waterproof YKK zipper protects against moisture. High quality fleece ensure the highest level of thermal insulation up to. The Raptor PU ensures perfect grip on snow and ice.
Caring for membrane footwear
Membrane footwear is also no stranger to water!
After cleaning and drying your footwear, boots with a protective membrane must under no circumstances have oily or greasy care products rubbed into them. Such products help to make leather goods waterproof, but in membranes they cause the build-up of water between the membrane and the outer material, preventing the release of humidity. As a rule, membrane footwear doesn’t require any care after cleaning. However, although the membrane ensures the shoe or boot remains basically waterproof, the uppers should still be impregnated regularly with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) spray. Usually, such footwear has already been DWR-impregnated prior to sale. Nevertheless, this protection can wear off with intensive use. This protective effect can be regenerated by coating outer surfaces with one of the many DWR sprays on the market. It is far easier to impregnate shoes with a spray than it is to immerse an item in a DWR solution, as is often the case with clothing.
Hooks and eyelets can be protected from rust and corrosion by applying a dab of Vaseline or wax. There are special sprays to combat unpleasant smells. The insoles can wear out and should be replaced regularly, since they absorb the majority of the sweat produced and are subject to the greatest amount of wear.
