Understatement is also a statement! The unfussy, cool technical look is what attracts attention to Maverick GTX.
There’s plenty more to see behind this tough, cool façade. The new Utility sole makes our maverick resilient to slippery roads and snowy pathways, leaving them behind in self-confident leaps and bounds. Snow and rain are no problem either, since the boot is equipped with a waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex® membrane. Whether you take a trip to the market, go sledging with friends or enjoy a beer in the new pub, Maverick GTX is ‘good to go’. The shaft is made of flexible, abrasion-proof synthetic material to provide the necessary manoeuvrability. Stylish and tastefully matched TPU elements fortify the lacing section and protect the material around the sole to ensure rocks and heavy braking when sledging don’t cause any damage.
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.
