What Makes Waterproof Work Boots Worth Their Money?

Weatherproof! Why GORE-TEX® Work Boots are HIGHLY Recommended.

Waterproof, Windproof & Breathable.
GORE-TEX® Is The Ultimate Defence Material Against The Elements. 

Inspired by fashion, performance, and support — boots are a staple in the wardrobe of both men and women around the world. Due to their robust construction, many boots are designed to perform best in adverse conditions. Such as mud, water, sand, snow, and ice. One of the most popular proprietary technologies utilized across many of the top-footwear brands is GORE-TEX® waterproofing.

GORE-TEX® technology has been tested and proven for many years and can add immediate value to any boot. Elten has over 100 years of experience developing some of the best work and recreation boots in the global market. Recognizing the value in GORE-TEX® technology, Elten has built it into many of our products.

Here are some of the key factors that make them so highly recommended.

A Long History Of Performance.

A Top Choice In Waterproof Safety Footwear Technology

Founded in 1969, GORE-TEX® waterproofing technology has been developed for footwear and clothing of various types. Over their history, they have partnered with many of the top work gear and outdoor clothing companies to use GORE-TEX® waterproof liners in their products. As their popularity grew, so did the impressive performance of their products.

The Continuous Evolution Keeping GORE-TEX® At Peak Development

GORE-TEX® is primarily a technology and not an apparel brand, because of this they can focus much of their budget on product research and development. These efforts help continuously improve the performance of their technology, without making any sacrifices. 

While a dedicated outdoor brand may have the capabilities to develop their own waterproofing technology in-house, several other factors that go into operating their business can take precedence, and leave this technology development at the wayside. GORE-TEX®’s concentrated efforts help them continuously produce a product that is at peak development and performance.

They Go Beyond Waterproof—To Being Weather Proof.

Dry Safety Footwear - Every Season Of The Year

While we have been referring to GORE-TEX® as a waterproofing technology, these liners are truly weatherproof. It offers both advanced protection from the wind and ventilation for maintaining a comfortable internal environment. By having a permeated fabric that traps out water droplets and allows sweat to escape, these liners effectively keep your boot waterproof and your feet ventilated - no matter what season of the year it is.

Dedicated to delivering the highest-performance work and recreation boots possible, Stitchkraft offers many of our men and women’s boots with GORE-TEX® technology. All of our boots are specially designed for high-performance and tough climates.

All of these factors make GORE-TEX® the perfect choice for professionals who work all year round. Rain, mud, heat, humidity, or a mix of all four—GORE-TEX® footwear guaranteeing dry feet covers it all.
