About Men's Gore-Tex Boots and Shoes:
Goretex is one of the most incredible materials ever invented. Seriously, it’s up there with Jello and silly putty. It works by allowing water vapor to pass easily through a membrane that is too small to allow liquid water to pass. The exact workings of Gore technology are kept super secret, Personally I think it’s magic and/or aliens. Footwear that uses Goretex is great, especially if you are doing some serious wetland hiking. Shoes and boots that are as waterproof as possible mean that your feet won’t get wet, and if they don’t get wet then blisters are less likely to form. Not having blisters is one of my favorite things to do.
Mens footwear that features Goretex means that you are taking extra precautions to protect yourself from the elements, especially water. Having waterproof shoes is more than just staying dry though, by not getting wet you can keep your body significantly warmer.
The best part about Goretex footwear is definitely how mysterious and powerful the material is. It’s power is only exceeded by its mystery. Batman probably uses a lot of Goretex, and I think Aquaman might be using it as well because he never has pruney toes.
