SURROUND™ Product Technology
Open Sole Structure
Shoes made with this construction can be easily recognized by their large vertical
sole openings, that allow excess heat and moisture to escape. At the same time a special
GORE-TEX® laminate that surrounds your feet from all sides prevents that water can
penetrate from outside. A protection layer, made from an extremely resistant fleece,
protects your feet and the GORE-TEX® laminate from stones or sharp objects.
With this construction, the openings are positioned at the side of the sole. Moisture
and warmth are not only conducted via the upper of the shoe, but also downwards through
the GORE-TEX® laminate into a ventilation grid. From there they can escape through
large side sole openings. Your feet stay cool, dry and comfortable even at higher temperatures.
Side Ventilation Outlets
The patented open construction allows moisture and warmth to escape from below the
foot through the GORE-TEX® laminate into the open structure of a spacer - and from
there out of the shoe via side ventilation outlets. As a result, your feet are drier.
Dry feet enhance your sense of well-being and reduce the risk of blisters and chafing.
Shoes can be constructed with regular outdoor soles adding important characteristics
such as grip or stability.
