Gore tex school holiday shoes

A few months ago we were chosen to be “Gore Tex family ambassadors”. As the mm Summer holidays began, my children were all sent a lovely pair of shoes each, all made with the Gore tex material.

What is Gore Tex? – Gore-Tex is a waterproof, breathable fabric membrane and registered trademark of W. L. Gore and Associates. Invented in 1969, Gore-Tex is able to repel liquid water while allowing water vapor to pass through, and is designed to be a lightweight, waterproof fabric for all-weather use.

Gore tex is used in both clothing and footwear. It’s only when you feel the bottom of the shoe that you can actually feel the difference compared to others. 

Many shoe brands have shoes and boots made with the Gore-Tex material. The Gore Tex UK website lists all the shoes available. 

Izebella was sent these very pretty pink Primigi boots

 These are very pretty and girly with sparkly pieces all over. The soles of all Gore tex shoes are very similar with a breathable waterproof mesh. Unfortunately Izebellas shoes are a little too big for her at present. It’s just one of those things I guess that every brand of shoes differs in size and these Primigi boots seem very generous in size. I’m sure her feet will grow very soon and she will get lots of use out of them during the winter months. Izebella can’t wait until they fit her.

Next Jordannas shoes which again are rather pretty and still girly. 

 Jordanna has the “Super fit Cooly surround” they are in a deep pink/purple colour with grey and white tones and fasten with a Velcro strap. Again you can see the familiar “Gore-Tex” sole. Jordanna said the shoes were very comfortable to wear . There was no rubbing or blisters and her feet stayed dry in rain and puddles. 

These are also a perfect fit and perfect for weekends and wearing after school.

Finally Ryan who also has a pair of shoes from the Super Fit collection. These are the Swaggy surround

 In a lovely royal blue colour with white stripes and lace fastening. Ryan said they felt strange at first and different to other shoes he is used to but now he does not stop wearing them.  

   These also keep his feet very dry. Ryan often plays out on muddy fields with friends and the gore-Tex is the perfect material for puddles and wet feet.

We have all enjoyed testing out the new shoes and Izebella is looking forward to wearing hers soon too.
