Our first Gore-Tex shoe is a low profile, higher performance multi-sport shoe. This is the latest Merrell Chameleon which combines the best features of the various Chameleon models that came before it as well as elements of other best selling Merrell shoes. For added waterproof protection, Merrell has also utilised a Gore-Tex (GTX) membrane.

As a manufacturer, Merrell are renowned for the comfort and fit of their footwear. This model in particular is focussed on offering superior fit, breathability and grip. The most obvious feature is the Stability Arm which is designed to lock the heel in place to prevent your foot from moving while walking or running. Meanwhile mesh ports along the sides allow air to flow freely through the shoe, keeping your feet cool. Combined with the Gore-Tex membrane, the shoe remains breathable, but also waterproof. Although with this much mesh, we wouldn’t recommend walking through a stream in these shoes, otherwise these are perfect for walking in the rain as well as wet and muddy trails. Finally, the specially made Chameleon3 sole made by Vibram offers excellent grip wherever your adventure might take you and despite all their extra features, these shoes are still light enough for a full day of hiking.

Next up is the Hedgehog GTX XCR from North Face. This is also a technical multi-sport shoe that utilises a large amount of mesh to provide fast cooling breathability. However, North Face has employed the more powerful Gore-Tex XCR membrane for superior waterproof protection. So you certainly won’t be going swimming in these shoes, but against heavy rain, wet grass and other every day encounters with water, your socks should stay nice and dry.

The North Face Hedgehog while taking its name from the incredibly spiky grip which gives it excellent traction on all manner of surfaces. Meanwhile the Northotic footbed, EVA midsole, Heel X-2 02 air pod and trainer-like design makes them incredibly comfortable and exceptionally well cushioned.

Incredibly light, hard wearing and well cushioned, this multi-sport shoe is perfect for walking, trail running and general everyday use. We wouldn’t recommend wearing these in the dead of winter, but for the other 3 seasons, the North Face Hedgehog is an excellent Gore-Tex shoe and that comes in a variety of colours for both men and women.

Why Gore-Tex?

Guaranteed to keep you dry, the Gore-Tex membrane is made up of microscopic pores that let air escape, but keep water out. This is because each pore is smaller than a molecule of water, but bigger than a molecule of moisture. So water can’t get in through the gaps, but moisture can still escape, taking any excess heat with it so that your feet stay cool and dry during your outdoor pursuits.

While many people trust in Gore-Tex to provide waterproof protection, the membrane also maintains the breathability of the shoe and is lightweight, cold resistant and seam sealed to keep out the elements, even when your boots have been well worn.

This is why so many people put their faith in Gore-Tex to provide comfort and protection as part of their outdoor equipment. To reinforce the quality of their product, the Gore Tex brand promise is that all Gore Tex technologies are guaranteed to be completely waterproof, windproof and breathable for the life of the product.

So when it comes to breathable waterproof protection, it’s got to be Gore-Tex! We have a huge range of Gore-Tex shoes at Fitness Footwear with our Free UK delivery.
