I thought it would be useful to gather information and experience of the members of the Forum on the topic of Gore-Tex and shoes.
Especially because right now some find in travel stores shoes without Gore-Tex.

Here are some topics to start the discussion:

1. are shoes with Gore-Tex guarantees dry feet?

2 if necessary, gorts shoes with best practices for trips to Israel? If not then what?

Here are my answers and I hope others will try and answer topics.


I guess another Gore-Tex intact not penetrate water shoes.
My experience with the one I tried is ammbrna held several months after that. Here's what Chris Townsend tells about his book:

Many boots now feature linings
... Made from waterproof vapor-permeable membranes such as Gore-Tex ...
These certainly make the boots waterproof when they are new,
But once the membrane is torn or
Punctured, it will leak. How long they keep
Water out varies. The membrane itself is ' fragile ',
And if your feet move in your boots, the membranes
Can wear out very quickly. Some
People swear by them, others swear at them.
My experience suggests that such linings
LSAT LOGEST can calculate and perform best in boots that have few seams and are made from
Nylon and suede leather rather ... than. Membranes
Laminated to leather are less likely
To be cut by tiny specks of sharp grit than those
Laminated to more open-weave synthetic
Fabrics.
Then he says this shoe is supposed to hold a few months.

This third edition of the handbook 2005 backpackers

There many people that walk a few months for a couple of years of touring. Others follow walks or use everyday shoe.

Extra points to mention:
Gore-Tex while breathing (i.e. allows perspiration to exit lock) but much less membranes not immunity. So who has a tendency to sweat more in the feet may find the foot wet because sweats even if the rains failed.
In addition, Gore-Tex dry very slowly (could take days) compared to membranes airiness not immunity.
Some people prefer not waterproof shoe but quickly ttivsh, and especially when you ammbrna not holding up (and then stays with shoe that really breathes and dries slowly and also immune to water.)

Another thing to note is that should prevent the penetration of water into the lock. For example by rain pants long enough or leggings.

Colombia has a different kind of protection against moisture. Their breathing membrane reasonably but walk 15 minutes rain will soak the sock. Here too the quality protection wanes quickly and after a few months of walking the prison was disappeared.

If it shows in General on Colombia's out-dry, not the specific shoe model, it sounds very bad.

It sounds like the ultimate solution lartz is ventilated shoe and totally opaque, and one with full leather + epidemic disease, excursions.

But suppose you don't want to keep two pairs, you find yourself just settle on airy shoe? 7 minutes enough mountains of rain and the shoe will be soaked. And the Governor has occasionally rain-and lots and lots of mud?

Eli, I think the solution is two pairs of shoes. In my case I have with Gore-Tex and now I'm going to buy an airy shoe.

If there is only one option and they travel the country well ventilated because very few times going for the average traveler to travel in wet and windy weather.

I have two pairs of unusual fan.
Two leather I m. applying wax to exit.
O-almost always used the first shoe. I used to go out in the rain in a storm or long poncho, pants leggings opaque water if necessary.

So let's say you have only a couple of fan. And you want to wet (not Scotland just half stormy weekend in February in Galilee), what then?

So going with wet shoes.
Most of the shoes sold in the country claiming they were sealed for water shoes with lots of stitching, fabric, thin skin or not.

If you want watertight shoe you should be prepared to pay a lot of money and be willing to compromise on comfort, softness and weight many times not suitable for heiking.

I mean I don't have speed and a lot of experience. Not very wet, and walks in the shoes.

Deliberately talked about major in iinis. I mean no rain for hours. These showers occasionally, low temperatures and lots of mud.

In such a situation, in my shoe ("apparently"), the foot remains dry to very moist in between.
In contrast, shoe and Lavra, penetration after a few min walk will be completely wet (muddy). I very much prefer the first option.   Suppose that continues for several days in the weather, go all soggy shoes sequence?

I think the two pairs of f are in the same situation. Just the shoe with the membrane takes longer to get wet.
If the trip continues a few days actually have an advantage to lighter and airy shoe because they dry faster.

Are you asking what I was doing specific
On a trip with rain forecast was probably dating my leather shoes.
2.8 mm + leather Gore-Tex. And taking a Gore-Tex.
I'd still probably wet in rain but significantly less.
Yes, it's heavy, but I prefer to carry a little than wet feet.
Some people will tell you.
But always when you make something you lose elsewhere.



If you can afford it, has an interest in holding a couple of pairs of shoes that are suitable for all kinds of situations. If not then you need to make adjustments and try to get along with.
