The new PRIMIGI GORE-TEX footwear lines have been conceived for children who are constantly on the go and are suitable for the widest range of weather conditions.
PRIMIGI GORE-TEX shoes will always keep your child's feet dry and protected because they breathe and are waterproof. They are high-performance shoes with the added style and fashion so typical of PRIMIGI.
All of the benefits of a GORE-TEX® membrane, combined with a special construction technique and rigorous quality standards, contribute to creating a unique product in terms of foot health, in any weather condition.
The secret lies in the microporous structure of the GORE-TEX® membrane that has approximately 1.4 billion pores per square centimeter.
These tiny pores – 20,000 times smaller than the smallest drop of water – prevent water from seeping into the shoe.
In addition, waterproof performance is guaranteed by the entire Gore ‘System' which, besides the membrane, also requires other specific components for compliance with the construction standards. This holds for the fabric, the linings and the leathers as well as for the construction techniques themselves, required to meet severe parameters and constantly subject to testing.
The GORE-TEX® membrane is also highly breathable. The pores in the membrane are 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapour, letting sweat escape. In fact, while the holes in the membrane are much smaller than any drop of water (and thus water cannot enter the shoe from the outside), they are, at the same time, much larger than any molecule of vapour or moisture that could form on the inside through normal sweating of the feet.
With the GORE-TEX® membrane, moisture is eliminated quickly, even during intense physical activity, to ensure the best thermal conditions for total foot comfort.
The collection is very broad and ranges from shoes for toddlers all the way to the larger sizes. Closing in the front with velcro or laces, the shoes are made of soft leathers adorned with trims and reinforced at all the right points.
There are boots with good treads for safe, comfortable outdoor use, or elegant, clean-cut boots for girls made of soft suede with internal zipper for simple, convenient closure. Whatever the style, all are engineered to ensure utmost protection against the rigors of the winter season.
PRIMIGI shoes with GORE-TEX® deliver a special combination of total breathability and waterproofness, keeping feet dry and protected against the cold and overheating with extraordinary health benefits. Thanks to the microscopinc pores of the GORE-TEX® membrane, rain and water are not able to penetrate while excess heat and sweat escape easily.
THE SHOES FOR THE RAIN AND THE SUN
Thanks to the PRIMIGI GORE-TEX® shoes made with the new SURROUND™ technology, the feet are always dry and comfortably fresh.
Rain and water cannot pass through the micro-holes of the GORE-TEX®-membrane, but the heat and sweat in excess are coming-out through the upper and through the special features of the outsole, having large holes on it.
The perfect shoes to wear outside as well as inside also with high temperatures.
From the garden to the living-room, after the school or in the park the PRIMIGI GORE-TEX® shoes with SURROUND™ technology are ready to face each situation, when the sun shines as well as when it rains.
PRIMIGI shoes having the new GORE-TEX® SURROUND™ technology are breathable and waterproof for long time.
The GORE-TEX® membrane on the inside of the shoe does not require any special care. It is an incredibly stable high-tech material and, as long as it is not perforated or torn, will always remain waterproof. Proper, regular care will ensure top performance and extend the life of your shoes.
Clean the outside of the shoe with a cloth or brush and tepid water when not otherwise indicated in the washing instructions for individual products. Remove sand, stones and dirt from inside the shoe. If necessary, take out the arch support and shake out.
Allow to dry naturally at a moderate temperature. Avoid direct heat sources.
