Primigi technology with GORE-TEX® A very innovative step forward: PRIMIGI with a GORE-TEX® membrane
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.
