Breathability and Impermeability with GORE-TEX® SURROUND™
The new models, made with the GORE-TEX® SURROUND™ technology are enfolding the feet with a climatic comfort at 360°. How is it possible?
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. Perfect shoes to wear outside as well as inside also with high temperatures.
IGI&CO shoes having the new GORE-TEX® SURROUND™ technology are breathable and waterproof for long time.
The leather used for the uppers and linings of IGI&CO are first quality, carefully selected to ensure maximum comfort and hygiene.
Uppers and linings in top quality, soft leathers to guarantee maximum natural breathability under any condition.
Anatomic, leather covered removable insole. Soft with a shape that conforms to the sole of the foot. Anti-shock capsule on the heel in a bi-density material. Soft inner protective padding. Anatomic design accurately calibrated to respect the anatomic shape of the foot.
All the IGI&CO shoes, where the kind of construction allows it, are foreseen with a soft, usefull and anthomic removable leather- insole which is granting the maximum of hygiene and comfort.
Soles made with a blend of select materials with a low specific weight. Special production techniques create micro air particles inside the sole to make it lighter.
Radial treads, with an exclusive design that guarantees modular flexibility. Injection assembly: upper and sole joined without the use of glues or other elements that could reduce the shoe’s flexibility. The midsole used in the flexion area is made with a highly elastic material.

This ensures a sole that always adheres perfectly and that is light, flexible, long-lasting and highly resistant to blows. What’s more, polyurethane is an environmentally friendly biodegradable and recyclable material.
