Membranes and waterproof trekking boots
For those trekking in which we need to protect ourselves from water the most suitable is, of course, choose waterproof trekking boots. The protection afforded to us by these models lies in the waterproof membranes that they incorporate in their interior, which will keep us dry and protect us from getting wet any time.
Speaking of waterproof membranes is synonymous with talking about Gore-Tex. In spite of being a single membrane this offers us a wide range of variants -Gore- Tex Insulated Comfort, Gore-Tex Performance Comfort or Gore-Tex Surround, among others- Always give us the best response at any time.
The variants of Gore-Tex Comfort
One of the membranes that we can find is the Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort. This fabric is designed for use in cold climates, since it combines lasting impermeability, optimum breathability and good thermal insulation thanks to its insulating lining. With this membrane the water and the snow do not penetrate the footwear while the sweat is easily transferred to the outside.
For summer trekking in which temperatures can be higher, Gore-Tex offers the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membrane. This fabric gives us an optimal breathability, thus removing all our sweat. On the other hand, there is also the Gore-Tex Esteneu Comfort membrane that protects us from the elements with its durable impermeability and breathability optimized. With it, water does not penetrate inside the footwear and sweat is easily evacuated to the outside.
The innovation of the Gore-Tex Surround
For those moments when we need the highest breath, Gore-Tex has developed what we know as Gore-Tex Surround. This patented design transfers moisture and heat through the Gore-Tex laminate to an open structure space, and from there, it is evacuated to the outside by lateral ventilation. The result is a few dry feet and a greater comfort.
Types of soles in trekking boots
In order to know which ones best adapt to our needs, we must value another of the important aspects of this footwear: the type of sole. This element will provide us with grip and traction when walking, so it is essential to know in depth the types of soles that the market offers us.
Among the models of soles we find Vibram soles are one of the most common, and are characterized by being manufactured by a special rubber compound that guarantees an optimal grip on the floor. They incorporate an innovative drawing that makes them very adherent in any type of condition, either on dry or wet ground. At the same time, this material is not affected neither by high nor by low temperatures, keeping its original traction intact on all surfaces.
In addition, the Vibram rubber soles are very durable and durable so if we have trekking boots with these soles, we can be sure we have a single for a long time. Finally, it should also be noted that they can be cleaned very easily with some warm water and a brush.
Another of the most common soles is those of Contagrip, developed by the brand Salomon. Contagrip soles have a different composition depending on the area of ??the sole involved. Thus, the areas that are more likely to wear out before include more denser and more resistant compounds to slow down their wear and tear. In other areas, like the central area, they use compounds of lower density that offer a little more flexibility and take hold.
Length of the cane in the trekking boots
Another aspect that we must take into account when buying a trekking boots is what length of cane has the model we need. This element has a double importance: firstly, the high cane models offer a greater support on the foot and the ankle area. Instead, medium cane models sacrifice some of this support in favor of less rigidity, and they are also lighter trekking boots.
On the other hand, high cane models are especially recommended for steep terrain and with a higher gradient. Meanwhile, medium cane models are best suited for trekking on flat terrain and little accident.
