Breathable, waterproof and light weight safety shoes


I’ve been looking on the market for a long time, but I can’t find a shoe that is windproof, waterproof and breathable… and also lightweight. Can you help me? Do you have any specific brands and models to suggest?

Thanks and best regards,


The expert's advice

Hi Denny,

To be completely waterproof, work shoes must have a membrane, ideally Goretex, but there are other membranes like Sympatex and others.

Goretex lined safety shoes have also some certified breathability.

To be the lightest you should check the outsole, PU (polyurethane) outsole is the lightest, rubber is the heaviest.

According to me the Wolverine Safety Shoes are the most breathable and at the same time protect your foot from water and wind.

Also, try reading this article, you fill find some additional indications.

Always at your disposal!
