If you need work shoes to protect your feet from water splashes, then I recommend a pair of waterproof safety shoes.
In this article I will answer the most frequently asked questions about Waterproof shoes, to help you find the perfect product for you needs!
Normally the waterproof safety shoes are equipped with sealing seams (to prevent water from entering the footwear) and also with a waterproof membrane, which replaces the inner lining. This membrane doesnt’ let water reach the feet, because it has micropores that are too small for water drops but big enough to let air through.
The big difference between the waterproof safety shoes and the normal water repellent shoes is that due to the presence of the waterproofing membrane the water, after a while, could go through the leather and or the seams, but it will be stopped by the membrane.
Of course there are differences between the membranes, there are high quality and performances membranes and economic ones, the difference between them is the resistance to wear and the breathability.
