Breathable, waterproof and light weight safety shoes


Which shoe (windproof and waterproof, breathable) is by far the lightest?

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

Try reading this article, for me the Wolverine are the most breathable and at the same time protect your foot from water and wind

Goretex safety shoes

Always at your disposal

My best regards
