GORE--TEX shoes self-testing method

The following information is what I learned from GORE, published by its official, and suitable for our general consumer reference application!

It should be noted that this method is for reference only and is not 100% accurate. The final test still needs to pass the professional inspection of the manufacturer.

GORE-TEX's inner socks are GORE-TEX, which is 75% of the height of the whole pair of shoes and 50% of the height of casual shoes. If the water depth exceeds this height, it will inevitably seep into the shoes. This is not a category of water leakage. By the same token, shoe tongues and shoelaces will seep through. This situation can be reduced or avoided by water-repelling the surface of the shoe. In the normal service life cycle. When feeling GORE-TEX shoes leaking, you can use the following self-test methods:
^ Use a soft brush to brush dirt and other dirt on the shoes, remove laces, and insert heavy paper towels and stones in the shoes. ^ Place water inside the shoes in a container. Note that the height of the water should not exceed the minimum Laces ^ test time is 8 hours ^ best to test the upper part of the shoes before the test to make water treatment to clearly distinguish whether it really leaks ^ if the test result is the upper part of the shoe is wet and the paper towel is not wet, which means The material on the upper part of the shoe is seepage. This does not belong to the category of water leakage as long as it is used as a water-repellent treatment. If the tissue is wet, check the toe area of ​​the shoe for damage. This may be due to the fact that the nail is too long but the film Damage caused leakage, if not then you need to go to the merchant who purchased the shoes or call the GORE service phone 800-820-1555 to inquire

Friends in doubt can go back and try it out!
