Along with being durably waterproof, the footwear is resistant to other commonly occurring chemicals that wearers might be exposed to on duty.
With one of the most breathable footwear laminates in Gore’s portfolio, feet stay comfortable even in the warmest conditions and during high intensity activities.
Unrivalled in terms of wear comfort. The optimised construction reduces the overall weight of the footwear.

GORE-TEX Tactical Footwear provides effective climate comfort for police officers in duty footwear, thanks to its highly breathable GORE-TEX laminate. This level of extreme breathability provides the opportunity to have one pair of boots that are suitable even during high intensity activity and warm environments. The footwear offers a new class of climate comfort for police in their daily duties.
Daily duty police officers require footwear for different levels of activity outdoors and indoors: from the agility and waterproofness needed on duty outside on the street, to the comfort and breathability needed when inside the patrol car. GORE-TEX Tactical Footwear has been tested to successfully meet these requirements.
The lightweight footwear is designed around the thin 3-Layer GORE-TEX laminate that comes without insulation. Being highly breathable the laminate is known for outstanding heat loss. It forms a reliable barrier against water and commonly occurring chemicals penetrating from the outside.
The laminate combines selected upper and lining materials to enable daily duty footwear that meets the needs of a modern police force: exceptionally lightweight, athletic, durably waterproof and extremely breathable.
Ideal for police, guard and patrol duties, indoors and outdoors, in warm weather.
