Wellco picks GORE-TEX fabrics for protection footwear

Aug '10
Wellco Enterprises has specified GORE-TEX footwear fabric to provide waterproof, breathable protection in its new Smith & Wesson Guardian GTX series of footwear for law enforcement professionals. GORE-TEX footwear fabric keeps feet drier and more comfortable by preventing exposure to rain and inclement weather while allowing moisture vapor (perspiration) to escape.

Wellco's Smith & Wesson Guardian GTX series of footwear are among the lightest-weight high-performance shoes and boots on the market today, combining comfort with excellent traction and protection against the harsh elements that patrol and tactical officers encounter on the job.

According to Kerry Ferguson, Director of Marketing at Wellco and Smith & Wesson Footwear, this new Guardian line of footwear was designed to meet all the needs of law enforcement professionals — protection, agility, durability, and comfort. “We chose GORE-TEX footwear fabric as the waterproof barrier because of its reputation for delivering long-lasting breathability and protection.”

Ferguson added, “While working with Gore during the design and construction of these new boots, we found that their commitment to delivering high-quality products is backed by years of expertise in barrier design and some of the most rigorous performance testing available in the industry today.”
