Hanwag Presskit: Fall/Winter 2019/2020
A dual approach to winter weather protection.

Date: 2019-02-01

With their distinctive colourways, the Vierkirchen shoemaker’s Active Winter category boots set themselves apart from the rest of the collection. In addition, all Active Winter models have an Eco-Shell Footwear membrane. In addition to their waterproof and breathable moisture vapour transmission, Hanwag’s proprietary weather protection membrane is eco-friendly. Made of polyurethane, the membrane is manufactured without using PTFE and its DWR finish is also 100% PFC-free. Moreover, all the Active Winter styles, namely the PULJA LADY ES, SAISA HIGH LADY ES, SAISA MID LADY ES, ANROS ES and ANVOK ES feature a warm lining made of 100% recycled polyester and high-quality leather uppers from European tanneries. All these models are produced in Europe. Hanwag Active Winter boots are made with a cemented construction and can be easily resoled if required – for an even longer service life.

How does the Eco-Shell footwear membrane work?

The Eco-Shell Footwear membrane is based on a three-layer laminate. Unlike, for example GORE-TEX, it is non-porous. Instead, it’s works with chemical-physical molecule transport. The PU (polyurethane) membrane is hydrophilic, i.e. it attracts water, its molecular structure (A) is designed to absorb moisture inside the shoe (B) and transport it to the outside to evaporate (C). The moisture removal process is powered by the partial pressure gradient. This occurs as the foot and the whole body starts to generate warmth during increased activity and the skin responds by producing perspiration to cool it down. The process is accelerated as the heated air starts expand and require more volume and as moisture absorption increases with the rising temperature. As a result, the pressure inside the shoe is higher than pressure outside the shoe, so that the perspiration is forced out as moisture vapour molecules.
