All Technologies (Summer)

Insulation

  • GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort

    With breathable, wicking materials, the Performance Comfort technology is designed to maximize end-use comfort in a wide range of conditions and outdoor activities. The Performance Comfort technology is mainly found in Alfa's Mountain, Hiking and Hunting boots.

  • GORE-TEX® Insulated

    Designed to maximize end-use comfort in cold conditions and during outdoor activities in the winter, the Insulated Comfort technology guards your feet when the temperature drops. Including additional insulation and engineered to keep snow and water from penetrating the shoe, it offers a comfortable environment for the foot in cold weather. The Insulated Comfort technology is found in Alfa's winter boots.

  • GORE-TEX® Surround

    The unique Surround™ technology combines 100 % waterproofness and breathability in a very innovative way, and is used on our low and mid A/P/S hiking shoes. By including a breathable system with air ducts underneath the foot, it is designed to maximize end-use comfort in moderate to warm conditions and during high activity levels. 

    Please note that the open structure allows water to penetrate through the air ducts on the side, in example if you step in water or a swamp. Many will experience this as a bit unusual / strange feeling, when your feet are cooled by the water. This does not impact the shoes' ability to keep your feet dry - the waterproof GORE-TEX® inner sock ensure it. The Surround™ technology can even be used to cool your feet on purpose on a hot summer without getting wet.


  • GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort

    With highly breathable, hydrophobic materials, the Extended Comfort technology keeps water from penetrating the shoe while sweat evaporates from the inside. It is suitable for moderate to warm conditions and during higher activity levels. 100 % waterproof and highly breathable, it offers a dry and comfortable environment in higher temperatures and activity levels. The Extended Comfort technology is mainly to be found in a selection of Alfa's Hiking Low and Mid boots.
