We’ve all experienced it at some time or another, whether it be after a long day at work or after a taxing workout at the gym. You relieve your hot, sweaty feet from stuffy, closed shoes and wish for a quick solution to lessen the redness and soothe the itchy, burning sensation that follows. Imagine never having to feel this discomfort again and having the complete confidence to take off your shoes in public to reveal feet that are dry, healthy and happy.
‘Respira‘ means ‘breathe‘ in Italian and it is also a word that is synonymous with the Geox brand. As manufacturers of breathable footwear that fuses science and style, Geox promises to keep your feet dry and comfortable all year through, as well as warm and protected from the outside elements during the winter months.
Ongoing research and patented innovations are continuously implemented in the Geox range of casual, dressy and sports shoes for men and women:
Their revolutionary rubber soles were introduced over 50 years ago and while they were completely waterproof, they had a crucial flaw. The rubber soles were not breathable and considering that the many sweat glands in the soles of the feet excrete alot of moisture that could lead to skin infections, this was a problem that had to be solved by perforating the rubber soles and adding a microporous membrane that allows perspiration to escape while still preventing water from seeping into the shoes from the outside.
Technological advances aside, Geox does not fall short on aesthetics either. Their shoes are simple, yet classic and are made for everyday use. Their ‘Keira‘ pumps, ankle and knee-high boots are my favourites… The platform makes it trendy, while the high heel gives it elegance. Just as amazing are their winter boots in a range of styles.
