The feature of hiking boots
Water resistance is the primary function of modern hiking shoes. Many professional backpackers choose to buy hiking shoes because of this feature, which is unmatched by sports shoes or ordinary traveling shoes. Most tourists pay more attention to the comfort of shoes, but pay less attention to the waterproof and breathability of shoes. According to professional tests, the time for a pair of wet feet to dissipate heat (in winter) is about 23 times that of dry feet, and outdoors, a pair of wet feet is prone to frostbite or other injuries. A pair of wet shoes is also heavy, which adds to the burden of walking. The traditional process is to achieve the waterproof effect through oil-impregnated leather, but this seriously affects the breathability of the shoes and also affects the appearance of the shoes. Later, there was a water repellent sprayed on the shoes. When the water drops on the surface of the shoes, it will slide off like water drops, but if the water is immersed for too long or the surface is under pressure, the water will still infiltrate, so it is not waterproof.
