Water Vapor Permeability
Characteristic that allows moisture and air to permeate through the leather.
Often called ‘breathability’, this characteristic allows moisture and air to permeate through the leather.
This property is particularly important for shoes’ comfort; as the foot sweats it can produce large amounts of moisture that move through the leather to the outside, keeping the inside of the shoe drier and more comfortable, with a lower moisture level.
Plastic and synthetic shoes do not have this capability and will not transpirate, making your foot sweat and feel wet all the time.
