Sympatex seamless Climate Technology is a new laminate for footwear

Functional textile specialist Sympatex Technologies has expanded its Climate Technology footwear laminate to include 'knitted legs' for the first time. 

The seamless, 100% waterproof and windproof technology, will be on show at the International Leather Fair in Milan this week. It consists of a lightweight, hard-wearing hydrophobic knitted material, which is bonded to a breathable, waterproof Sympatex membrane. The seamless leg is taped with just one seam to the heel.

A range of colours and knitting patterns are available, and a material mix of a 100% recyclable 'guaranteed green' Sympatex membrane and hydrophobic, knitted upper allows year-round use.

Together with its long-time Italian distribution partner Pidigi SpA, Sympatex will present high-performance technologies as well as the latest laminate developments in footwear at the Milan show.
