The North Face & GORE-TEX Partner On 6 Sleek Weatherproof Laceless Sneakers

Jan 14, 2020

Category: Gear

Following a year of cutting-edge collaborations with a handful of the industry’s most prolific companies, The North Face is kicking off 2020 with yet another pattern of bombastic partnerships. Its latest project — the Velocity Knit footwear capsule — is one such example, calling upon GORE-TEX’s revered, ruggedized properties to create a series of contemporary sneaker silhouettes.

The North Face x GORE-TEX Velocity Knit capsule boasts two recognizable shoe styles — a low top, and high top — embued with all-weather textiles, breathable fabrics, and GORE-TEX’s proprietary “Invisible Fit” technology. Aside from their orientation, the silhouettes don’t deviate too far from one another, with both calling upon form-fitting elasticity, ribbed collars, and subtle knit textures to provide wearers with a technical sneaker primed for the urban environment. The company’s lauded waterproofing characteristics are omnipresent, helping the shoe’s sleek exterior, standard heel pull, and Vibram XS Trek midsole perform to their highest ability. If you’re looking to acquire a pair of the season’s most capable all-weather shoes, head to Goldwin’s website, where they’re retailing for $180+.
