What makes GEOX rubber outsoles different from the traditional outsole?
The traditional rubber outsole causes condensation on the sole of the foot, creating
a plastic-bag effect around it. Perspiration lingers in traditional shoes; this
can lead to undesirable foot odor and other related problems. GEOX rubber outsoles
contain a special microporous membrane that is both breathable and waterproof: it
absorbs and expels sweat without letting water in. Feet are kept dry and at the
How does the GEOX technology work?
A series of holes are made in the rubber outsole, positioned in correspondence to
the highest concentration of sweat glands on the sole of the foot. The perforated
rubber sole contains a special microporous membrane that absorbs and expels sweat
without letting water in. The process is made possible because the membrane’s micropores
are larger than water vapor molecules, but smaller than water droplets, keeping
water out and feet dry. Sweat, in the form of vapor, can pass through the membrane
and out through the perforated sole. The gradual elimination of humidity from the
inside of the shoe creates the ideal microclimate for healthy feet; no more bad
odors! Your feet will stay warm and dry in winter and cool and dry in the summer
Can water get into my shoes through the perforated outsole?
The membrane’s micropores are smaller than the water drops, which therefore can’t
pass through the membrane.
The GEOX membrane is made from an extremely porous material, with more than one
billion micropores per cm2: Each one of these micropores is 20,000 times smaller
than a drop of water, so water molecules are too large to get inside the shoe. However,
the micropores are also 700 times bigger than molecules of sweat vapor, so sweat
can easily pass through the membrane and out of the perforated sole.
GEOX guarantees the impermeability of the perforated sole but not of the entire
What does GEOX mean?
Combining "Geo" – the Greek word for Earth, on which everybody stands and
walks – with the letter "X" – a symbol for technology – the Geox
name highlights the DNA of a company founded on revolutionary ideas and on research
and applied technology to make them come true.

Does GEOX repair or resole shoes?

Please make sure that the breathable part of the sole is not tampered with. In this

How can I clean my shoes?
Please do not machine-wash or dry your GEOX shoes, as this can damage them.
Do not clean perforations with sharp objects.
As with all other shoes, GEOX should be stored in a dry, well-aired place.
For regular sneakers, we recommend that you hand wash the shoes in warm water with
a soft cloth. Please allow them to air dry naturally after washing, as the heat
from the dryer can also damage them.
For smooth leather, the shoes will need cleaning and care with shoe creams or polishes.
Select a neutral shade or a color nearest to the color of the shoes. Remove all
dust with a damp cloth. Never polish wet shoes.
For suede and nubuck, clean shoes while they are dry. Brush with a dry rubber sponge
or soft brush to eliminate any clinging dirt. Regular use of a soft brush will keep
the nap of the suede free from dust. Do not allow suede shoes to become wet or damp.
