What Is Gore-Tex® ?

Hey I am Andre and I work with W. L. Gore associates and I am here to talk about Gore-Tex®. So what makes Gore-Tex® different? What is Gore-Tex®? Who really knows? But I can tell you a few things. Is it a spray? Is it a treatment? Is it something you do to the leather? It’s none of those things. What Gore-Tex® is, it’s a promise to the consumer and a technology behind that promise. Gore-Tex® is really unique because we are the only component manufacturer in the entire world that guarantees the protection and comfort of a shoe to a consumer. That’s like the meatballs guaranteeing the deliciousness of the spaghetti at the end of the day. Crazy stuff. It all starts with this. We make this product here, expanded polytetrafluorethylene. Say that three times fast if you can, expanded polytetrafluorethylene. It has 9 billion pores per inch, it’s chemically inert, thermally stable and it makes an amazing thing once you bond it with fabric materials to make a Gore-Tex® fabric. That fabric is a three layer fabric that’s gets made into this by our partners and this is the Gore-Tex® Bootie. And what it does is it gets inserted inside of a shoe. It’s waterproof and breathable and this is the thing that become the heart of any Gore-Tex® shoe. Now even though we know that the fabric is breathable and waterproof, we also know that if we built things around the fabric bootie, that can impede the waterproofness, it can impede the breathability and it can make it a really miserable experience for the consumers. So we work with our partners to make sure that everything that goes on top of this Gore-Tex® Bootie is the right thing. Not too much glue, not too much material to impede breathability or increase heat and enough of the things on there that are waterproof.

How A Gore-Tex® Product Is Tested

Click HERE to view a video on what Gore-Tex® is!



When we work with our partners we do two things. We always test every single design that has the Gore-Tex badge on it for comfort and for waterproofness. The first set of test we do with our partners is that we take this shoe, once it's built with a Gore-Tex bootie, and we submerge it underwater and we flex it in a patented test called the Gore-Tex Wet Flexor Test. We flex it up to 300,000 times. The next test that we do with our is to test that the comfort of the shoes is right, and how we do that is we take a synthetic foot with a special test and we put it inside the shoe. And we actually emit moisture vapor, just like your foot would if it's sweating. Every single bootie and every single factory where this is made, all over the world, is tested, filled with air and submerged underwater to make sure that it is waterproof before it ever goes into the shoe. Once it's in there, we take shoes off the line and we fill them up with water again, or we put them in a centrifuge and spin them around to make sure that no teeny, tiny pinholes have gotten into this product while it's being manufactured. We don't just make a product, we make a promise. And that promise is that if the consumer isn't completely satisfied with the waterproofness, breathability and comfort, Gore will repair, replace or refund the purchase price of the product.

How Orthaheel Can Help You!

Hi my name is Philip Vasyli, I'm an Australian Podiatrist and I've been in practice for over 25 years. I'm the inventor of the Orthaheel product range and I designed these products to treat excess pronation. Now excess pronation has been commonly linked to aches and pains like heel pain, knee pain and even back pain. So, if you're suffering from any of these conditions, I encourage you to give these products a try. Thank you. You can see I've drawn a line down the front of Lauren's leg or tibia as we call it. Right through the ankle, through the foot to the second toe, second metatarsal joint. I've also drawn a dot on Lauren's knee, so you can see the rotation of the knee and have the how the foot effects it. Now if you look at Lauren, she's standing on hard flat ground, which commonly causes excess pronation rolling over the foot, which is this sort of curve in here. Now if you have the foot, the way I would like it, in this sort of curve, if she stood on soft natural surface like ground, support her foot, you can see how the line is much more straightened and the knee now lines up with the ankle right through the second toe. You let her foot relax, you can see how it rolls in and you get this excess pronation, which commonly causes aches and pains like heel pain, tired aching legs, knee pain and even back pain. We turn the foot to the side, you see how the arch is also very collapsed. Again, if I correct the foot, watch the arch, you'd see a great improvement of the height of the arch. And this is how we'd like to keep her foot, but unfortunately with standing on hard that ground, this allows the foot to roll in, which in turn collapses the arch. Now if you get Lauren to stand on the Orthaheel product, you'll see from the front view, a very nice correction of the alignment, straight from the second toe, through the ankle right up through to the knee. If you look at the side profile, you'll see the heel is nicely cupped, which holds the heel in alignment and the arch is contoured right up through the mid foot, stabilizing the whole heel, mid foot and fore foot. Now if you take that off again, look at the arch, you'll see how it collapses and again many people wear flat sandals, like this. If Lauren puts this on you'll see, that provides no support, no correction and again if you look from the front, the same scenario of the excess pronation. Take the product off, put Orthaheel product again and look at the great improvement of the alignment. Nice alignment from the mid foot, arch, right up through the leg and knee and again, looking at the arch, the heel contour is beautiful and so is the arch contour right, through the whole foot.

How To Sharpen Your Knives With The Chef's Choice 1520

Clay: Hi, my name is Clay and today I'm going to show you how to sharpen a knife using the Chef's Choice 1520 Angle Select sharpener. OK, for today's demonstration, we've got the Chef's Choice 1520 AngleSelect knife sharpener and we have a seven inch chef's knife. OK. This is the front view of the knife sharpener. This particular knife sharpener can sharpen an Asian style knife, or a Euro-American style knife. And then it strokes it or strops it to an extreme sharpness. That's the stroking stage, and this is the sharpening stage. The Asian style knives typically have a 15 degree edge to them, such as this one. This is the santoku knife. The blade edge is 15 degrees whereas a typical European or American knife will have a 20 degree edge. If you want, you can convert a European American style knife by an Asian style knife by using Stage 1, instead of Stage 2. So, in this demonstration I'll be using the Asian, Stage 1. This particular knife sharpener is great for all types of knives. You can use kitchen knives. You can even use scissors that detach, pocket knives, sporting knives, hunting knives. It's a versatile sharpener that requires virtually no maintenance. OK, during Stage 1, the honing stage, we pull the knife through about 10 times for each pair. So, start with the left side, and then the right side. Pull it through 10 times, about 5 seconds long, depending on the length of the knife blade. As you do this, check from time to time for a burr on the edge of the knife. If you feel a burr, then it's time to move on to the stropping stage, that would be Stage 3. The guides make it very convenient to pull the knife through because you don't have to worry about the angle or how you're holding the knife, just simply pull it through slowly and the knife sharpener will do all the work for you. Stage 3, this is the stropping and polishing stage. Make 4 pairs of pulls for about 5 seconds each, just like you did in Stage 1. Then 4 pairs of pulls quickly, about 2 seconds each side. As you can see, this sharp knife cuts through this tangerine with ease, and I don't have to worry about it slipping off the skin and onto my finger. So now you can see how easy it is to keep your knives sharp in the comfort of your own home. A sharp knife is a pleasure to use and it reduces the risk of injury. Happy slicing.

How To Find Slip Resistant Shoes For Your Infant

how's it going? My names Najum and I am here to show you how to find slip resistent shoes for your infant on Now in order to complete this how to all you will need is a computer with internet access. Now let's get started. First things first let's pull up When you have the home page pulled up. Go on ahead and click into the search field and type in "infant shoes" and perform a search. When you've got your search results, on the left side you should have a series of options to further narrow your search down. Go on ahead and narrow it down by your childs gender and size group. Once you've got your search further narrowed down, go on ahead and select the product you are interested in. Once you have selected the product, you should be on the product page. In the product page, go ahead and click the button that says "View Larger Image & Additional Views". Once you click this button it will create a pop up window, which is what we call the "multiview". In the multiview, you can select a variety of different angles and view closeups of this product. Go on ahead and select the icon for the outsole. This way we can take a look at the outsole in full detail. The particular shoe that I have selected has a rubber outsole, so I know these should provide some form of slip resistance. But remember, they do not need to be rubber to provide slip resistance. Any fabric that interrupts a smooth surface can provide your child with some form of slip resistance. Even though they have a rubber sole, these shoes remain soft and flexible, but provide a bit more slip resistance. Now that we have visually inspected the shoe, let's take a look at the written and video descriptions for further information on if these shoes are slip resistant. Another good sign of slip resistance is to see if the shoe has received a Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). The APMA tests for a variety of characteristics such as safety, comfort, quality, and health benefits! A few brands we have available on Zappos that have been approved by the APMA are Robeez, Pediped, and See Kai Run Kids!
