Alternative membranes completely free of PTFE and PFC, and made up of a completely safe copolymer made in polyester and polyether, certified pursuant to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and bluesign® approved.
Moreover, they use a 100% recycled Sympatex lining on which the membrane is laminated. And for the first time, all shoes underwent a DWR treatment, specifically developed by Sympatex in collaboration with Rudolf, to eliminate the presence of fluorocarbon.

“With the SS18 Collection, we have taken a big step toward becoming the most sustainable provider of functional outdoor shoes “, Oliver Korden, Head of the Footwear Division at VAUDE, underscores.
