The North Face’s latest announcement has become hot news with the nationwide development of breathable knit shoes that make use of the proprietary new waterproof and breathable material called Future Light.

 

The material athletes have been waiting for, what exactly is Future Light?

Future Light is a new material that has been much requested by The North Face Global Athletes such as mountain climbers and skiers who demand high performance and waterproof items.

Microscopic gaps that are smaller than water molecules are formed by blowing polyurethane fibres in micro units which then forms a sheet that simultaneously achieves the opposite functions of both waterproofing and breathability.

In the fall of 2019 clothing items such as jackets using this new fabric were released worldwide and this time, shoes featuring the Future Light fabric will be released in Japan for the first time.

 

First use of Future Light in trekking shoes.

The Verto S3K FuturLight is a trekking shoe for vertical running that is appropriate for spring, summer and Autumn seasons based upon feedback from an international mountain guide. By making use of the Future Light fabric the stuffiness that is often associated with climbing up hill is reduced.
