It's Italian, it's waterproof, it's Geox. Yes, Italian. Italians love their shoes and are fabulous and talented shoemakers. Geox does not sound Italian? Geox's name comes from 'geo' and X. That's the Greek work for earth and the requisite letter representing technology.
Geox is high-tech. Their lab in Montebelluna continuously does research on human-generated heat-movement patterns to create shoes designed to keep feet warm, dry and amply ventilated at the same time.
