(EN)In some aspects, the disclosure relates to multilayer composite constructions including a waterproof/breathable membrane layer attached to another layer formed of a breathable material. In some examples, the disclosure relates to footwear comprising a sole and an upper attached to the sole and including an outer surface. The upper may comprise a first layer including a top surface defining at least a portion of the outer surface of the upper, and a second layer including a top surface directly attached to a bottom surface of first layer, wherein the second layer is substantially waterproof and breathable.
(FR)La présente invention se rapporte, selon certains aspects, à des constructions composites multicouches comprenant une couche de membrane imperméable/respirante fixée à une autre couche formée d'un matériau respirant. Selon certains exemples, la présente invention se rapporte à des chaussures comprenant une semelle et une partie supérieure fixée à la semelle et comprenant une surface externe. La partie supérieure peut comprendre une première couche comprenant une surface supérieure qui définit au moins une partie de la surface externe de la partie supérieure, et une seconde couche comprenant une surface supérieure fixée directement à une surface inférieure de la première couche, la seconde couche étant sensiblement imperméable et respirante.
