Reality Check

  • Claim:

    THE WORLD'S FIRST MERINO WOOL SPORT SHOE

  • Reality:

    "World's first" is always a big claim in any category. With a very limited competitor base, Wool Cross X by Giesswein separates itself from any competitor by incorporating true versatility and durability into the design.

  • Claim:

    "...world’s first high-performance sport shoe with a 100% Merino wool lining. "

  • Reality:

    Previous releases by Giesswein have a tremendously high track record of comfort and quality. Pairing the quality of Giesswein with merino wool and sport durability and design allows for such a claim.

  • Claim:

    No Sweat

  • Reality:

    A tricky claim since there are many variables in the world of foot perspiration. Even with temperature regulation and breathable material, there will be sweat.

  • Claim:

    Made with sustainable fabric

  • Reality:

    With the ability to recycle wool and the healthy treatment of animals, these shoes are made with sustainable fabric and set a standard for shoe manufacturers. Companies like Patagonia utilize recycled wool in their final products.

Bottom Line

With an impeccable track record, Giesswein introduces a merino wool sport shoe by the name of Wool Cross X that is primed for a successful run. Not too many uncertainties here except for a potential delay as the campaign will have a large amount of funds raised.
