A pioneer for over 20 years in providing efficient and effective solutions to workers around the world, Utility accepts the challenge of proposing a revolutionary safety shoe to the market that funnels maximum safety and performance into a little more than 300 grams.
By its side, we find Vibram, global leader in the outdoor sector, which in recent years has increasingly made headway in the fields of streetwear and fashion. The collaboration between the two arose from the shared desire to create a unique product in terms of performance and lightness – features typical of the sole with Vibram Litebase technology that is often used in the outdoor world – and which today is also mounted on Fly, in a European exclusive for Utility. Vibram Litebase is in fact an innovative solution designed to drastically reduce the weight of the tread (by around 30%) through the reduction of the sole thickness by 50%, while maintaining unaltered the layout and the shape of the dowels, so as to not impair the grip, traction, durability, and resistance to use.
Thanks to the important technologies used, like the carbon fibre toecap or Matryx multiple fibre technical fabric upper, which is extremely breathable, as well as the already mentioned Litebase sole, Fly positions itself among the most innovative Utility models of all time, representing a model without equal on the market not only for its lightness, but also because of its special technical features and versatility, which make it ideal for the handicraft, engineering, logistics, industrial, and mechanical industries. “Lightness is a primary need in the work and sports world, comments Enrico Moretti Polegato, President of Diadora. – Strong from our know-how in both sectors, we have created a work shoe that combines our technologies applied to sports with the excellence of Vibram in the outdoor world, without compromising on the high technical performance that has always characterised Utility”.
