The Hi-tech footwear skin product responds to the need for comfortable footwear for middle-aged women. The benefit of the product lies in the functional and aesthetic solution of high footwear. The upper reacts flexibly to swelling of the legs and has a long-term reversible deformability (patent granted). The functionality of the footwear is supported by an innovative sole construction, in which a vapor-permeable membrane is incorporated (patent granted). Project is developed in partnership with the company BAŤA, a.s.
