Pluviam is a new concept of footwear, made up of fabrics that not only seek users' comfort, but also their protection on the road. In cold seasons, rain, fog and other meteorological conditions cause a visibility reduction over medium and long distances. This is a real danger for all people who share the road with vehicles. Even more when there are not even raised sidewalks. In this way, Pluviam tries to be a protection system for the user, taking advantage of fluorescent, waterproof and high quality fabrics to provide comfort and safety. With Pluviam, You will stay safe, dry and visible.

Bio
My name is Javier Vázquez and I'm an Industrial Design Engineer recent graduate.
For as long as I can remember, I've had an insatiable need to create, learn and ask myself for what surrounds me. I try to understand, analyze and improve everything I discover.
Currently, I am still studying a double master's degree MBA & Project Management, to go deeper into Design Leadership and Product Management.
