Stable Impact System
From the Diadora research labs comes the STABLE IMPACT SYSTEM CUSHIONING technology, providing outstanding cushioning and comfort, regardless of force exerted. The Stable Impact System is a cushioning system created by shaping the design of the sole in a special way. The purpose of cushioning is to absorb the energy generated by impact with the ground and to reduce the peak of the force returned on the muscles and bones of the wearer. The energy returned thanks to this technology is independent of the weight of the user, thus demonstrating that this system offers the perfect combination of cushioning, reactivity and comfort. Thanks to the combination of cushioning and reactivity, regardless of the size of the shoe and independent of the weight of the user. Thanks to the stable, uniform cushioning, comfort and stability of the shoes, they feel the same for all wearers.
Vibram Litebase is the innovative sole that reduces thickness and weight, while guaranteeing the same performance in terms of grip, stability and durability. In fact, while the thickness of the rubber sole is 50% less than a normal sole and the weight is reduced by up to 30%, stability, durability, grip and traction are still the same as always. In addition, the special Vibram HRO compound is contact heat-resistant and does not mark surfaces.
Carbon Fiber Layer
Multi-layered carbon fibre toecap that provides maximum safety and exceptional performance, without taking up too much space. Non-magnetic, non-thermal and ultra-light.
Net Breathing System by Geox
The Geox revolution came about after long-time research targeted at the creation of a special membrane: made of microporous materials, it is able to absorb sweat in its vapour state and expel it via the perforated sole. The waterproof breathable membrane allows feet to breathe while keeping water out. This system allows for a natural thermal regulation of the feet, facilitating the presence of the ideal microclimate inside the shoes, resulting in dry, healthier feet. Thermal regulation is guaranteed even in the hottest climates and during the most intense work tasks. And flexibility features ensure maximum comfort in every situation.
Net Breathing System by Geox - Airbox
Diadora Utility broadens its NET BREATHING SYSTEM range of products (licensed by GEOX), introducing its own proprietary technology. This exclusive line, developed within Diadora’s research laboratories, represents excellence in the field of innovation and design. These shoes leave the foot free to breathe, offering maximum comfort in any situation. The innovative lateral position of the ventilation holes in the new Airbox construction ensures unmatched breathability. The special GEOX Diadora membrane has now been further enhanced with the addition of holes along the sides, ensuring maximum breathability for the foot whilst remaining in perfect harmony with the protective elements that make up the shoe. Research has confirmed that this membrane - which features tiny holes or “micropores” that are smaller than a drop of water, but larger than a molecule of water vapour - prevents water from entering the shoe, while ensuring that the foot remains dry.
Cushioning, energy return and long-lasting performance. Born from the Diadora research, Mass Damper is the new frontier of safety in the workplace. Mass Damper is a revolutionary technology that guarantees total cushioning and energy return while offering maximum protection, versatility and top quality performances over time for the new generation of safety shoes. To feel more energised and less tired at the end of a long day. The low-density material of the sole ensures great resilience and compression set performances, for maximum comfort and a high energy return. The coating creates an external protection shell that increases the sole resistance to abrasion, tearing, hydrolysis, fuels and oil. In addition, it serves to provide stability during the energy release phase. The Mass Damper technology extends to cover the whole surface of the sole, distributing the body weight evenly and allowing the foot to comfortably roll.
Breathing System by Geox
The innovative and exclusive breathing systems developed by Geox Labs ensure maximum breathability and comfort. Based on the principle of heat transfer, hot air evaporates upwards. Thanks to the special Breathing System structure, sweat goes through the 3D Spacer, coming out of the breathing tape made of a special breathing and waterproof membrane that works in two ways – to expel humidity and to keep water from entering. Lab tests show that the Geox patent greatly increases the garment breathability level. Benefits are glaring: with the Geox system, clothes stay dry, perceived humidity drops, cold caused by excessive sweating and sudden cold drafts are cut down to zero.
Matryx is a multi-zone technical fabric made from aramid fiber and extra-tough polyamide developed by Chamatex®, a French company which is specialized in high performance technical fabrics. Matrix 2.0 is an exclusive patented fabric, specifically designed in close collaboration with Diadora in order to meet the needs of the workplace. With resistance to abrasion, lateral support and high flexibility, Matryx® 2.0 enables professionals to work without sacrificing on comfort.
From our experience with Airbox comes SOFTBOX, a polyurethane insert that offers greater cushioning and comfort. Thanks to the patented positioning of the polyurethane “core” and the anti-puncture insert, it guarantees cushioning with heel striking and encourages the natural roll of the foot.
D-Light is a new generation polyurethane compound that has been developed in collaboration with BASF; light and comfortable, it guarantees excellent cushioning and creates a comfortable, stable fit in all conditions and on all work surfaces.
