Spryidon + Laces review
Features, Company and Science
For more than 75 years Vibram has maintained its role of world leader in marketing and producing high-performance rubber soles, destined for outdoor, work, free time, fashion, mending and orthopedy markets. The unmistakable yellow octagon, that identifies the brand which is known all around the globe, is the symbol of a company which is synonym with quality, performance, safety, innovation and design. This is how Vitale Bramani, member of the Italian Alpine Club, had the great intuition of using the technique developed by Pirelli, the car-tyre manufacturer, also for shoes. As a matter of fact, applying rubber under his mountaineering boots, Bramani had the first sole made of vulcanized rubber, thus inventing the shoe sole which revolutionised the world of mountaineering.
This sport was practiced only by a small amount of people which wore rudimental wooden clogs at the beginning of last century. Then the so called “tricounis” were created, which were the first true mountaineering shoes provided with metallic cleats. On the one hand their use improved a lot the movements on ice, but they revealed themselves to be dangerous for rock climbing. At this point in history, in 1937 the “first Vibram evolution” took place: Vitale Bramani (Vi-Bram, name born by the acronym of its inventor) invented the “Carrarmato” (literally: "tank tread"), that is the first rubber sole realized specifically for mountaneering, which changed this sport dramatically. Thanks to this outstanding innovation, Vibram® built itself fame and reputation at international level with its great commitment to develope a range of highly performant products, suitable for various sports.
The Spyridon offers the same great minimalist trail running experience as the Spyridon providing the perfect balance of “foot feel” and protection on rugged terrain. With Vibram’s 3D Cocoon technology, the Spyridon has a multidirectional sole, which allows for impact protection from stones and debris with minimal weight. The Coconut Active Carbon upper breathes naturally using 34% post industrial coconut fiber. It is finished off with an adjustable hook-and-loop closure ensuring a secure fit and reflective applications for safety after dark. Machine Washable. Air Dry.
