Vibram and Slam Jam venture into the new frontiers of technology and design for the first time. Motivated by a common aspiration to discover the intersections between fashion, design and technology, these two entities have come together to create a revolutionary footwear innovation. The end result is a hybrid shoe meticulously crafted through a 5-step production process from sole to upper.
Vibram revolutionizes the traditional footwear manufacturing process by introducing thermoforming techniques on a 3D mould of a Vibram StratX rubber sheet, allowing the creation of the upper in a single step. This innovation disrupts the conventional approach to shoe construction. In addition, the sole used by Vibram incorporates the cutting-edge Vibram Litebase technology and the Vibram Megagrip compound, providing the ideal blend of grip and lightness.
