The SportMates® collection, sets a new standard in safety, breathability, lightness and design, perfect for professionals on the go.  A soft cushioned EVA midsole provides a high level impact absorption. This, in combination with a Latex foam footbed, breathable mesh and lightweight uppers, creates an optimal climate inside the shoe for day long comfort. A non-stitched upper minimizes the possibility of breakage, by illuminating sensible stitching parts.
