Protection Meets Comfort and Design

ISPO Award Winner 2023: Naglev Veloce Outdoor Shoe

The Naglev Veloce combines comfort with technical prowess in an outdoor shoe. It offers an innovative blend of Kevlar protection and natural materials that creates lightness and great performance properties no matter what the terrain.

In the world of outdoor gear, innovation often lies at the intersection of technical prowess, user comfort, and unique design. Naglev offers a new take on innovation with the introduction of its new outdoor shoe, the Veloce. It seamlessly blends the technical excellence of protective materials like Kevlar with the comfort of natural components.

Kevlar Protected Midsole

At the heart of Veloce's innovation lies a unique fusion of Kevlar fabric and natural materials. Naglev uses Kevlar® by Dupont for its performance in terms of strength and durability. With it, a light high-tech armor for the foot was created, protecting it and ensuring its safety. Being surrounded by kevlar, the EVA midsole is protected from abrasion, its physical properties are extended, and the dynamic propulsion is increased. This not only protects the midsole from abrasion but also extends its physical properties, resulting in improved dynamic propulsion and lightness.

Offering protection and support on any kind of terrain

Exoskeleton from Organic Materials for Unmatched Support

Dynamic activities often place stress on the feet. The design of the Veloce not only ensures an extraordinary level of support but also distributes forces and tensions across the entire shoe. Its organic exoskeleton is meticulously crafted through seamless stitching to embrace the Kevlar fabric of the upper and the midsole. A sleek toe cap also provides additional protection when hiking or running in mountain terrain.

The Naglev Veloce offers enhanced stability, reduced fatigue, and the freedom to tackle rugged terrain with confidence. So overall, it gives outdoor enthusiasts great performance on various terrains. Sleek, minimalist design, shows the brand’s commitment to combine both form and function and make the shoe an eye-catcher, even in the urban outdoors.
