We’re very happy to announce that we started selling two pairs of trainers developed for vegan inspiration, long distance endurance runner and multiple world record holder Fiona Oakes. We have the black and the black edition available.
You may have seen these trainers in the must see documentary about her life Running For Good (from the makers of Cowspiracy and What The Health).
They have been built and tested take the most extreme running environments experienced by Fiona from rugged trail running to the Sahara Desert to the North Pole.
The Vibram rubber injection outsoles provide super grippy traction and durability. The ballistic welded uppers created with Lyliane 3DMX advanced abrasion resistant materials can take the punishment of trail running.
WVSport models are designed and produced in the foothills of the Dolomite Hills, Italy.
Each model is created using CAD design technology that simulates the different phases of the walking experience.
Advanced components and construction methods are used to create the models like the use of Vibram soles and a patented Support System which means the fit is always comfortable and secure.
Development samples are lab tested for days for their abrasion resistance, durability and water resistance. New models can take months sometimes years to develop.
The factory features one of the largest photovoltaic plants in Italy which means that 70% of the power used to produce WVSport footwear is from solar.
As well as working under EU employment, discrimination and health & safety law the factory has their own Charter of Human Responsibilities (or Code of Ethics) which helps ensure the company is committed to respecting the rights, work and dignity of its employees.
For sourcing the materials to create each model we work with the factory using a traceability system that enables us to trace back every step in the production process so we always know what has been used and where it has come from.
10% of proceeds support Fiona’s Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary.
And now you can also buy Fiona’s book “Running For Good: The Fiona Oakes Story” here.
