Diadora Wins BSIF Product Innovation Award

Award given for Glove Tech's Net Breathing System

The illustrious British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) named Glove Tech, a superior shoe part of the 2018 Diadora Utility collection, “Product Innovation of the Year 2018” at an award ceremony held in Birmingham, England, on April 11, 2018.

A panel of judges consisting of key industry figures reduced the original 150-plus candidates to a shortlist of 75 divided into nine different categories, assigning the best innovation award in the work health and safety one to Diadora Utility.

The brand excelled in this category because “The jury […][ recognized its value in terms of health and safety thanks to a breathing system unique in the world of work footwear.”

Glove, an iconic Utility shoe synonymous with protection, quality and design — a bestseller for more than ten years — was in fact recently relaunched in an innovative version part of the new “Glove Tech” line. Thanks to Net Breathing System™ technology, the new model presents a further series of benefits that contribute to making it the most breathable shoe currently on the market.

The system pivots on the inclusion in the midsole of a breathable membrane that enables the release of moisture while preventing air and water from entering from the outside. This produces an ideal microclimate within the shoe, so keeping the foot dry and fit. Adding to the excellence of the product is the use of high-quality ultra waterproof/breathable Perwanger leather.
