UNIWORK offers a preview of the PERFORMANCE collection

Last October, Uniwork submitted to market scrutiny some prototypes of its new Performance line developed in partnership with Michelin, which will soon be industrialised and then marketed. A preview that allowed us to appreciate a top-of-the-range collection destined to satisfy the most demanding palates. Two lines: Urban and Hiking.

The Urban range is inspired by Michelin’s technical expertise with road tyres and includes a range of models named after the most important Formula One racing circuits: Melbourne, Imola, Monte Carlo, Silverstone, etc. The uppers are made of nylon plus crust or nubuck plus suede, the soles boast a soft PU midsole and a stylish Michelin HRO nitrile rubber tread for durability, grip and flexibility. The linings are highly breathable and the non-metallic laminae ‘anti-puncture zero’.

The Hiking line, on the other hand, takes its cue from the off-road world and proposes a more aggressive and sculpted tread inspired by the rally world, so much so that the models take their names from the most famous cars in these competitions such as Stratos, Delta, Impreza, etc. Added to the features of the previous line is the composite toe cap with a resistance of up to 200 J for robust, non-slip, hydrocarbon-resistant outdoor footwear.

Both lines will be EN ISO 20345 – 20347:2022 compliant and also available with ESD requirements.
