The Vibram© sole utilized for this project is style number 2345.

Today, the Vibram® brand is recognized worldwide as the leader in high performance soling products for outdoor, dress casual, and service footwear.

Vibram® soles since 1962 have been on the shoes of K2 conquerors and still now the interest for the competitive ascent and researching the Himalayas and on Karakorum is very much alive. Vibram® often takes part in the expedition organized by the CNR (Italian National Research Council) to reach what many define as "the roof of the world": Everest. On this mountain, at the altitude of 16,568 feet, is the laboratory "Pyramid Observatory". This facility was created for the purpose of developing high-altitude scientific and technological activities for testing products and executing medical and physiological research. Vibram® had detailed studies done on its new products at the Pyramid. By relying on the great experience of the mountain-climbers and technicians of world renown laboratories, Vibram® conducted tests whose results are considered absolute, the utmost safety guarantee for mountain- climbers throughout the world.

Vibram® soles have gone on to become a legend throughout the world. Yet, the search for better soling products has never stopped. Vibram® soles are now found, not only on boots, but on a whole range of fine casual, service and dress footwear. Look for the distinctive Vibram® octagon with the Vibram® name inside; it's the symbol of excellence.
