It looks like you have engineered change. We’re curious! Could you please share with us what’s so unique in terms of design?
We know people like accepting challenges and they do it every day. In our opinion challenge is a mindset. It knows no seasons. That is why we have put the knowledge from our winning winter sport line for champions into our outdoor collection for everyone to use. Because winning is an everyday activity. And this mindset is included also in our design. It starts with the winning red colour and continuous with small red details on all our shoes.
