For over 100 years, innovation and technology have been the pillars of Michelin®. Soles by MICHELIN® develops unique soles that meet the specific needs of each of its customers. The project, born in 2014, transfers the know-how of the “ground contact” of tires to footwear, creating high-performance soles. “Unite soul with sole“, make the soul vibrate through the sole and rekindle the passions of the wearer: this is the goal of every exclusive Michelin® signed sole.
Passion, research and innovation are the principles that unite Parlanti Roma and soles by MICHELIN®. It is thanks to the sharing of these values that the partnership was born in a natural way. Parlanti Roma in equitation is a trendsetter. The collaboration of the Roman and French team has generated unique soles for adult and junior riding, which will leave their mark on a wide range of models. These include KK-Boots, K-Komfy, KK-Boots Kids, from the “Parlanti Passion” line, which will be presented at the Spoga fair. Each boot is a unique piece for the sole design, designed with extreme attention to detail by the French company, both for the meticulous craftsmanship of the Roman brand.
