Directa Plus has stated that its graphene technology is being used in a newly-launched high-tech range of trail shoes.
Directa Plus said a specially developed graphene membrane is integrated into the lining of the norda 001 G+ Spike high-performance trail shoes, which are now available for consumer purchase.
Directa Plus has created the G+ membrane that is integrated into the Dyneema one-piece woven upper lining in the toe box of the shoes. This is said to provide the runner with additional comfort due to the thermal conductivity and abrasion resistance of the graphene G+ membrane while adding almost zero additional weight, according to Directa Plus.
The norda 001 G+ trail shoes will be showcased at the upcoming ISPO Munich trade fair, the world's largest sports trade show, in January 2022.
“The inclusion of our G+ membrane in high-performance running shoes takes us into an important new market,” said Giulio Cesareo, the founder and chief executive officer of Directa Plus.
