Antiviral Sole

The floor is the habitat of germs, bacteria’s and virus. And footwear is a vehicle of transmission. Wiping your shoes with a wipe when you get home is an option, but it creates waste and transfers germs that could otherwise remain on your shoe to your hands.

The solution?
You can adopt the habit of leave your shoes at the door or choose our shoes with the Antiviral Sole.

A sole with antiviral properties that prevents the spread of virus. The results showed antiviral activity reduce the presence of virus in 99%. This projected was developed in partnership with CeNTI – Centre for Nanotechnology and Smart Materials, and with the collaboration of INEB (Instituto Nacional de Engenharia Biomédica) and the 2CA-Braga (Centro Cliníco de Braga).
