Since 1927 Kapriol has been making the combination of innovation and experience its strong point. Values carried on with determination and effectiveness also by the fifth generation Morganti (Francesca, Alessandro and Stefano) - now leading the company together with the seniors Franco and Alberto:

It is exactly this thought about innovation that has led us to a profound reinterpretation of the corporate image (a new and modern logo that will characterise all collections in a recognisable way) and to the collaboration with Michelin Soles - says Alessandro Morganti, Kapriol Product Development. The goal is to develop quality work shoes, with an attractive design and capable of high performance. Starting from these premises, Michelin has been the most obvious choice.

Kapriol has equipped three footwear collections with a Micheln sole:

  • K-SILVERSTONE
  • K-LE MANS
  • K-ESTORIL

A special non-slip tread pattern allows easier water evacuation offering greater flexibility. A must have for construction workers and professionals, thanks to its exceptional grip, durability and adaptability to all types of terrain. The EVA midsole completes the characteristics of these “work sneakers” which, despite being inspired by the world of running and training, maintain the performance required for a technical safety shoe.

Filippo Sartor, Partnership Development Manager at JVI for MICHELIN Technical Soles underlines:

Together we have succeeded in transforming those that initially seemed to be problems in new opportunities, giving life to a shoe with an innovative and captivating design, with high-end performance characteristics, able to bring tangible benefits to the worker.
