Base Protection innovative technologies and systems

The Technologies

H2st0p:
A heat-sealed membrane that ensures complete waterproofing even in the constant presence of water. The upper seams prevent any accumulation of water between the upper and the lining, avoiding any inrease weight of the shoe also. This too allows for a more comfortable foot temperature. Features in Base Be-Dry B0895, Base Be-Powerful B0898 and Base Be-Rock.

i-daptive®:
A clever system that Base Protection are hugely proud of. The revolutionary technology was created by Base specifically for the new Kaptiv® shoe line. i-daptive® adapts to the foot to give you an incredible feeling of dynamic comfort. Available in: Base K-Step Safety Trainers.

The i-daptive® system works on several levels:

- Provides stability to the foot and, in case of small lateral oscillations, corrects the axis of the foot, bringing it back to the optimal position.
- Facilitates walking by giving fluidity to the heel-toe transition, through a modular process called "variable geometry"
- Adapts to the rough, uneven surface of the ground, behaving like an active suspension that cushions and reduces the repercussions on the stability of the foot.
- Anti-fatigue, reduces the risk of trauma and sprains in bad terrain through absorption, dissapation, stability and return of energy.

Dry'n Air:
A technology, patented by Base, which guarantees the air circulation inside the shoe. Dry'n Air PLUS is a built-in air flow system with ballistic textile puncture-resistant, which uses the "Venturi effect" for the air circulation below the foot. An exclusive technology, patented by Base Protection, which allows to reduce the outsole's hard and compact thickness, up to values never obtained before. The results in more elasticity and cushion effect.

All Terrain Sole:
The cleated outsole have a variable height of 4 to 8mm and are rounded allowing to be self-cleaning. The outsole provides excellent grip on numerous ground types such as: melted, snowy, muddy, gravel soil. Also benefitting from a higher profile heel, giving greater safety when travelling up stairs or steep terrain. Available in Base Bison Top B0741 Boots and Base Camel Top B0716 Boots.

SlimCap:
A metal-free toe-cap offering lighter, greater flexibility than your regular steel option. This cap is also non-magnetic and thermal insulated, guaranteeing more comfort without giving up on design.
