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.

i-daptive:
The intelligent system for dynamic comfort. The revolutionary technology created by Base Protection for the new Kaptiv shoe line. i-daptive is the smart system that adapts to the foot to give you an incredible feeling of dynamic comfort. The i-daptive system works on several levels: it gives stability to the foot and, in case of small lateral oscillations, corrects the axis of the foot, bringing it back to the optimal position; it facilitates the walk, giving fluidity to the heel-toe transition, through a modular process called "variable geometry"; it 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. i-daptive has a variable behavior that changes depending on the type of work, to ensure safety and comfort in every condition. Anti-fatigue, redues the risk of trauma and sprains in bad terrain through absorption, dissapation, stability and return of energy.

Dry'n Air is a technology, patented by Base Protection, which guarantees the air circulation inside the shoe. It can be built in the sole (Platinum Line) or in the anatomic removable footbed (Record, Planet and Miss Base Lines).7 Dry'n Air PLUS is a built-in air canal system combined 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 result is: more elasticity and cushion effect.
