ITAFLEX: Increasing the outsoles diversity

October 30, 2018

We teamed up with ITAFLEX to expand the outsoles options for designers. The manufacturer is already making women molds for the rubber cup sole for the next sneakers being launched.

Founded in 1980, ITAFLEX has working in the national and international marketplace. The Portuguese company is known for making components in EVA, SBR and TR, using high-quality raw materials.

Our fourth style was designed by Kaito Choy and will be released very soon in women and man sizes.

WAU opens the pre-order for the 3rd colorway of the COMMA.

This CW came along with a minor detail change, taking minimalism to an extreme, reflecting the designer’s influence and vision.

The braided laces of the OG colorways were substituted by premium waxed cotton laces, allowing a smoother lacing and unlacing.

This new colorway, ASH, features premium charcoal textured suede upper paired with tonal natural rubber outsole inspired by the rich texture and depth of ash. The premium waxed cotton laces come in light grey, for a touch of contrast.
