Vibram Outlet Online presents 2022 global athlete team

Following strong performances by established athletes in Europe and China, the brand expands its roster of athletes in North America.

Vibram is expanding its athlete team into North America with eight new athletes joining its iconic family.

Across Europe and China, the brand has formed several award-winning athlete teams in the Climbing, Mountain Bike, Ski and Trail Running specialties throughout the years, allowing the company to stay connected with the outdoor community.

This year, the well-known faces of Gediminas Grinius, Matteo Della Bordella and Scotty Hawker, the undisputed protagonists of past sports seasons that have represented Vibram in the most important world expeditions and competitions will be joined by several US athletes as well as a group of new European talents. The other athlete in the team is the Italian ultrarunner and coach Stefano Ruzza, who launched the running coaching program “My Road to Ultra” that will bring six selected runners towards their first ultra-distance race in the US in March 2022.

The new athletes joining the Vibram US Trail Running Team are: Meredith Edwards (Pro Ultra Trail runner and Skialp athlete with numerous victories and podiums across the globe), Amber Febbraro (Elite Ultra Trail runner) , Alyssa Clark (Ultra Trail runner who holds the Guinness World Record for 95 Marathons in 95 Days), Abby Jahn (competitive skyrunner), Corbyn Jahn (elite triathlete and marathoner). Sienna Kopf (Combined Pan-American Champion 2021) and Kevin Capps (expert guide and climber with over 150 first ascents) will be part of the Vibram US Climbing Team, while Michael Mawn (men’s snowboard winner of the 2022 Freeride World Tour Baqueira Beret stop), joins the Vibram US Skialp Alpine team.

Joining the Vibram family’s European athlete team are Vincent Loustau (FR, Trail running Team, who’s expected to be a leader in the top ranking of the Skyrunner World Series), and Eliott Lapotre (FR, Mountain Bike Team). Despite their young age, Oriane Bertone (FR, Climbing Team) and Hamish McArthur (UK, Climbing Team) are already leading athletes in their discipline and are expected to bring the climbing world to another level.

Vibram will be sharing the races, projects and events of each athlete throughout the year on the brand’s social media channels and invites everyone to follow along to support, in-person or from afar.

Vibram and VEJA collaboration Outlet Store Online

Both teams created the Dekkan, a style influenced by VEJA’s running technology and Vibram’s know-how.

VEJA and Vibram’s collaboration calls for exploration with its new technical outdoor-inspired style. Both teams created the Dekkan, a style influenced by VEJA’s running technology and Vibram’s know-how.

The name inspiration dawns after the Dekkan lava plateau, located in India. An ancient remnant of Earth’s original continent formed by the time dinosaurs went extinct.

Together with the Italian company Vibram, VEJA has co-developed a unique formulation using Amazonian rubber, GEB (Granulado Escuro Brasiliano) for the outsole and VEJA’s EVA sugarcane-based for the midsole. Developed after several months of tests, VEJA and Vibram forged together the ultimate functional sole. The sole is a mix of ecological materials and Vibram’s world-leading technology. This collaboration brings together the synergy of both teams under one polyvalent style made for walking long distances.

The sole offers a good balance of grip, durability and abrasion resistance thanks to the GEB rubber, plus cushioning and energy return thanks to the E.V.A.

The upper crafted by VEJA and made of Alveomesh, 100% recycled polyester, is framed with waterproof TPU sidewalls and rubber pieces at the front and heel to offer protection.
