Gabor Shoe Features
The Sacchetto construction is built upon a highly elastic moccasin structure, with a virtually seamless lining that gently hugs the foot. The absence of a midsole allows for increased flexibility and substantial cushioning underfoot.
Products crafted with our Best Fitting technology feature a broadened insole and widened tread area, delivering an increased step surface for the ball area of the foot.
Smart & Soft
Smart & Soft technology works to reduce pressure and alleviate any discomfort by incorporating increased padding on the heel and ball areas of the foot. Breathable leather soles help to neutralise odours.
Products with the Optifit construction feature removable footbeds that deliver increased shock absorption and can be easily removed for cleaning. Removable footbeds are also beneficial for those who require orthopaedic inserts.
Gabor’s removable insoles are crafted in two varieties: Ultra-Flex Air System insoles feature air ducts which deliver increased ventilation to keep feet fresh, whereas Shock Point insoles showcase an increased cushioning element in the heel.
Soft Move construction gives gentle support by providing increased reinforcement in areas of the feet that carry the most body weight. A layer of foam beneath the insoles provides soft padding and increased cushioning.
The Gabor Tex constitutes of a waterproof and windproof membrane to deliver protection from cold and damp terrains.
Hovercraft air cushioned soles provide a layer of shock-absorbing foam for added protection. A soft bedding of air chambers offers increased stability and support.
Rolling Soft products feature a multi-layered sole unit with a stabiliser underneath the arch of the foot to enable controlled movement. Cushioned heels help to provide a smoother walking gait and improve posture.
Stretch boots are particularly elastic and therefore do not require zippers. They caress the leg optimally. Stretch boots are typically slightly more inexpensive than leather boots. However, Gabor are using only the best Polyurethane based materials for stretch, the touch of which is hardly discernable from that of leather. Gabor does not use any PVC-based materials for stretch boots, as PVC can be a problem after use.
Soft, Comfortable and Unlined
Unlined shoes have no separate inner lining. In addition, a singularly cuddly vamp is used. This makes the shoes match your feet like a second skin. The result is shoes with unmatched softness, lightness and extraordinary wearing comfort. Ideal to wear barefoot!
A special sole makes the shoe follow perfectly the natural rolling motion of the foot. While the shoe is extremely flexible at the toes, it will remain warp-free at the instep or the heel. This allows the foot to roll naturally and safely. The result: A feeling almost like walking bare-foot.
Integrated footbeds adapt to the individual anatomy of the foot. This results in a marvellous wearing feeling and extra support. You will find Integrated footbeds in many Gabor Dianettes and Sandalettes.
