Flexibility and protection for sea adventures Get ready to weigh anchor with the UYN SKIPPER, the nautical-inspired model that is perfect for trips out to sea. The shoe features a special declination of our high-performance U-CONTROL sole with a rubber tread that doesn’t leave marks on the surface once you step aboard. In addition, UYN SKIPPER's special TUNE LACES made of recycled microfiber has metal eyelets that provide extra lacing support and won't rust in contact with water. The inside of the upper is made of Natex, the bio-based fiber derived from castor beans that is 25% lighter and dries 50% faster than traditional nylon. While the HI-FORCE yarn, light and elastic, guarantees great resistance to wear and tear. On the inside, UYN SKIPPER has the innovative REBOUND SHIELD that makes the shoe extremely flexible and creates additional water protection in the space between the upper and the sole.

The micro-structure of the HI-FORCE yarn features a special coating that provides extraordinary mechanical properties: high tenacity, great wear and tear resistance.
With the special NATEX yarn, UYN lets nature work for your wellbeing. NATEX is especially light and reduces the weight by 25 percent. NATEX garments dry up to 50 percent faster than comparable nylon clothing. The 100 %-natural organic fiber is more elastic and the bacteriostatic effect minimizes odors.
Hemp fabric is made using fibers from the stalks of the Cannabis sativa, a plant that has been recognized as a source of extraordinary durable textile fibers for thousands of years. We chose this natural fabric to make the insole of your UYN shoes. Hemp is the most durable natural textile and highly resistant to pilling. At the same time it provides excellent ventilation, moisture absorption and a bacteriostatic effect. Hemp insole cools your feet in summer and keeps the skin dry.
REBOUND SHIELD is the innovative patent solution created by UYN designers to make our shoes even more performing. A special internal structure integrated into the footwear that provides the perfect connection between the upper and the sole and ensures extraordinary properties in terms of lightness and flexibility. With the features of REBOUND SHIELD, UYN shoes become 20% lighter and 20% more elastic, elements that ensure perfect walking support and great responsiveness at every step. The strategic position of the REBOUND SHIELD ensures an additional waterproof layer in the areas most exposed to external moisture without compromising the breathability of the shoe.
When running, the first contact with the ground causes impact forces on the body. The U-Control Sole absorbs these forces – supported by the EVA material and structure of the entire midsole. While keeping the sole flexible, responsive, low-abrasion rubber U-shaped elements cushion the impact of the road. Full control with every step.
