Vibram is highlighting its continued commitment to innovation, safety, trust and confidence

/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – As a brand with a long history of serving the various work and safety occupations, Vibram is highlighting its continued commitment to innovation, safety, trust and confidence with a new global campaign, ‘Work with Trust’.

Primarily digital, the campaign centers around a cinematic film shot by international film agency ‘True Colour Films’, with the direction of Achille Mauri, showcasing professional construction workers at Italian construction company, Gheller, as they go about their daily, extraordinary jobs on site.

Filmed in the wonderful and demanding landscape of Liguria (Italy), the campaign shows the workers in their Vibram soles as they climb ropes, ladders, rocks and more, capturing a typical, but extraordinary, day in the life of real workers as they work hard to make the world a better, safer place for us all. Truly an authentic display of the brand’s innovative technology in use by work and safety professionals. In addition to construction, Vibram’s reach spans healthcare, firefighting, and military, amongst other heavy-duty roles requiring the very best technologies to provide trust, safety and confidence every day.

Vibram’s constant research and innovation are key to its authenticity in these environments and this new brand campaign is designed to highlight that.

Fabrizio Gamberini, Global Chief Brand Officer and President says: “Vibram is committed to providing all our consumers with world-class technologies and products no matter what they are doing. Whether it’s a sole for a sneaker, a hiking boot, or a climbing shoe, our innovations are renowned the world over and our consumers trust us. With the work and safety consumers, we pride ourselves on the specific relationship we have – giving them the confidence in their daily work to do their challenging tasks with trust and safety. That is what this campaign is all about. Celebrating those professionals and their trust in Vibram.”
