Glagla Shoes

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

The World Says "brrrr"...The French Say "glaglagla"

Hence, "The Feeling Of Cool"....
Just outside Paris, France is the world headquarters of the Glagla design team.
The original challenge was to create a shoe that was especially designed for warm weather activities. In essence, it would need to offer a unique ventilation system to cool the foot to a degree that no other shoe on the market was achieving. Making the creation of this shoe even more difficult was the desire to encompass this technological breakthrough in a group of fashionable and visually appealing designs.
The resulting Glagla line of footwear has become a huge hit. The product line has been referred to as "revolutionary" by industry insiders, as the first sport shoes in the world that provide natural ventilation and complete circulation of air throughout their entirety. Additionally, thanks to its shape, minimal weight, and flexibility, it protects the natural movement of the foot and creates the sensation of walking comfortably without shoes.
Global Brand Solutions, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of Glagla brand products in the United States and its territories.

Bamboo GL Technology

A Natural Anti-Bacterial
It is a common fact that bamboo grows naturally without any pesticides and requires less water than cotton. It is seldom infected by pests, thanks to its unique anti-bacterial bio-agent named "bamboo kun". Bamboo fiber has specific natural properties allowing it to act simultaneously as an effective, long lasting anti-bacterial and deodorant. In fact, even after fifty washing machine cycles, bamboo fiber fabric retains all of its excellent anti-bacterial properties.

Green & Biodegradable
As regenerated cellulose, bamboo fiber comes 100% from bamboo, through a natural and eco-friendly chemical-free high-tech process. Bamboo fiber is totally biodegradable, so it decomposes naturally in the ground thanks to the combination of micro-organisms and the effect of the sun. This natural process causes absolutely no environmental pollution.

"Bamboo fiber originates from nature, and totally returns to nature in the end". This amazing textile is praised by many environmental experts as "the new eco-friendly material of the 21st century"

Breathable and Cool
Bamboo fiber has two amazing benefits: breath ability and coolness. Thanks to its cross-section structure, bamboo fiber is filled with micro-cavities that allow for ventilation and moisture absorption. As a result, the fabric stays cool and provides amazing wicking and moisture management properties.

Pure, Comfortable and Beneficial
Bamboo fiber is defined as « pure » because it prevents and eliminates mold. It has a pleasing touch, with the softness of silk. Moreover, scientific studies are discovering that bamboo yarn generates mini ions which have an extremely positive effect on our bloodstream, helping to reduce fatigue, stimulate metabolism, and improve our overall well-being.
