UT Lab was started because 3 individuals were bold enough to dream big. In every piece of footwear they create they reflect three principles: innovate, collaborate, and inspire. UT Lab’s shoes are built from a variety of unique materials for incredible lightweight comfort.
UT LAB'S “SOFT-TOUCH” MICROFIBER: This microfiber is similar to cleaning cloths used for delicate surfaces like lenses. Using a special type of microfiber that is non-split and flash spun, this microfiber optimizes comfort, form, durability and quick-dry properties.
LEATHER-GRADE MICROFIBER AND CREATURE-CONSCIOUS: This microfiber has been specially produced to replicate—and in some aspects improve on— the performance of traditional boot leather. A lighter, more durable, and of course a creature-conscious material.
THE LOOK & FEEL OF LEATHER: the use of “leather-grade” microfiber allows us to also provide the look and feel of leather without using animal‐derived materials.
IMPOSSIBLY LIGHT AND INCREDIBLY STRONG INSOLE: UT Lab shoes come equipped with an athletic-inspired poliyou insole that provides a natural feeling and it is antimicrobial and anti-odor.
QUICK DRY TECHNOLOGY: “Soft-Touch” microfiber is susceptible to rain and water, but the flash-spun nature of our microfiber provides an initial light-barrier to water penetration, while also promoting a faster dry-time.
TEVEK: incredibly thin. impossibly strong. The UT LAB uses the highest grade of Tyvek® available. Tyvek® is a synthetic material that was "discovered" by Dupont™ in the 1950's and commercialized in the 60's. It looks and feels like paper, but is actually a brand of flashspun high-density polyethylene fibers. Imagine it as hair-like strands (0.5–10 µm) that have been spun together and then heated at extreme temperatures that proves to be an awesome barrier to liquids, while simultaneously being highly breathable.
PRE-WRINKLED FOR COMFORT: because 1082d Tyvek is fairly stiff, our team manipulates each piece of footwear by hand prior to lasting to promote a more comfortable wear pattern.
STRENGTH: These shoes have an amazing strength tolerance that prevents tearing and day-to-day abrasion. UT Labs has designed a printing application that allows us to preserve the color integrity of their shoes after real world wear and tear of sun, rain, and the tumbling of your washer and dryer.
