VANEDA Makes Difference..

Ümral ORAL - Member of the Board of Directors VANEDA

Issue 82 - June 2018

We are continuing our journey that we started in 2004 in İstanbul İkitelli, with the same enthusiasm that we had in the beginning, continuously adapting ourselves to what’s new, through research and development. With the philosophy of always aiming to produce the better, we participated in the projects of new design - new technology shoes and boots four years ago, with Turkish Armed Forces. Our primary aim in the boots and shoes we designed was not only foot comfort but also resistance in the most challenging conditions and usability in different weather conditions.

I would like to proudly announce that our New Generation Waterproof Shoes and Boots designed with Breathable Technology, which we developed thanks to the investments made and after two years of long, hard work, successfully passed the field and laboratory tests, and are now being supplied within the Turkish Armed Forces. 

With this new technology, the shoes and boots remain water-proof and do not get wet and heavy in rain or snow, even in case of wearing them for long periods of time, dry quickly and thanks to its breathable design, prevent fungal infection of the feet.  When required, they are designed to provide thermal insulation up to -38 °C for cold weather conditions, thus protecting the feet from cold. This will put an end to the problems suffered by our soldiers for years due to boots designed with outdated technology. 

Our company, which proceeds with its investments at a fast pace, continues providing its services  to the sector in the best way possible, at its new 5.000m2 factory, with a manufacturing capacity of 500.000 pairs of boots and shoes per year.

It is obvious that our soldiers need the best equipment and mobility, especially in these hard times that our country is going through. I would also wish for other suppliers to support such projects and to aim to increase the mobility capacity of our army to the highest level possible.
