Research, Development, Design
The beating heart of innovation
The Research & Development – Design team of JV International sees the “product” as the result of a structured process, made up of research, development, passion and commitment. The product is configured as a synthesis of concepts “surface” and “contact“.
Each of our solutions starts from the consideration of the end experience of different people, with the aim of making it safe, performing and stylish.
This “experience driven” approach is the “obsession” that drives our researchers and designers every day to develop the best possible solutions and to define also the better suitable compounds. In this way we design the “performances” and so we obtain, not only a “sole”, but much more: the best experience, everywhere.
This is how JV International empowers its brand-partners, allowing them to change the rules of the game and make a difference in the following areas: Sports & Outdoor, Work & Uniform, Fashion & Lifestyle.
Global Thinking & taylor made solutions
Our designers make their international background available to brand partners. The result is highly customized solutions, which are conceived, obtained and produced in a path of listening and collaboration with our clients.

The technology allows to combine an extremely light and rigid carbon-fiber component with a multi-compound rubber tread that will offer the necessary performance in terms of grip and stability.
The core of Carbon Rubber is the “lamination coupling technology” between the carbon fiber element and the multi–compound rubber tread.
Hybrid 1 technologies refers to the recovery of waste materials deriving from previous productions process of rubber products and reintegration in sole compound.
Thanks to Hybrid 1 technologies, it is possible to obtain a range of compounds that aim to reduce the environmental impact from the process while maintaining an high level of performance.
The Ice control technology offers solutions to enhance the grip on ice, packed snow and slippery surfaces at low temperatures. Through specific technical design elements, combined with a specific rubber compound, it is possible to achieve excellent grip and stability performances in cold conditions.
The Mod mousse technology is a patented sole-system with multiple materials providing better comfort, grip and traction on outdoor (irregular) terrains. Thanks to its specific design of both rubber and expanded foams, the sole maintains contact with the ground securing constant adherence and excellent traction. The system works with 3 layers like a tyre; the structure (in EVA or PU), the “traction” (tread rubber) and the “Air-chamber” (can be PU or EVA).
Rubber TPU technologies refer to a manufacturing process in which TPU material is coupled directly over vulcanized rubber, creating a single body.
This technology creates an ideal bond between two materials with opposite characteristics: TPU, which gives stability, dimensional accuracy, rigidity and high slip on wet and cold surfaces; vulcanized rubber, which offers grip, flexibility, shock and vibration absorption.
Rubber TPU allows to achieve high performance in conditions in which these antithetical characteristics are required in the sole at the same time.
ØFF is a technology that defines a range of compounds made from bio-based materials. This technology replaces materials derived from fossil sources, while maintaining high performance in different application fields.
The ØFF solution means to realize high-quality and high-performance soles, by providing a remarkable reduction in fossil fuel materials.
The Traction power system is a technology that can produce an ideal bond between two thermoplastic materials with antithetical characteristics. This innovation makes it possible to obtain a sole with high rigidity and, at the same time, high tread grip on slippery terrain.
This technology, thanks to a reasonable structural flexibility, allows you to maintain an efficient pedalling when you are in the saddle while you have traction and grip in the stretches where you need to walk, ensuring greater ergonomics as well as durability and self-cleaning.
Aenean feugiat ligula in metus ornare pulvinar in non dui. Curabitur posuere purus dignissim, imperdiet sem non, fringilla purus. Etiam consectetur pulvinar dolor eget egestas. Morbi ullamcorper nibh ut est ornare, lobortis consequat nibh tincidunt. Cras feugiat lectus nisl, at tempor est vulputate vel. Duis faucibus nec ante eget tempor.
The Research & Development division is the driver of our success: we constantly analyze global demand and trends, we study movement in all its forms, in every context and in every climatic, environmental and situational condition.
Guided by this approach, we then propose a technological concentrate of ideas, solutions, design and materials that can “complete” and elevate footwear in terms of performance, aesthetics and style.
