ABOUT THE PROJECT

Unbelievable Testing Laboratory presents LIGHT WING Trainers - footwear that is extra light and provides comfortable wear. It is made of tyvek, brand of flashspun high-density polyethylene fibers, a synthetic material; the name is a registered trademark of DuPont.

The material is very strong; it is difficult to tear but can easily be cut with scissors or a knife. It looks and feels like paper and is used in different industries including footwear. It's an ultra light-weight material that is water-proof, but highly breathable.

The shoes will be produced in a limited edition of 2,013 items for the creators to be absolutely certain that they keep their promise to all of supporters. Once the project closes, the authors will be able to put together the material orders, and prepare the factory immediately thereafter. That means the shoes will be shipped from China direct to anywhere in the world by August 15th, and the shoes should be in backers’ hands ten days later.
