Vibram is the world leader in the production of high performance rubber soles for the sports, industrial, leisure, orthopedic, and repair markets. In 1935 , Italian Alpine Club member Vitale Bramani was part of an expedition on Resica Mountain where six climbers lost their lives, due in part to their low-quality footwear. Upon his return, Bramani had the brilliant idea of prototyping a vulcanized rubber sole with help from the rubber experts at the Pirelli Tire Company. This breakthrough, along with the design of the Carrarmato Sole, revolutionized mountain climbing and the footwear world. Thus, Vibram was born. The Vibram name is an acronym of its founderÕs name, Vitale Bramani . Over the last 75 years, Vibram has been committed to developing an extensive range of high-performance soling products for a wide variety of activities and lifestyles. Thanks to ongoing investments in research and development, Vibram has cultivated an international reputation synonymous with quality, performance, and safety . VIBRAM AND REPAIRS Since the mid-1950s, Vibram has also been a leading player in developing products designed for the shoe repair market. Every year, Vibram creates soling products with unique designs and compounds speciÞ cally intended for repairing all types of footwear. Every day, all over the world, thousands of shoemakers put their trust in Vibram products to guarantee the best results for their customers. Vitale Bramani, Italian mountaineer and inventor of the Vibram sole A LEGEND IN EVERY CORNER OF THE WORLD 2

Vibram is headquartered in Albizzate, Italy. With corporate o ces in Boston, Massachusetts and production facilities located in North BrookÞ eld, Massachusetts, Vibram has long been recognized as the leader in high performance soles. Vibram soles are used in extreme conditions such as Þ reÞ ghting, mining, and gas and oil exploration. Vibram soles are engineered to meet the rigorous standards of each industry. That same dedication toward performance is put into the soles, heels, toplifts, and sheet products that are produced speciÞ cally for the outdoor and casual footwear markets. With a global network of production facilities, Vibram takes great pride in our rich history of Made in America; Vibram has been producing soles in the US since 1964 and proudly provides soles to every branch of the US Military. The Vibram Technology Center (VTC) is home to a state-of-the-art research and development center, along with an impressive 12,000 square foot Performance Test Center (PTC). Equipped with climbing walls, ice room, rain simulation, articulating and Þ xed pitch ramps and many other simulated environmental conditions, the PTC is designed and equipped to ensure that our products are thoroughly tested in a variety of conditions.

VIBRAM PERFORMANCE Each new Vibram product is designed for a particul ar use and engineered to meet three objectives: performance, comfort, and durability . The secret to Vibram performance lies in the combination of an innovative, functional design , and the compounds we use. VIBRAM DESIGN Vibram designers are not only experts in appearance , they are technical experts trained to evaluate the characteristics each sole needs to have for its intended use. Vibram designers also work in close collaboration with the Vibram Tester Team . Our designers use the Tester Team’s feedback when designing new product for speciÞ c applications. Designers also collaborate with many biomechanical research institutes in order to identify new lines, volumes, and forms, all with the goal of developing functional and comfortable soles while ensu ring top performance. 4

Before Vibram products reach the market, they are all tested us ing strict quality controls. We carry out these tests in our SAT RA- certiÞ ed laboratories by certiÞ ed technicians or directly in the Þ eld by the Vibram Tester Team. Every Vibram sole has to pass three levels of testing to guarantee that the product quality meets the end consumer’s requirements. STAGELABORATORY TESTS Laboratory tests are necessary to determine the physical-mechani cal characteristics of a compound (resistance to slip, abrasion , elasticity, hardness, density, etc.). These tests can be carried out both on soles and sheet samples. density hardness abrasion nominal stress at break elongation at break tear resistance isooctane resistance electrical resistance, antistatic ESD resistance to heat by contact fl ame resistance peeling test Vibram designed and developed DYCO (dynamic compression system).

In addition to extensive laboratory testing, soles are also tested with Vibram In-Vivo test protocols. Vibram In-Vivo test meth ods have been designed and developed to replicate real world usage of Vibram products. Tests for attributes such as “static grip” use the proprietary MAX TRACTION MERIDIAN test protocols. MAX TRACTION MERIDIAN property of Vibram SpA These tests are intended to illustrate the di erences between speciÞ c sole design and compound parings, and allow for the calculation of each pairing’s static coe cient of friction. STAGE 2 N VIVO TESTS STAGEFIELD TESTS The third and Þ nal stage of Vibram testing is Þ eld testing conducted by the Vibram Tester Team. Testing is performed in situations which duplicate both intended and extreme uses. The tester team conducts “blind” tests, taking every product to the limit of its speciÞ c use. During this stage, testers compare the design and compounds of di erent products without the knowledge of the particulars. Once testing is complete, only the best products will be approved for production and launched into the market. TEST CENTER 7

CERTIFIED SAFETY AND QUALITY The REACH system – set up by the European Union – is a system for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and restriction of CHemicals for the purpose of improving the safeguarding of human health and the environment. By better identifying the intrinsic properties of chemicals, REACH also contributes to maintaining competition and strengthening the spirit of innovation of the chemical industry in Europe. Vibram is the Þ rst company to work in full compliance with all REACH criteria. Vibram also has a policy to work only with raw material suppliers who comply with these same criteria. REACH SATRA, the leading worldwide research center for footwear technology, research and development, provides its support and expert ise in all stages of product development, from initial research to the evaluation of materials and components, up to and including testing and certiÞ cation, guaranteeing the highest levels of quality. Vibram boasts close daily collaboration with SATRA. The Vibram Technological Center in China and our USA manufacturing facility both have SATRA certiÞ cation. SATRA 8
