Our successes

VPS system
VPS system is created in 1980 by Pierre Joly.
He talks about an arch of the foot downside that affects a lot of people and athletes, which helps Christian Vermonet to imagine tennis shoes with a support of the arch of the foot. This would also prevent from adding orthotic insoles.
Christian add his own design touch to this concept, and it will give rise to VPS system shoes.

Aesthetically, this concept is very new and intriguing... and will hit its mark.
Boat shoes :
iconic and innovating
Boat shoes have initially been created for sailing. This technical shoe allows sailors to not slip on their deck thanks to its skid-proof sole. Our GLOBE design, created in 1989 for Vendée Globe's first edition, led us to became an iconic tbs shoe. Pierre Follenfant wore GLOBE shoes for Vendée Globe on his Tbs-Charente-Maritime boat. Famous sailors like Michel Desjoyeaux or François Gabart also wore tbs boat shoes for their greatest adventures.

Boat shoes carried our brand since the beginning and are now timeless shoes.
