LaLiga Club Levante Launch ‘Solidarity Sneakers’ To Raise Disability Awareness

August 24, 2020

  • Together with local company Timpers, the Valencian club has created limited edition trainers to show abilities of people with visual disabilities.
  • 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the shoes go to the sports projects of the Levante UD Foundation.

LaLiga Santander club Levante UD always aims to make its mark when it comes to social inclusion. Integration and equality are the underlying principles of a club that has worked to create opportunities for people of all backgrounds and increase its standing in society.

Levante UD’s latest project is to create a new line of trainers with a broader social relevance. It contacted the Valencian brand Timpers, whose employees include people with visual disabilities, with the idea of starting a pioneering initiative. “We got in contact with Timpers to find a common project that could provide visibility for the social work that is carried out by both entities,” said Alberto Gil, Communication Director of Levante UD.
