Timpers: slippers designed by the blind and accessible to everyone

A differentiating element is the only thing the three boys from the Timpers startup needed to enter the competitive footwear sector: sneakers designed by blind people. From Alicante to all over the world, the brand seeks to promote accessibility and integration into the labour market of people who are "more than capable" of showing that they can live on quality and not on charity.

Promoted by the students of the University of Alicante Diego Soliveres (Law), Aitor Carratalá (Architecture) and Roberto Mohedano (ADE), the company was born in the summer of 2018 within the Alicante football team for the blind, where Soliveres is a player, Carratalá a coach and Mohedano a guide. One day, the last two brought the team some shoes designed by them and, after observing the way the materials were seen and the flexibility of the garment by the sportsmen, they decided together with Diego to make a model designed by all the teammates that won the "Emprende y Discapacidad 2018" award of the UA and originated Timpers.
