The region of Dubrovnik is famous – among other things – for its outstanding quality wines, the wine hills of Pelješac being at the forefront of this region’s wine produc on. Winemaking on the Pelješac peninsula boasts a long and rich history, going back to the times of ancient Greeks and Romans.
Today, a new and different history is being created on Pelješac, thanks to Krek Wine Brotherhood. In fact, Krek is the newest generation of the excellent and competent winemakers and producers of Pelješac, whose joy of companionship and love for the na ve soil is being infused into some of the best Croatian wines.
Du Motion has recognized Krek Wine Brotherhood as the ideal merge of the tradition and future of the Croatian wine production. Now it’s your turn to do the same!
After the race, surrender to the sinful pleasure offered by supreme plavac / rukatac wine sort, in a limited Du Motion series that was created by Krek Wine Brotherhood especially for you.
Exactly 40 years ago, the designers of Borovo, the biggest and oldest Croatian shoe manufacturer, begun producing Startas sneakers. Originally designed for table tennis players, Startas soon grew to be a true fashion hit in ex-Yugoslavia and the most famous brand of this factory based in the city of Vukovar. These sneakers turned out so popular that customers queued in long lines to buy them, and Borovo’s production of Startas was often surpassed by the incessant market demand. Since that long-gone year of 1976, the millions of pairs of Startas sneakers have been made.
In the meantime, Startas survived the Croatian independence War, the breakup of Yugoslavia and the downfall of market and eventually experienced a resurrection in 2007.
Today, Startas sneakers, made by hand from the natural materials, have gone far beyond the domestic borders. Startas are now conquering new markets such as Canada, United States, France, Singapore and Australia. Recently, the U.S edition of Vogue magazine featured these Croatian sneakers in their holiday edition.
We are proudly announcing that Du Motion Expo offers all of our runners a new limited edition of Startas sneakers, made especially by Borovo for Du Motion – Runners’ Days Dubrovnik.
Du Mo on wishes Borovo a very happy birthday and many, many more of Startas sneakers!
