WHAT IS AN EVA SOLE?

More brands are using EVA soles in their shoes, so it’s no wonder you want to know what exactly they are! Simply put, an EVA sole is a plastic sole that can be lighter and more flexible than rubber. But this is just the surface of what these soles are and what their benefits are, which is why we’ve made the ultimate guide so you can see what EVA material can do for you.

WAS IST EVA?

EVA stands for Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate. That is an elastomeric polymer that produces materials which are "rubber-like" in softness and flexibility.  It is a plastic made by combining ethylene and vinyl acetate to create rubber like properties which can be used for shoe soles. 

EVA soles are resistant to corrosion caused by sea water, fats, oil, or chemicals (certain types of rubber degrade quickly when in contact with oil). It is also considered Safe und umweltfreundlich, due to its anti-bacterial and non-toxic properties. It is also relatively non-polluting.

What makes EVA a good choice (running or anything that will flex during walking) is the “low-temperature” toughness, stress-crack resistance, waterproof properties, and resistance to UV-radiation.”

FÜNF GRÜNDE, DIE WIR EVA SOLES VERWENDEN

 

  1. Mehr Flexibilität. EVA ist tendenziell weicher als Gummi, was bedeutet, dass es flexibler ist.

  2. Feuerzeug. Der EVA ist so viel leichter als Gummi. 

  3. Hält dich wärmer. EVA leitet nicht so viel Wärme, was bedeutet, dass Ihre Füße länger wärmer bleiben. Dies macht es zur idealen Sohle für unsere Schuhe.

  4. Federung. Unsere EVA-Sohlen absorbieren mehr Stöße und sorgen so für ein komfortableres Gehen oder Laufen in unseren Schuhen.

  5. Haltbarkeit. EVA-Sohlen können länger halten als andere Sohlen.
