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.

HVAD ER 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 sikker og miljøvenlige, 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.”

Fem grunde, vi bruger EVA-såler

 

  1. Mere fleksibilitet. EVA har tendens til at være blødere end gummi, hvilket betyder, at det har mere fleksibilitet.

  2. Lettere. EVA er så meget lettere end gummi. 

  3. Holder dig varmere. EVA leder ikke så meget varme, hvilket betyder, at dine fødder bliver varmere i længere tid. Dette gør den til den ideelle sål til vores fodtøj.

  4. Stødabsorption. Vores EVA-såler absorberer mere af trinpåvirkningen, hvilket giver en mere behagelig gåtur eller løb i vores sko.

  5. Holdbarhed. EVA-såler kan vare længere end andre såler.
