We all need at least one good pair of shoes. Whether it’s for working in a hazardous work environment or going on or for recreational activities. PVC shoe soles are among the top materials for making sturdy footwear.
During the last decade, the local and international PVC community has done a considerable amount of work to phase out the use of harmful chemicals in vinyl products in order to ensure they are safe for high human contact. This applies both to the wearer of the shoes, as well as the workers in the manufacturing plant who are daily exposed to the chemicals.
BENEFITS OF USING PVC IN SHOES
- Versatililty: There’s a lot you can do with PVC – from making military footwear to sportswear and fashion. The material is water and oil- resistant, so it’s easily maintained. A simple wipe is enough to keep going about your day.
- Affordability: Footwear with PVC soles are usually affordable because the material is easily accessible.
- Lightweight: PVC is ideal for comfortable, lightweight footwear designs
- Durability: PVC is durable and abrasion-resistant. This means the shoe soles do not tear or break easily if they are produced with the correct PVC compound. The material’s strength makes it long-lasting, so people who buy the shoes get to wear them for extended periods.
