What is an EVA sole?

Discover the ultimate benefits of shoes with Eva soles. Experience unrivalled cushioning, support and durability.

When it comes to comfortable and durable shoes, an Eva sole is a real winner. This type of sole is made from ethylene vinyl acetate, a high-quality material known for its cushioning and shock-absorbing properties. Eva soles are lightweight, flexible and provide excellent support for the feet, making them a popular choice for footwear for different styles and activities. Whether you're out hiking or strolling around town, shoes with Eva soles offer an unrivalled level of comfort and stability.

Apart from the comfort factor, Eva soles are also characterised by their exceptional durability. They are wear-resistant and therefore the ideal choice for long-lasting footwear. This means you can rely on your Eva-soled shoes for years to come without having to worry about frequent replacements. With their excellent cushioning and long-lasting benefits, Eva soles are a smart investment for anyone looking for quality and performance in their footwear.

As well as being comfortable and durable, Eva soles are also easy to clean and maintain, adding to their appeal and making them an excellent choice for your next pair of shoes.

Here are five reasons why we choose EVA soles:

  1. More flexibility. EVA tends to be softer than rubber, which means that more flexibility can be achieved.
  2. Lighter. EVA is lighter than rubber, which in combination with the merino wool upper results in a much lighter shoe.
  3. Keeps you extra warm. EVA conducts less heat than other similar materials, which means your feet stay warm for longer in cold temperatures.
  4. Shock absorption. Our EVA soles absorb impact particularly well, making for a more comfortable and smoother walk or run in our shoes.
  5. Durability. EVA soles have a long life expectancy.
