How Sondor assists the Footwear Industry

Sondor provides footwear foam for the production of various parts of shoes. With extensive experience, Sondor manufactures and supplies foam for a range of solutions.

Our cross-linked closed cell expanded Polyethylene and EVA foam blend, Ortho-Superior, is the best solution for podiatry and shoemaking. It is easily vacuum formed and drape moulded, which maintains its elasticity. EVA is an affordable, lightweight material that provides great comfort for your feet. It's often considered more comfortable than traditional midsole and outsole materials like cork or leather because it doesn't have the same firmness as those two choices do. EVA has a soft touch with good shock absorption capabilities!
