Get the Most Out of Your Shoes by Putting Sorbothane Insoles In Them

Foam in shoes can wear out over time due to a combination of factors, including usage, weight, and the environment. Here are some ways in which foam in shoes can wear out:

  1. Compression: The foam in shoes can compress over time, especially in high-pressure areas such as the heel and ball of the foot. This can cause the foam to lose its cushioning ability and reduce the overall comfort and support of the shoe.

  2. Moisture: Exposure to moisture, whether from sweat or external sources such as rain, can cause foam to break down more quickly. Moisture can also promote the growth of bacteria, which can cause odors and further break down the foam.

  3. Weight: The weight of the wearer can also contribute to foam wear and tear. People who are heavier may compress the foam more quickly than those who are lighter.

  4. Friction: Friction between the foot and the shoe can cause the foam to break down more quickly, especially in areas where there is a lot of rubbing, such as the heel or toe box.

  5. Age: Over time, foam can break down naturally due to age, even if it is not being used regularly.

It's important to note that the rate at which foam in shoes wears out can vary depending on the quality of the foam, the type of shoe, and how often it is used. Adding a Sorbothane insole to your shoes improves and restores the cushioning characteristics. Thanks to the durability of modern outsole materials, many modern shoes will hold up longer than their cushioning foam does. Using Sorbothane insoles in all your shoes will help you appreciate their comfort long and reduce how often you need to replace them. Its both a comfortable and sustainable solution. Regular maintenance, such as cleaning and airing out the shoes, can help prolong the life of the foam and improve overall shoe performance.
