Advantages of a lighter sole
Heavy soles can quickly lead to fatigue when walking due to the additional weight on the bottom of each foot.
Having lighter soles has a further benefit, compared to heavy rubber soles, we save on Air Mail postage costs so can offer a premium quality product for an even lower international Air Mail inclusive price!
Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use
Our chunky PU soles used on our top-of-the-range boots are non-marking and suitable for both outdoor and indoor use. If you plan to use them outdoors in the wet and snow, you may wish to roughen the sole bottoms by using them initially on a surface such as concrete to take away any initial residue that gives them that brand new shine.
Multi-layered sole for comfort
As shown in the cutaway image, we incorporate a multi-layer sole system. The plush genuine sheepskin innersole is glued to the foam rubber (low density EVA) cushioning layer. This allows quick, easy removal and replacement of the innersole. Many customers purchase a spare innersole so they can either alternate between innersoles perhaps to allow one to dry or a replacement to give that brand new feeling after a few months of wear.
Ultra-Flexible TPR Side-Stitched Slipper Sole
Several of our sheepskin slipper styles feature this excellent sole. It is light in weight, ultra-flexible and robust. Being side-stitched, it is firmly attached to the slipper using lock-stitching around the sides of the soles.
TPR which stands for Thermo Plastic Rubber consists of high tech resins and polymers. This results in a modern, flexible sole with a rubber feel to it whilst being much lighter than old fashioned rubber soles.
Being side-stitched, the sheepskin innersole can be replaced. When the innersole is worn, tear it away from the card runner inside the sole and glue in one of our plain sheepskin innersoles.
EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) soles are the lightest of all the hard soles.
They are firmly attached to the uppers with a heat activated glue via a card runner.
We tend to use the EVA sole for slippers and boots designed for mainly indoor and light outdoor use. It is hard wearing and the front tapers to improve flexibility.
This type of sole is very commonly used for sheepskin footwear. UGG Australia use this type of sole on their Classic Short and Tall range of ugg boots. Our Classic EVA range are similar but have the added benefit of being made here in New Zealand instead of in countries like China.
Our EVA soled slippers will normally have the basket weave pattern but our Classic EVA boots can have either this or the ridged pattern. The basket weave is generally preferable for mainly indoor use and the ridged pattern offers a little more grip for outdoor use. If you have a strong preference, you can request a sole tread type when ordering or email in advance so we can check stock on hand for you.
Our Kids Bootie Slipper features an upgraded ridged EVA hard sole with shaped heel.
Hide Soft Sole
Cattle hide is used for the sole which is color matched with the twinface sheepskin uppers.
A thin foam layer is sandwiched between the hide sole and sheepskin innersole.
The three layers is securely held together with fabric binding neatly sewn all the way around the slipper.
A soft hide sole is ideal for those who prefer an extremely soft, comfortable sole for use just indoors.
