Footwear

With almost any footwear brand, you're faced with the difficult task of balancing quality and style with comfort. The phase change materials (PCM) in Outlast® technology can facilitate that balancing act by helping to reduce heat and moisture to reduce blisters and increase comfort.

As Outlast® technology proactively responds to changes in foot temperature, it absorbs, stores and releases heat to reduce sweat and odor. It’s a benefit that provides greater comfort and healthier feet all day long. From socks and insoles to sneakers, shoes, boots and safety gear, the Outlast® technology developed for NASA can keep your customers just as comfortable - please have a look at our short footwear video. The following are some examples of footwear products and the appropriate Outlast® material to use.

44% Less Perspiration in Footwear...

... can be achieved utilizing Outlast® materials.

One example: Constant movement in a closed environment, like a golf shoe, typically generates extra heat and more perspiration, resulting in blistering and odor. With Outlast® technology, footwear products reduce perspiration by as much as 44%, helping feet stay drier and more comfortable, whether you're practicing your putt or out for a full 18 holes.
