1

upper materials

synthetic leather
full grain leather
synthetic mesh

2

midsole materials

EVA
CMEVA
dual density
polyurethane

3

outsole materials

carbon rubber
solid rubber
blown rubber

4

synthetic leather

no stretch, hydrophobic, engineered to be thin

5

full grain leather / natural

relaxes overtime - takes shape of foot, retains water, durable, used for protection

6

synthetic mesh

different thickness / weaves, hyrdophobic, doesn't stretch

7

EVA

foam, susceptible to compression set, very little structure, stamped out of foam

8

CMEVA

compression molded, molded using heat and pressure, structures midsole, vendors can add proprietary technologies, found in 99 perfect of midsoles

9

dual density

2 different densities of CMEVA foam, more dense section is placed on inside of shoe for stability and support, darker material under arch

10

Carbon rubber

combines solid rubber and carbon additives creating a more abrasion resistant compound, helps extend life of footwear

11

solid rubber

makes up the majority of outsoles, easily coloured, non-marking, durable

12

blown rubber

rubber injected with air, additional cushioning, less durable, combined with solid rubber
