At Outdoor by ISPO 2019 in Munich, Porcher Sport will present its innovative thermoplastic insoles for footwear developed with Sidas. The insole is thermoformable at 80ºC and becomes extremely pliable when immersed in boiling water, in order to form to the shape of the shoe it’s being used in, for a highly customized fit. This means these insoles can be fitted at home by the customer, in contrary to other similar insoles on the market that have to be thermoformed at much higher temperatures. The thin and lightweight product offers advanced comfort and cushioning, and is ideal for hiking, skiing and other rugged outdoor activities.
