Research Triangle Park, North Carolina - Skydex Technologies has partnered with Sof Sole to incorporate its thermoplastic polyurethane shock absorbing technology into Sof Sole's line of performance insoles.
Skydex of Denver, Colorado, will join with Sof Sole by licensing its patented geometric twin-hemisphere technology for use in the Sof Airr line. Skydex said in a 18 Aug announcement that its TPU solution has proven far more effective and far more resilient than other foam products.
The technology is primarily used in products that provide head-to-toe protection of troops and military equipment, but is also used in athletic footwear and other commercial applications, according to Skydex.
"With Sof Sole's heritage of incorporating the best technology in our performance insoles, Skydex's innovative solutions for compact and lightweight shock absorption will help Sof Sole advance to the next level," said Seth Richards, ceo of Sof Sole parent company Implus, headquartered in North Carolina.
