SUSTAINABLY SOURCED

VALUE DRIVEN

  • Dynamic Foam recognizes its responsibility to help protect the environment and has developed the iON Element™ materials.

  • These are derived from a single-source recycling/repurposing program utilizing EVA film originally used to cover greenhouses.

  • The EVA film is melted down when it is no longer used.  The melted EVA film is then extruded and pelletized to create the base material for the iON Element ™  foam.

  • Most recycled foams lose integrity when recycled due to contamination, but because single-stream clean recycling is used, the iON Element ™ foam is at the top of the industry in performance and longevity. 

MATERIALS

Quality footwear begins with quality material. Through our exclusive relationship with the Korean Institute of Footwear and Leather Technology (a leading research campus devoted to the innovation of footwear material), Dynamic Foam offers a range of custom foam and rubber compounds that are geared towards high performance, comfort, sustainability, and durability.

We have developed over 80 types of unique and proprietary formulations – allowing us to closely collaborate with our customers to customize material specifications to their needs and products. Materials are offered in the form of pellets and finished product.

BIO-MECHANICAL SHAPE

SUPPORT + BALANCE

FOR A SUPERIOR FIT

  • The unique shape of our insoles & midsoles create a consistent experience for the consumer.

  • A perfect blend of comfort & support is achieved through the design philosophy of Proprioception (the users perception of movement & spatial awareness).

  • The surface contact area in increased which is perceived by the foot as support, thus relaxing the muscles, reducing fatigue resulting in elevated comfort & performance.

  • Dynamic Foam designs share a common architecture, but are customized based on individual customer needs.

SHAPE

Shape creates comfort. By using an anatomical shape to increase the surface contact between your foot and insole, you are allowing the foot to be supported and thus relax; increasing blood circulation and allowing the 100 muscles and 40,000 nerve endings in your feet to function properly.

There are 2 main features of our shape: the arch profile and the heel cup. The arch is the hinge of this support mechanism and the deep countered heel cup helps secure your foot to the shoe; minimizing pronation and foot movement.

The outsole is what locks you to ground, the insole is what locks you to the shoe. Comfort and performance must be looked at from top down, accounting for the whole of the product. Creating a biomechanical shape, deep wrapping heel cup, structuring arch, brings a natural alignment and comfort to the foot.
